About Gibson Hummingbird

The Gibson Hummingbird is considered by many to be gold-standard of acoustic guitars. Incredible design and construction make these guitars instantly identifiable, not only with their signature stunning looks, but also with their clear and vibrant sound. The Gibson Hummingbird has been sitting comfortably at the top of the acoustic pyramid since the 1960's and it's easy to see why. It is very similar to a dreadnought in shape and sound.

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.

Some of the acoustic guitars included in this range are the Gibson Hummingbird Original, Studio, Heritage and Standard with unmistakable Gibson Hummingbird designs including cherry sunburst and antique natural finishes.
