The Gibson Acoustic 2018 Hummingbird Rosewood Avant Garde Electro Guitar in Antique Natural offers the same classic design with a modern twist to suit purists and newcomers alike. The Gibson Acoustic team have gone all out to ensure that the 2018 Hummingbird stays true to its roots, whilst ensuring that today's performers can settle in on a luxuriously versatile electro acoustic. Wherever your music takes you, thanks to the included Gibson hardshell case, you can get your Hummingbird there in safety and style.

Classic Hummingbird body

The 2018 Hummingbird Avant Garde is shaped to the classic square-shoulder dreadnought body that has ensnared the hearts of many a player. Known for its impressive output, the body is comfortable in the hands whilst guaranteeing a robust and energetic timbre. The body back is crafted using redwood, which gives it a hearty midrange punch with plenty of warmth. The top is built from Sitka spruce, a lightweight tonewood that resonates freely to project tones gleefully. Reinforced using traditional hand scalloped X-bracing, you can rest assured that your guitar will remain in top condition no matter how enthusiastically you perform.

The antique natural finish is subtle yet beautiful, and complemented beautifully by the accompanying tortoise pickguard. Multi-ply binding accentuates the contrast between the top and sides, whilst a resilient nitrocellulose lacquer coating prevents blemishes from affecting the tonewoods.

Solid neck design

Connected to the body via a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint, is a sturdy and reliable mahogany neck. Shaped to Gibson's advanced response profile, the feel and finish encourages a smooth playing experience from nut to heel. Married to the neck is a gorgeous richlite fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with mother-of-pearl single parallelogram position inlays to guide your way. Thanks to the body's single-cutaway shape, your fretting hand is offered unimpeded access to the highest of frets.

Gig-ready hardware

The lower bout of the Hummingbird is fitted with a modern belly-down richlite bridge, which anchors each string securely to guarantee steadfast intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to mini Grover tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout each performance. The fit and finish come together perfectly to ensure that whether you're on an intimate stage or playing to a festival crowd, you can be confident in the Hummingbird Avant Garde's ability to stand up to any test.

L.R. Baggs Element VTC Pickup System

Equipped with the award-winning L.R. Baggs Element VTC electronics' system, you can take to the stage in effortless style and plug directly into the amp or P.A. of your choosing, safe in the knowledge that the acoustic character of your guitar's timbre will be translated transparently. From enthusiastic strumming to intricate hybrid picking or elaborate two-hand tapping, the guitar and electronics work together seamlessly to ensure your output is as flawless as your playing.

The pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp are controlled using the soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls. The built-in low frequency crossover prevents any unwanted low-end grunt from over-powering your signal, and allows the natural timbre of the Hummingbird to sing with the utmost clarity.

Included accessories

As noted above, the Gibson Acoustic 2018 Hummingbird Rosewood Avant Garde Electro Guitar in Antique Natural comes with a Gibson hardshell case, so that you can get out and performing as soon as it arrives.
