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.

This guitar is a great buy! Don't kid yourself about what this is. It's not a True Vintage Hummingbird. It's a Songwriter Deluxe EC made out of Mahagony instead of Rosewood, less fancy inlays, slightly (only slightly) lower quality top and neck wood. The Songwriter prices out for 3500, this one at 2400. The sound and tone on this are absolutely fantastic. Equal in quality to more expensive Martin's and Taylor's. In my opinion, a slightly more bluesy, sad voicing, that lends itself to rock, blues, jazz, though bright enough for anything you want an acoustic for. If you check the Martins, to get a similar one all in Mahagony, you are in the 3-4k range. Neck deserves some mention. It's Awesome! I had a Gibson SG, and sold it, because the neck felt exactly the same as the Hummingbird Pro...why go electric if the 'bird feels better....ha, ha. One reviewer on the Guitar Center site complained about the "cheap plastic bridge pins". I was worried it was a scam review trying to sell more accessories. Guess what? I rolled the dice and followed the advice and it's dead on. The difference with bone bridge pins on this to me is incredible. It made the guitar voicing sound fuller and overall guitar volume, NOTICEABLY louder. After some research, turns out the highest end Gibson Songwriters (custom) comes with better pins like this....and for a reason! Beautiful guitar that looks and smells even better in person. Lots of presence.

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.

        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.

            Comments about Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            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

              Comments about Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I always loved the sound of a Hummingbird but never could afford one.
              But one day I was online window shopping my dream gibson, when I found the GC website I found the gibson hummingbird pro Ce " it spoke to me" not having a GC here I was not able to check one out in person :( But that day fate was on my side my mother in law was over at that moment talking to my wife about a shopping trip to the U.S , asking if I needed anything I said strings and one of these hummingbird pro ce to put'em on (joking). 3 days later she came back over said here's your strings and oh here's something to put'em on and brought in this beauty and with one strumm that true gibson sound resanated throughout the body and up the neck I was in love. Since that day Ive play my hummingbird pro ce live through a PA system, recorded in studio an just sitting with friends and it has never failed, this guitar takes all you can throw at it and she just looks at you like what else you got. The tone is crisp and clear with a nice bottom end and the sustain is unreal. The neck is slim like a les Paul and make for fast playing and allows you to glide up and down the neck. The fishman controls allow you to have total control over sound and feed back. The classic hummingbird is a true lady. The hummingbird pro dares you to cross the line and once you do you'll never want to go back.

              This is a great guitar.......great sound , great neck, very warm, and full. I tried more than a few guitars at Guitar Center. This guitar impressed me the most in the price range. I have had Martins, Taylors, Takaminines, and this one is as good or better.It is slightly smaller than the dreadnought and very comfortable to play. Cheers Gibson! The Guitar Center employees are very helpful. Thanks.

              Comments about Gibson 2016 Hummingbird Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              This is the guitar I always wanted and thanks to the the Fishman Loud Box I can finally get a true sounding acoustic tone without fighting the feedback of a microphone. People always tell me how beautiful my guitar is. The neck is perfect for me and the tone is second to none. I got this at a good discount, payed well under 2000.00. For a Gibson thats great!
