Classic design, improved

Gibson acoustic guitars have a reputation for being some of the best acoustic instruments out there, with well over 100 years of experience and craftsmanship behind them – and the Hummingbird is no exception. While staying true to what makes these instruments legendary, Gibson Acoustic loaded this Hummingbird with an updated LR Baggs Element VTC pickup system for amazing onstage tone. The Hummingbird also features softened fingerboard edges for a fast, comfortable feel, and the new oil finish penetrates deeply to maximize your tone. It’s the same guitar that made the Hummingbird an icon, but with modern touches today’s players demand.

Dressed up deadnought style

The Gibson Hummingbird brought a subtle new body style and a bold new look to Gibson’s dreadnought family. The Hummingbird was Gibson’s first square-shoulder body shape. To emphasize the importance of the new model, Gibson outfitted the original Hummingbird with such eye-catching features as a Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish, double parallelogram fingerboard inlays, multi-layered binding, and a pickguard engraved with a hummingbird and blossoms. These appointments are translated perfectly on the new Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird.

Quality construction

As discriminating guitarists immediately discovered, underneath the Hummingbird’s flashy ornamentation is a solid guitar. This incarnation of the Hummingbird brings you the same square shoulder design, with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. These tonewoods come together to give the Hummingbird a sweet, warm tonality that sits well in countless musical situations. The guitarists at Sweetwater know how important playability is, and no Hummingbird goes out the door without the famed Plek-assisted setup, offering you great action, spot-on intonation, and a buzz free instrument that is just about perfect.
