      Gibson Hummingbird Pro Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (620876)
Availability:  


A modern edition of one of Gibson's most revered models.

A true legend of acoustic instruments, the Gibson Hummingbird Pro acoustic-electric guitar was first introduced in 1960 as Gibson's earliest square-shoulder dreadnought. Superb for all styles of playing, with a capacity for rich, first-position folk chords and intricate solo playing, the Hummingbird quickly became the icon of the Gibson acoustic line, and a favorite among legends like Gram Parsons and Keith Richards. The Hummingbird acoustic-electric guitar has been one of Gibson Acoustic's most enduring guitars. Includes case.

Body tonewoods (back, sides and top)
The body design of the cutaway Gibson Hummingbird Pro is known as a square shoulder dreadnought that gives you superior access to the upper fingerboard. The top is made from Sitka spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from mahogany, giving the Hummingbird True Vintage a perfectly balanced midrange tone, with unbiased rich lows and clear treble registers. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to dry it out, are two of the most central procedures to Gibson's guitar-building process.

Rosewood fingerboard with traditional binding and split parallelogram inlays
The resilience of rosewood makes the fingerboard on the Gibson Hummingbird Pro acoustic-electric guitar extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The split parallelogram inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require the use of fillers. The acoustic electric guitar's fingerboard also sports traditional binding over the fret ends, which was a staple feature of many classic Gibson acoustics for many years.

Bracing
Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, handmade guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument's sound projection. Gibson Acoustic's Hummingbird Pro cutaway guitar has a single "X" bracing pattern similar to the design inside vintage Gibson J-30s. This traditional pattern delivers a balanced midrange tone, with unbiased lows and rich, clear highs, producing a warm tone that has been a favorite among artists and players alike since the original Gibson Hummingbird's introduction in 1960.

Fishman Prefix Plus-T acoustic pickup system
The Prefix Plus-T features ultra-quiet electronics and Volume, Bass, Treble and semi-parametric Contour controls. In addition to a built-in chromatic tuner, the Prefix Plus-T adds a Brilliance control and a Phase switch and Notch filter to help fight feedback.

Nickel Grover Rotomatic tuners
Grover's original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with abundant style and performance exactly suited for the Gibson Hummingbird Pro acoustic electric guitar. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.

Crown peghead logo
Gibson put the first crown peghead logo on an ES-300 back in 1940, and it has graced the headstocks of many legendary Gibson guitars ever since, including today's Hummingbird Pro.

Rosette
A rosette is the beautiful, handcrafted circle around the soundhole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The rosette on the Gibson Hummingbird Pro is a double-ring rosette, with the main ring consisting of seven-ply binding, and the second ring three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the Hummingbird Pro cutaway acoustic-electric guitar.

  • Disappointed

    As reviewed by Jeff Szalkowski on 1/22/2014

    It was time to shop new and trade in my 15 yr. old Taylor 410ce. I wanted a new sound. I did the same thing when I bought that Taylor 15 yrs. ago. Played the big brands until I fell in love. This Gibson did it for me, the feel, the looks the sound, until I got it home and really played it for 45 minutes. My caluses were tearing off my fingers, my hands were sore and I new this guitar will need a serious set up before I do a 2 hr. gig. While doing some leads way down the neck, some strings and notes were dead. Took it back to GC the tech confirmed defective high frets so I gave it up and ordered another. It arrives 6 days later, play it in the store, didn't like the play, string buzz, well getting it set up anyway, take it home, plug it in to find the electronics were messed up, even the on board tuner didn't work right. I was irritated. Took it back for full refund and decided to be willing to pay an additional $1000 for some better quality. The selection at my GC was not good. Ended up elsewhere with a Taylor Grand Orchestra. This guitar is too good to be true.... jeff s.

  • five stars except the tuner

    As reviewed by Casey Thomas on 6/9/2012

    Great meaty neck, full scale (unlike most Gibsons) fingerboard with a wide nut. The neck is fantastic. Good Gibson sound but not quite like a "real" Hummingbird (this is a reworked Songwriter with Hummingbird mahogany backs and sides). The electronics make for a pretty good and manageable sound (I still prefer my AJ with a Baggs) BUT the tuner is just plain sloppy and pretty hard to read, plus it picks up other instruments so tuning during a song while the band plays on ... forget it.. I've spoken to others with Fishman Prefix Electronics and my tuning experience is not unique. Buy this guitar if you like big necks and Gibsons but keep your Snark or stomp tuner handy.

  • Sounds Amazing!

    As reviewed by Kim Matthews on 3/19/2012

    I got this guitar a few years ago as a graduation gift. Since then I haven't had any problems with it. The sound of this acoustic is amazing! The built in tuner is also very helpful. This is by far one of the best guitars I have ever owned.
