What we say:

This new left-handed 2018 Hummingbird AG model from Gibson is a more subtle affair than the historical models but it still has an eye for detail: you’ll find an abalone rosette, a newly shaped ‘avant garde’ pickguard and tasteful binding on this handsome instrument.

Gibson have opted for the excellent sounding combination of Sitka Spruce and Walnut to make a perfect mix of body, cut, liveliness and balance. This combination works especially well when used in the hummingbird’s square shouldered dreadnought-like body shape. The depth to the body is slightly less than on traditional models, lending slightly more balance and emphasis to the midrange. Flatpicking, heavy strumming and soft fingerpicked passages all shine with equal flair.

This model is finished in Antique Natural nitrocellulose and also features a cutaway in the lower bout for easier access to those top frets.

An LR Baggs Element pickup and preamp allows for an extremely high-quality plugged-in tone too so your new prized Gibson can go straight onto a stage with you! This excellent left-handed guitar covers all the bases, with a fresh look of its own and plenty of Gibson heritage.
