Limited edition lefty model based on a popular original from the 1960s with L.R. Baggs' technology.
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' 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' appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flattop, 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 solid mahogany body and sweet, solid 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' acclaimed acoustic facility in Bozeman, MT, today' 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.
