The Gibson Hummingbird Original Acoustic-Electric Guitar in Heritage Cherry Sunburst is based on the Square Shouldered Legend, coveted for its beautiful burst and etched pickguard, The Hummingbird has long been an object of desire for the singer-song-writer and for anyone who appreciates fine aesthetic details.
The wood combo of Sitka Spruce and Mahogany provides a focused, articulate tone that is perfect to sing along with. Chords sound big, full, and focused compared to the more harmonically complex Rosewood. The Square Shoulder design gives the guitar a strong, powerful look.
The neck is made from mahogany and it’s topped with a nice rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is bound for that classic Gibson look and carries a 12" fingerboard radius. Mother-of-pearl Split Parallelogram Inlays are inlaid into the fingerboard and elevate the look to the next level. The neck and the body meet with a Dovetail Neck Joint for the best in resonance and sustain. 24.75" Scale Length keeps the strings feeling a little slinky and softens their impact on the fingers a bit.
The Hummingbird Original comes loaded with LR Baggs VTC System. This system sounds wonderful and is very easy to dial in thanks to the soundhole mounted controls. No matter what you plug this acoustic guitar into it will sound fantastic!
