Gibson

Description

Introduced in 1960 as Gibson’s first square-shoulder, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and it was rapidly embraced by the prime movers on the scene. Built with a Thermally Aged Sitka spruce top, the 1960 Gibson Hummingbird reflects the appearance and performance of those early icons. Featuring an adjustable saddle, it's finished with Gibson's Thin Finish, including a hand-rubbed VOS process.
