Gibson Hummingbird Vintage

Call/Email to Purchase

Hummingbird Vintage  -  Heritage Cherry Sunburst TV

When Gibson produced their first square-shouldered flat-top in 1960 (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.

The Hummingbird Vintage offers the look, feel and sound of one of those original early-’60s beauties. It features a thermally-aged sitka spruce top with heritage cherry-sunburst nitrocellulose finish—thin and hand-rubbed for an ultra-light, breathable look and feel. Mahogany sides and back offer a warm, balanced tone. 

Additional features include a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with split-parallelogram inlays, etched Hummingbird pickguard, bone nut and saddle, and Gotoh Relic tuners. A hardshell case is included.
