Overview

The 2016 Hummingbird Pro Cutaway Acoustic-Electric is a dreadnought style guitar that features a Sitka spruce top, mahogany back, sides and neck, and a rosewood fingerboard. Other features include Grover tuners, split parallelogram inlays, an antique sunburst finish, and a Gibson crown peghead logo. 


This Hummingbird Pro model also features a comprehensive Plek-assisted setup for exceptional action and performance. Speaking of which, the fingerboard edge has been softened to make it fit the contour of your hand and a finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds in the high gloss finish make it easier to slide up and down the neck with ease. The fingerboard and bridge have been hand rubbed and oiled to help them last longer and maximize the rosewood's natural vibrancy. It also has an engraved truss rod cover and L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup so you can enjoy it when your sound needs the bump of amplification.

Includes hardshell case.

Opened the case and the guitar looked great and the finish was flawless. Then I tuned it and played it. I wasn't impressed. Had a little string vibration (needed a little truss rod adjustment). Took it and had a setup done on it. Better, but still only an average sound (nothing special). Then I put a set of Thomastik-Infeld strings on it and "Holy Cow" I love this guitar. Not to advertise someone's strings, but they made a world of difference. A good set of strings turned this guitar from one that I was considering selling or returning into an absolutely awesome guitar that now I wouldn't trade for anything. The sound is amazing.
The string height is a little higher than I'm used to, but then I'm used to an electric guitar, not an acoustic. They're not too high though, and the playability is good without having to lower the action.
I would recommend this guitar to anyone wanting a nice acoustic with a great sound. You will need to do a setup, or get one done, and replace the strings with good quality strings.

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.

        Comments about Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Bought this as an open box and it arrived needing a significant setup, like pretty much all acoustic guitars do. I would guess that this was a return and the original purchaser simply didn't like the feel of it when they played it. Well, a simple sanding down of the saddle - the action was roughly 10/64 at the 12th fret of the low E string - to about 7/64 really made this guitar play great. I also needed to humidify it a little and adjust the truss rod.

        I do love the beefy rounded neck and the 1.67" nut width. All in all an heirloom guitar for me. Sounds nice and even when amplified, and no buzzing whatsoever, even with the lower action. I could probably lower it a bit more but don't feel the need to do so.

          Comments about Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Absolutely happy with the sound coming out of the Gibson Hummingbird Pro, either playing unplugged or plugged direct into a PA. Mahogany back and sides provide a balanced sound with great sustain and resonance. Build quality is superb. Comes with high action, which I personally prefer due to better tone. I am very happy with the neck despite my small hands, but it may be thick for some people, so make sure you spend some time with the guitar before purchase. I have played over 300 acoustic guitars and I would put this in top 10. If you can afford the regular Hummingbird, you may want to go for that instead, but for me, this one plays just as good. If you prefer the sound of rosewood and can afford only one guitar, then Martin or Taylor may be a better choice, depending on your taste. But if you prefer mahogany or can afford a 2nd guitar, I highly recommend this one.

                I was very lucky to acquire this guitar at a very cheap price. It plays like an old Les Paul. The pick up system is outstanding. I have been using my old D28 since 1992 and it is now retired..I beat it to death on about 1000 gigs...so now it rests on my wall and is used sparingly. This Hummingbird (which should not use that name,more like a J45 or something) has every acoustic sound imaginable. I will take better care of this one...Excellent Guitar. Impeccable finish,it's nitro so be careful,it wears real quick,scratches easy. I will be buried with it.

                  Great Gibson tone and decent value for money at $2k. I've seen some comments re quality. I tried 3 before I found one that I liked so glad I never ordered online. Try before you buy, find a good one and you won't be disappointed.

                      The guitar looked like it was finished with a paint brush on the back, (really bad) but it sounded great and felt great. The guitar manager in the Ocean Township New Jersey store was kind of rude and didn't add to well and wouldn't do anything with the finish problem so I didn't buy it from there I will go to another G/C to check one out being that you can only get the Pro from G/C. Bought a lot of guitars from G/C but that makes no difference to them. Bad day
