About Gibson Hummingbird
The Gibson Hummingbird is one of Gibson's best loved and most recognisable acoustic guitar models. It is very similar to a dreadnought in shape and sound. The Hummingbird has remained roughly the same in design and appearance since it was first released in 1960. The Hummingbird is described by Gibson as being a square shouldered acoustic. It famously gets its name from the intricately decorated pickguard displaying a floral graphic of a Hummingbird.
The Gibson Hummingbird is generally built with the classic combination of solid Mahogany and Solid Spruce. This tried and tested formula generates a large sound full of character, liveliness and body. This is perfect for both strumming and fingerpicking. Performers love this guitar as it provides a large and beautiful accompaniment to vocal performances. Some models have Rosewood instead of Mahogany, which takes away a little of the mids and brings in a deeper low end.
Available in a range of finishes, the most well known is possibly the Vintage Cherry Sunburst. This is a classic finish not only for the Hummingbird but for Gibson as a brand. There are now a number of Hummingbird models on offer from Gibson. This includes Vintage reissue models, models with cutaways and even 12 string Hummingbirds!
