Gibson Hummingbird Standard - Vintage Sunburst with Hard Shell Case

Gibson Hummingbird Standard: The Distinctive Hummingbird

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.

Iconic Design and Comfortable Playability

The Hummingbird's mahogany neck has a comfortable rounded profile and mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays. This iconic guitar also features a TUSQ® nut, saddle, and bridge pins, Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, and the distinctive Hummingbird™ graphics on the pickguard. These elements come together to create a guitar that is not only visually stunning but also incredibly comfortable to play.

Premium Tonewoods and Craftsmanship

Crafted with a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the Gibson Hummingbird Standard produces a rich, balanced tone that is perfect for a variety of musical styles. The guitar’s 5-ply top binding and 3-ply back binding, along with a single-ply fingerboard binding, add a touch of elegance to its appearance. The gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish enhances the natural beauty of the wood while providing durability.

Stage-Ready Electronics

Equipped with LR Baggs® VTC electronics, the Hummingbird Standard is ready to plug in on stage or in the studio. The under-saddle pickup and soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls ensure you can achieve the perfect amplified sound with ease. Whether you’re performing live or recording, this guitar delivers exceptional tonal quality.
