The Hummingbird is not only strikingly beautiful, it's well known for it's rich sound perfect for playing rhythm or lead. No matter how you attack this guitar it sounds lush and full. The combination of Sitka Spruce and Mahogany is a classic, it has a distinctive mid-range that cuts through a band really well, with plenty of high end definition from the spruce. The guitar comes loaded with LR Baggs VTC electronics so you can go from playing at home to the gig without missing a beat.
