The Gibson 2019 Hummingbird Mahogany Avant Garde Electro Guitar in Light Cherry Burst combines vintage style with modern performance for all players to enjoy.

Hummingbird Avant Garde
The 2019 Hummingbird Avant Garde adheres to the classic square-shoulder dreadnought body we've all come to know and love, whilst including a single-cutaway profile to afford comfortable access to the highest frets. The Hummingbird is a model that has been favoured by many a guitar legend due to its sparkling output with an emphatic energy. The body is crafted using mahogany for the back and sides, which establishes a rich midrange timbre. The top is built using Sitka spruce, which is reinforced using traditional hand-scalloped advanced X-bracing to uphold stability whilst bolstering resonance for improved projection.
The body is finished in an eye-catching light cherry burst, which is protected by a coating of nitrocellulose to enable the wood to breathe and retain a vibrant character. Multi-ply binding around the top and single-ply binding around the back complements the finish, whilst the ornate soundhole rosette pairs beautifully with the Hummingbird Avant Garde pickguard.
Durable neck design
Joined to the body via a compound dovetail neck-to-body joint is a steadfast mahogany neck. The generous 25.5-inch scale length emphasises clarity across each and every note, whilst the advanced response neck profile allows the hand to glide along freely. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with mother-of-pearl dot position inlays to guide you in understated finish. The flatter 16-inch fingerboard radius makes it a breeze to fret complex chord shape, shift through scales at speed and perform seamless technique.
The lower bout of the Hummingbird is fitted with a traditional belly up rosewood bridge, which anchors each string securely to guarantee steadfast intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to mini Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, which maintain tuning integrity no matter how enthusiastic your performance is.
L.R. Baggs Element Pickup System
Equipped with the award-winning L.R. Baggs Element 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.
