OVERVIEW

Much like the bird it's named after, this guitar will capture your eyes and ears with its natural beauty.

This masterfully hand-crafted classic features stunning quilted maple back and sides and a beautiful, hand- rubbed, bright cherry sunburst finish. The combination of spruce and maple tonewoods produces a bright, balanced sound. The large, square-shouldered body projects a rich tonal range and suprising volume reinforcing the Hummingbird's reputation as a rock 'n' roll player's dream. It also has a dovetail neck-to-body joint, hand-fitted and secured with hide glue to ensure unequalled resonance transfer from strings to body, a radiused body for projection and clarity, and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish allows the tone to mature with age.

Hardshell case included.

        Comments about Gibson Hummingbird Quilt Custom Acoustic Guitar:

        Great balanced sound. Sweet and clear bright highs but still has nice bass and great mids. Great note separation which maple is known for. You will not be disappointed. Plays great out of the box stock settings (which I like) but some will want to lower action at the 12th fret from 3/32 to 2/32. I also have an SJ 200 and J 45.

          Comments about Gibson Hummingbird Quilt Custom Acoustic Guitar:

          Did not buy online, bought localy. However it has such a great feel and playability right out of the box I needed to . Could not put this down all weekend... I own a Clapton strat (9.5 radius V neck) and a custom 63 ES 335 (12 radius) and this was just so much fun and so playable, great sound with the maple, comfortable easy neck.

            Beautifully constructed guitar, it's incredible that these are hand made. The Hummingbird Custom Quilt Top has a great sound, and is perfect for all applications. I love the fact that Gibson doesn't cut into a guitars wood to produce Acoustic Electric examples. A true joy to own and play.
