OVERVIEW

A Gibson classic in a gorgeous Heritage Cherry finish and enhanced with L.R. Baggs electronics.

From a company that has brought the guitar world so many great originals, the Hummingbird stands out strong and proud. Introduced in 1960 as Gibson's first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by several prime movers on the scene. In the hands of everyone from Keith Richards to Gram Parsons, it quickly proved itself equally adept at folk, country and rock, and excelled at many of the crossovers genres in between that helped to set the scene for the '60s.

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 thrumming out first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking leadlines further up the neck. 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 of accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today' alternative singer-songwriter.

Made in the image of the original, in Gibson's acclaimed acoustic facility in Bozeman, MT, today's Hummingbird lives up to its pedigree, bringing you all of these capabilities and more as, quite simply, one of the finest acoustic guitars available today. This particular model includes the minimalistic L.R. Baggs VTC pickup for accurate plugged-in tone and a special Heritage Cherry finish.

Included hardshell case.

Comments about Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Square Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I'm writing this only clarify some of the information in the specs section. I've written Musician's Friend several times about this and they even acknowledged their error, but haven't seem to fix it. The scale length of this guitar is not 25.5 but 24.75 (short scale). It also comes with a case and electronics. If interested, look at the Gibson site for accurate specs for this 2016 model.
