Gibson's Hummingbird Original brings together vintage appointments and modern, high-quality build construction, making it one of the most exceptional acoustic-electric guitars you can find. Those who love the Hummingbird aesthetic will be blown away by the guitar's engraved pickguard, double antiqued binding, gold Gotoh Keystone tuners, and of course, the iconic Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish. This square-shoulder dreadnought features mahogany back/sides and a Sitka spruce top, with a hand-rubbed nitrocellulose finish that lets the guitar’s natural tone breathe through, giving you a bold, articulate sound. The Hummingbird Original’s mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard both contribute to a satisfying fretting-hand feel, plus, it’s topped off with mother of pearl parallelogram and crown inlays on the fingerboard and headstock to give it an elegant look and feel. And thanks to LRG Baggs’ Element VTC electronics, you get an undersaddle transducer with an onboard preamp and tucked-away volume control, so that your tone through an amp or PA is always as lively and vivid as it is unplugged. The Hummingbird Original by Gibson is an absolutely stellar acoustic-electric guitar in every facet of its design, and will please both vintage aficionados and modern players with its blend of old and new.
