Gibson Hummingbird Original - Heritage Cherry Sunburst with Hard Shell Case

The Gibson Hummingbird Original: One of Gibson's Most Distinctive Acoustic Instruments

The unmistakable Gibson Hummingbird is followed by the masses as one of the most remarkable acoustic guitars ever built. The new Hummingbird Original blends vintage appointments and today's modern high-quality build construction. Outfitted with gold Gotoh Keystone tuners, double antiqued binding, a traditional Hummingbird truss rod cover, and a bone nut and saddle, this guitar is a true masterpiece for both collectors and performers.

Superior Craftsmanship and Materials

The body of the Hummingbird Original is crafted in the iconic Hummingbird shape, featuring a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. This combination of tonewoods offers a warm, balanced sound with rich harmonics. The traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing ensures structural integrity while enhancing the guitar’s tonal response. The multi-ply top and back binding add to the guitar’s vintage aesthetic, all finished in a stunning nitrocellulose lacquer that allows the wood to breathe and age gracefully.

Comfortable and Playable Neck

The neck of the Hummingbird Original is made from mahogany and features a round profile, providing a comfortable grip for extended playing sessions. The rosewood fingerboard with a 12-inch radius ensures smooth playability, while the 24.75-inch scale length offers a familiar feel for Gibson enthusiasts. The fingerboard is adorned with 20 standard frets and mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays, adding a touch of elegance. The bone nut, with a width of 1.725 inches, contributes to the guitar's superior tuning stability and tone.

Premium Hardware and Electronics

This guitar is equipped with gold-plated Gotoh Keystone tuners, ensuring precise and stable tuning. The traditional belly-up bridge with a bone saddle enhances the guitar's sustain and tonal clarity. The .060'' Hummingbird pickguard not only protects the top but also adds to the guitar’s iconic look. The Tusq bridge pins and the traditional Hummingbird truss rod cover complete the hardware setup. For amplified performances, the Hummingbird Original features an LR Baggs VTC pickup system with volume and tone controls, providing natural-sounding acoustic tones when plugged in.
