Distinctive 1960s Appearance With Modern Enhancements

From Gibson comes the legendary Hummingbird Acoustic-Electric, a guitar whose distinct look is only surpassed by its unmistakable tone. When Gibson introduced the Hummingbird in 1960, the square shoulder body and unique look made it an instant classic, changing the dreadnought landscape for years to come. With its newest iteration, Gibson has expanded on the classic Hummingbird with an array of modern features making this an ideal instrument for players in any genre.

Balanced and Versatile Tone

Through its history, the Hummingbird has always been applauded for its tonal balance and musical versatility, and the newest release absolutely maintains this character. The mahogany back and sides and solid sitka spruce top creates a rich sustain for deep textures and outstanding blending on stage or in the studio. The distinct square shoulder body means a full tone for those lone singer-songwriters, and the classic mahogany snap means the Hummingbird can stand out against the rowdiest jam sessions. From country and bluegrass to folk and rock, the Hummingbird easily lends its sonic excellence to any style.

Classic Instrument, New Improvements

Every new Hummingbird is handcrafted in Gibson's premier acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana. The classic finish, stylish inlays, and unmistakable pickguard give the Hummingbird its unique flair while Gibson's craftsmanship and commitment to quality make this a guitar that sounds as great as it looks. Not only are the newest Hummingbirds built with the latest advances in quality guitar construction, but they also now include fantastic electronics from LR Baggs, sturdy chrome tuners and stylish double parallelogram inlays, and a custom Gibson case.

Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar

The Gibson Hummingbird offers an unmatched combination of sound and style. With the broad tone of its square shoulder body and its bold visual statement, the Hummingbird has been one of Gibson's most recognizable guitars for over 40 years. The Hummingbird led the way for an entire family of square shoulder models, and the body style became so popular that it was the only dreadnought shape offered by Gibson in the 1970s. The Hummingbird continues today as the leader of Gibson's prestigous square shoulder line, which ranges from the fancier Dove to the affordable Songwriter series and includes historic signature models. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (67 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gibson Hummingbird: A classic from Gibson Montana "
Sound: Sound is not boomy but balanced; the 'highs' are distinct and the lows measured but there in a good way. Sounds good thru an acoustic amp or unplugged. It's not a 'Cannon' but it's not meant to be, and that's totally OK. Feature: It's got an LR Baggs PU system that sounds great. I like the fretboard inlays, color of the Rosewood fretboard and the 'burst' which only Gibson can do well in my book. I like the feel of the neck and the 1 3/4" nut width. Ease of Use: Action was good right out of the case. Plays easily. Quality: It's made well…Gibson has come a long way to keep their quality consistent. Should last a lifetime with proper care in a correct humidified environment. Value: It's kind of pricey but as a blem I saved about $900, which I thought was a great option from paying retail. Manufacturer Support: this is a 'blem' model so the warranty will not apply. I've got a good Luthier so I'm not worried. The Wow Factor: It's got the 'Bling' in classic looks and the sound to support it! Overall: Got this as a Blemished Model. Looked it over very closely and could not find anything wrong with it other than some surface marks on the bottom edge that polished out easily.
Style of Music: folk, folk/rock, contemporary

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "2014 Hummingbird"
Overall: Just got my Hummingbird today, and I am very happy with it.Saved $800 by getting the Blemished version, and can not find anything wrong on this guitar, maybe someone just returned it. Action is a little high as others have stated. Came with all paperwork, extra strings, key fob and pick. Did not give 5 stars for support because I haven't had to use it on any of my 3 Gibsons.
