Square Shoulder Guitars

When the Gibson Hummingbird was first introduced in 1960, it quickly became popular among country strummers and rockers alike. This square shoulder guitar was even the preferred acoustic dreadnought of Keith Richards, who used it on many iconic Rolling Stones albums in the early '70s. Today, square shoulder guitars like the Hummingbird are still favored for their unique feel and sweet, appealing tone. In fact, Gibson's new line of square shoulder guitars includes a wide range of eye-catching beauties that would put a smile on the face of any six-string enthusiast.

So which square shoulder dreadnought is right for you? It's really a matter of personal preference, but there's a good reason why the Hummingbird is considered a timeless classic, so we'll suggest checking out the Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Square Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Electric. Boasting a gorgeous Heritage Cherry finish, a spacious mahogany body and select Sitka spruce top, this masterpiece delivers deep, rich tones that are clearly amplified by the L.R. Baggs VTC pickup.

Or, maybe you're a performing singer-songwriter who prefers the feel of a cutaway - in which case, the Gibson 2016 Songwriter Progressive Square Shoulder Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic Electric is for you. Boasting G FORCE tuners for easy access to standard and alternate tunings and a titanium tune-o-matic saddle for fast playing action and easy-to-adjust string height, this cutaway acoustic-electric is a handmade work-of-art for today's progressive player. Additionally, its soaring sound is highlighted only further by the L.R. Baggs Lyrics pickup system, and the smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard is a treat on the eyes as much as it is on the hands.

And these two square shoulder guitars were only mentioned to serve as a taste of what awaits you here. For those who prefer a hummingbird minus the pickup system, look no further than the Gibson 2016 Hummingbird True Vintage Square Shoulder Dreadnought. Or to really make your live performance stand out visibly, go with the 2016 Limited Edition Doves in Flight Square Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric. Whatever you choose, one thing is certain: Gibson has never lost their talent for designing square shoulder guitars that look, play and sound like nothing else.
