Product Description

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.

"A Dream Come True"
Sound: The Hummingbird is a great sounding guitar like they say, it has a very balanced and well blended sound across the sound spectrem of the dreadnought style guitars!!! I am so pleased with mine,and it's very pretty to look at!!! I own a D-45 Martin and it has more substain and volume and more flashto it, but it's rosewood, and the Hummingbird is Mahogany, so you know it will be different in sound. I also own a Martin HD-28 and it's a fantastic guitar too, but the Hummingbird is my favorite for playing while singing because it has the looks and a great sound with good substain and it blends really well for singing it louder than a Taylor but softer and a little less volume than a martin in other words it's a true win,win guitar for me!!! Feature: Came with a deluxe hard shell case (not the less desireable molded plastic) but the classic kind, padded with a plush blue interior (real sharp)and Gibson embosement on the outside lid top. Manufacturer Support: So for there has been no reason to use support!!!
Style of Music: Southern Gospel and Country & Folk & Bluegrass Gospel

"The only family that stayed with me when I was broken,down and out,my beautiful Hummingbird,It kept me alive to see new days."
Sound: If you play in a reflective area or record and play back at your ears,my hummingbird sounds like a baby grand in an empty audatorium with just my bare fingers.A set of finger picks hurts my ears on this guiter.The sound is sharp and accurate as it engulfs your being.There is nothing else in the world when it speaks true. Feature: the materiels are all natural and of the highest quality obtainable. Ease of Use: For me,and I am of medium stature,it took some time finding a seat on this saddle,and it is a mount that needs my attention every day,or it will leave me.Without commitment,it doesent' work,butif I am true to her and play no other,the music is the best of my capability. Quality: Flawless! on the road? how are you on the road? Value: The extra that one pays for a premium American product is soon forgotten with the pleasures and pride given back with each use.However the money wasted on an inferior foreign nockoff is an open wound that will always be remembered! Manufacturer Support: I have not had the pleasure for they did it right the first time. The Wow Factor: It is a perfect balance of design and craftmanship,with only the artist missing.Sex has nothing to do with it,here we have a {Best Friend}This is something given away or passed down,not resold! Overall: See above.
