Product# J24258

An old classic reborn again with special thermally cured top to give it that old school look and tone.

Introduced in 1960 as Gibson' first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by the prime movers on the scene. Built with thermally cured sitka spruce top, the 2016 Hummingbird True Vintage reflects the appearance and performance of those early iconic instruments. The thermally aged top allows Gibson to replicate the aging process on the cellular level for that legendary Gibson Acoustic vintage sound and appearance.

Other appointments include period-correct tuners for added authenticity a softened fingerboard edge to comfortably fit the contour of your hand. and an enhanced finish created by finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds for smooth VOS finish. Its premium setup utilizes state-of-the-art German-engineered Plek technology to create the finest playing surface possible. It is hand finished for the finest feel and playability. Smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridges helps the wood last longer and maximizes the tonewoods' natural vibrancy.

Includes hardshell case.
