The Gibson 2019 Hummingbird Electro Acoustic in Vintage Cherry Sunburst is a stunning rendition of the model that has been adopted by notable players that include Keith Richards, Brian Jones, John McLaughlin and Chris Cornell, since its introduction back in 1960. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep it safe at home and on the move, whilst a Gibson accessory kit allows you to keep everything in pristine condition.
Classic Hummingbird body
The 2019 Hummingbird electro acoustic is shaped to the classic square-shoulder dreadnought body profile, giving it a fantastic combination of comfortability and tonal power. The body is built using mahogany, which generates a stirring mid to low-end tonal foundation. Paired with this is a glorious Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing that allows it to resonate unimpeded whilst preventing buckling and warping over time. The Gibson 2019 Hummingbird is equipped with a traditional belly up rosewood bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
The body has been treated to a vintage cherry sunburst paintjob, which is protected by nitrocellulose to enable the wood to breathe and resonate. Paired with this is an ornate Hummingbird pickguard, which complements the finish beautifully. Multi-ply binding around the top and back of the guitar adds an understated touch, as does the multi-ply soundhole rosette.
Supportive mahogany neck
Joined to the body is a sturdy solid mahogany neck, which is fitted using a splendid compound dovetail neck-to-body joint. The round profile allows your hand to get to grips with neck for a substantial yet easily navigable feel. At the top of the neck you'll find a Tusq nut, which works alongside Grover Rotomatic tuning machines with kidney buttons that uphold tuning integrity dutifully. Married to the neck is a sublime rosewood fingerboard that is adorned with mother of pearl parallelogram position inlays. The generous 24.75-inch scale length emphasises a meatier midrange energy and works beautifully with the 12-inch fingerboard radius to deliver the Hummingbird's enviably comfortable feel.
L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system
The 2019 Hummingbird electro acoustic is equipped with the award-winning L.R. Baggs VTC electronics' system, which allows you to take to the stage in confidence. The unique design of L.R. Baggs' system allows you to attenuate the tone of your guitar with incredible dexterity so that whether it’s a small local gig or a festival stage, your tone sounds immaculate every time.
