Overview

Of Gibson's many famous designs, the Hummingbird may be one of the most recognizable. The first square shoulder dreadnought Gibson ever produced, it has been turning heads since 1960. It's known not only for a wide-ranging sound that can adapt to any style, but also for its uniquely shaped pickguard, usually adorned with a hummingbird and flower theme. On this Hummingbird Modern acoustic/electric guitar, Gibson stripped away the pickguard art, but gave it a Venetian cutaway and vintage-inspired Walnut Burst nitrocellulose finish.

2019 Hummingbird Modern Tonewoods and Bracing

For the 2019 Hummingbird Modern, Gibson chose a walnut body paired with a Sitka spruce top. Sitka spruce is the most popular top wood for steel-string acoustic guitars, beloved for both its projection qualities and broad dynamic range. Walnut, on the other hand, is used much more sparingly. Its lively woodgrain adds plenty of visual charm, and sonically offers you a mix of the bell-like ring of maple, dark warmth of rosewood and woody nuances of mahogany. All of this, combined with traditional hand-scalloped Advanced X bracing, makes it a solid choice for any player.

Advanced Response Neck

Adding to the accessibility and playability of the cutaway, the Hummingbird Modern comes with an Advanced Response two-piece maple neck. Outfitted with a Richlite fingerboard this neck design is slimmer, with a flatter fingerboard, making it ideal for electric players transitioning to acoustic. A TUSQ nut and saddle ensures excellent transfer, while nickel Mini Grover Rotomatic tuning machines will help you keep it in tune longer.

L.R. Baggs Electronics

To make it even more desirable for gigging singer/songwriters, Gibson equipped this limited-run Hummingbird acoustic/electric with an L.R. Baggs VTC soundhole-mounted pickup. With worry-free performance, it gives you discrete, easy-to-use volume and tone controls to hone in your sound.

Modern Series

With a strategic blend of time-tested, hand-built construction methods and forward-thinking design, the Modern models embody the foundation of a Gibson—a domed top and back, hand-fitted dovetail neck joint, hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish and artistic craftsmanship. The Avant Garde models add increased comfort and playability with a new neck profile, slimmer body and flatter fingerboard.
