Gibson 1960 Hummingbird Murphy Lab Light Age - Heritage Cherry Sunburst

Back to List
Call/Email For Pricing


When Gibson produced their first square-shouldered flat-top in the early 1960s (to compete with Martin’s popular-but-plain dreadnoughts), they took a decidedly flashier approach. The result was the Hummingbird, with big sound and stageworthy looks—perfect for a new generation of rockers and rhinestone-country artists.

Through various iterations, the distinctive Hummingbird has been in production ever since. Built with a thermally aged Sitka spruce top and mahogany sides and back for a beefy, balanced tone. The 1960 Hummingbird reflects the appearance and performance of those early icons. It features the Murphy Lab's Light Aging. The Murphy Lab Light Aged finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era. 

Additional features include a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with split-parallelogram inlays, etched pickguard, and Gotoh tuners with Keystone buttons. A hardshell case is included.
