Returns Policy



The Hummingbird is one of Gibson's most elegant acoustic guitars. It first arrived in 1960, and since then, this limited edition model has had many upgrades. Gibson have employed Adirondack red spruce in the guitar's construction, an eminent tonewood that looks and sounds just stunning.


The Hummingbird is well-renowned as being Gibson's first square-shoulder dreadnought acoustic, and this recent limited edition retains that historic shape. This flat top acoustic has an AA-grade Adirondack red spruce body top which is radiused with scalloped bracing; this improves the guitar's ability to resonate, while augmenting its vintage acoustic voice.

The back and sides of this Hummingbird Red Spruce guitar are constructed from mahogany, a popular tonewood known for its sonic warmth. The warm Vintage Cherry Sunburst finish is meticulously done by hand using a finer grit sandpaper, giving the Hummingbird its VOS true vintage visual aesthetic.


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.


Gibson have employed the incredibly flexible LR Baggs VTC pickup system to amplify the Hummingbird Red Spruce. The LR Baggs VTC pickup has a subtle construction and sits just under the saddle. This pickup system is unparalleled in the world of acoustic amplification, working relentlessly alongside the guitar itself to provide the truest acoustic voice. The controls for Volume and Tone sit just beneath the soundhole and are easy to adjust, making sound control incredibly simple.

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 Keystone tuning keys, accurately maintaining the tuning of each string in conjunction with the Tusq saddle.

The Hummingbird Red Spruce is a limited edition model whereby there are only approximately 50 of these worldwide that have been hand-made! This exquisite Vintage Cherry Sunburst acoustic has a real vintage feel and appearance, and its traditional casted Hummingbird pickguard adds to it. Gibson also supply a protective black hardshell case with each purchase as well as a Gibson Acoustic Owner's Manual.
