Gibson Hummingbird Standard Vintage Sunburst Electro Acoustic Guitar

Here at Rimmers Music we're very proud to present for sale this amazing Gibson Hummingbird Standard which is finished in Vintage Sunburst. Originally introduced in 1960 this was at the time Gibson's second-most expensive guitar, behind the J-200 until the introduction of the Gibson Dove in 1962.  Immediately recognisable, the Hummingbird features the ornately decorated scratch plate, bold split block inlays and fantastic tone thanks to its solid mahogany and solid spruce construction.

More about the Gibson Hummingbird Standard Vintage Sunburst Electro Acoustic Guitar,
Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. No matter how you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for picking lead lines. Its spacious mahogany body and sweet, select Sitka spruce top are more than capable of nailing down the rhythm in the hands of a rock and roll sideman or accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today’s alternative singer-songwriter. The Hummingbird's mahogany neck has a comfortable rounded profile and mother of pearl parallelogram inlays. This 'bird has a TUSQ® nut, saddle, and bridge pins, Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, the iconic Hummingbird graphics on the pickguard, and is equipped with LR Baggs® VTC electronics, so it's ready to plug in on stage or in the studio. A Gibson hardshell case is included.
