The Gibson Acoustic 2017 Hummingbird Limited Edition Figured Mahogany Electro Acoustic Guitar in Heritage Cherry Sunburst offers up a divine instrument that combines the best of vintage style and modern-day appointments. Catering to guitar players who yearn for a classic Hummingbird but also want the option to amplify their guitar when playing to a large audience, this awesome guitar is perfect for those who like to play loud and proud.
Classic Hummingbird body
Noted as the first square-shoulder dreadnought that Gibson released, the Hummingbird offers a sublime marriage of qualities that allows the guitar to be at once versatile and powerful. With a generous depth that develops a bountiful energy, the hand-built figured mahogany body generates an enviable warmth that envelopes and soothes the soul. Paired with the mahogany is a crisp Sitka spruce top that is reinforced using scalloped bracing to optimise projection and resonance. Whether strumming hard with a pick or elegantly fingerpicking, the Hummingbird sings sweetly.
The body is finished in a heritage cherry sunburst, which is encircled with 6-ply binding and protected by a subtle yet resilient smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer. The top is adorned with the signature tortoise Hummingbird design pickguard, which itself is a breath-taking work of art. 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.
Solid rounded neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to the round profile that offers a reassuringly substantial feel in the hand. Using a compound dovetail joint reinforced by hot hide glue, the neck is as solid as they come. At the top of the neck you'll find a Tusq nut, which works alongside gold Grover Keystone tuning machines that upholds tuning integrity and string tension immaculately. Paired with the neck is a heavenly rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are decorated with mother of pearl parallelogram position inlays to guide your way in style.
The Gibson Acoustic 2017 Hummingbird Limited Edition Figured Mahogany is equipped with an upgraded, award-winning L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system. The Anthem pickup delivers warm, balanced tones that transparently translates the natural acoustic timbre of the guitar exquisitely, whilst doing a fantastic job of suppressing any potential unwanted feedback. Thanks to the unique TRU.MIC hardware, which is mounted beneath the bridge plate, the Anthem produces a sparkling output that is infused with absolute clarity.
The Gibson Acoustic 2017 Hummingbird Limited Edition Figured Mahogany Electro Acoustic Guitar in Heritage Cherry Sunburst is supplied with a protective black hardshell case with each purchase, as well as a Gibson Acoustic Owner's Manual.
