Description

Details

The Gibson Acoustic 2018 Hummingbird Guitar in Vintage Cherry Sunburst is a truly wonderful model that offers classic vibes with a modern sentiment. As one would expect, the team at Gibson Acoustic have spared nothing with regard to the build of the 2018 Hummingbird, and you are in for a treat. Whether you're chilling out at home, tracking in the studio, or taking to the stage, the 2018 Hummingbird is exceptionally versatile and ready for anything, anywhere, at any time. With a Gibson hardshell case included, as well as an accessory kit, you have no excuses.

Classic Hummingbird body

Built to the same square-shoulder dreadnought design we've all come to know and love, the 2018 Hummingbird is a powerhouse that combines an impressive output with subtle nuance to perfection. The body is crafted using mahogany, which pairs well with the substantial dreadnought body shape to establish a firm midrange energy that packs a punch. The top is shaped using Sitka spruce, a tonewood that is favoured due to its impressive ability to resonate and project a booming yet expressive voice. Traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing is on hand to reinforce the top whilst allowing it to resonate unimpeded.

The vintage cherry sunburst finish is beautiful, and the accompanying pickguard with ornate Hummingbird inlay is a feast for the eyes. The body is encircled with 6-ply binding and protected by a subtle yet resilient nitrocellulose lacquer. 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 anchored support of the bridge ensures that intonation and sustain rings out for as long as possible.

Solid rounded neck

Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to the round profile that offers a reassuringly substantial yet manageable 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.

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 will be translated transparently.

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.
