Description

Details

The Gibson Acoustic 2017 Hummingbird Vintage Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Cherry Sunburst resurrects the cool and sophisticated aesthetic of the original, whilst bringing the classic tone and power to a new generation of guitarists. Since it was released back in the 1960s, many musical pioneers have chosen the Hummingbird as their go-to acoustic, including none other than Keith Richards, which has ensured its worthy place in the annals of folk and rock music. With select modern appointments enhancing the awesome playability of the Hummingbird, this is truly a breath-taking model for all players.

Classic Hummingbird body

The Hummingbird was the first square-shoulder dreadnought that Gibson released, which combined powerful projection with comfortable playability to perfection. The robust design was matched by an elegantly shaped body that has the ability to generate a powerful sonic blast when the strings are strummed hard, but delivers an equally sweet timbre when fingerpicked. Whether you're a solo performer or playing as part of an ensemble, the Hummingbird can confidently hold its own.

The body back and sides are built from solid mahogany, which works beautifully with the dreadnought body shape to generate warmth and power.

The top is crafted using a thermally cured Sitka spruce, which employs a technique that enables Gibson to replicate the aging process with peerless precision. The result is a soundboard that closely replicates the classic Hummingbird in sound and appearance. Radiused scalloped bracing is used to reinforce the top, whilst also optimising projection and resonance. To accentuate the glorious vintage cherry sunburst finish, 6-ply binding has been employed that encircles the tonewood.

Solid rounded neck

A mahogany neck is firmly fitted to the body via the compound dovetail joint for improved resonance. The neck is shaped to a round profile, offering a smooth playing feel. Aboard the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, presenting you with 20 frets and decorated beautifully with Mother-of-Pearl parallelogram inlays.

The neck and fingerboard feel more comfortable than ever thanks to the softened fingerboard edge which is designed to fit perfectly in the hand. Gibson have gone the extra mile to make this limited-edition Hummingbird feel like the best acoustic playing surface, and this is a result of the German-engineered, hand-finished Plek technology used in the construction of all Gibson acoustics.

Hardware and Finish

The lower bout of the Hummingbird is fitted with a traditional belly up rosewood bridge, and like the fingerboard, the bridge is treated with a new finishing oil which gets right into the wood to ensure that it will last even longer. The headstock of the Hummingbird is equipped with gold Gotoh tuning keys, accurately maintaining the tuning of each string in conjunction with the bone saddle. The body is adorned with a vintage pickguard is detailed with a hand painted design, adding to the heavenly finish.

The Gibson Acoustic 2017 Hummingbird Vintage Acoustic Guitar in Vintage Cherry Sunburst is supplied with a protective brown hardshell case with each purchase, as well as a Gibson Acoustic Owner's Manual, and a certificate of authenticity.
