Overview

Since 1960, the Gibson Hummingbird has been one of the most popular square shoulder dreadnought acoustic guitar designs, gracing the stage in the arms of musicians from all genres. Keith Richards (The Rolling Stones), Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Shuggie Otis, Gillian Welch, Eric Church and Sheryl Crow are just a few of the many singer/songwriters/performers who have let their songs take flight on the strings of a Hummingbird. The first square-shoulder dreadnought Gibson ever produced, the Hummingbird has been celebrated over the years for its versatility, even with variants in tonewoods or the addition of a cutaway and electronics, beloved for its ability to handle the softest passage just as easily as holding its own in an electric set.
