The Gibson Hummingbird is one of the most iconic acoustic guitars ever known to man; it's a versatile guitar that can be played with multiple styles across multiple genres. The new 2016 edition comes with numerous improvements such as an upgraded pick up system and an improved feel in the fingerboard edge, all whilst keeping those classic, rich tones which it's known for. It looks pretty fantastic too with a gorgeous heritage cherry sunburst finish, and unique tortoise hummingbird pick guard that ensures this guitar will be one of your best playing experiences every time you pick it up.

Product Specification:

Much of the Hummingbird's appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking lead lines. Its spacious mahogany body and sweet, select sitka spruce top are more than capable of nailing down the rhythm in the hands of a rock and roll sideman, or accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today's alternative singer-songwriter.
