Overview

Of Gibson's many famous designs, the Hummingbird Standard 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, which is usually adorned with a hummingbird and flower theme, as on this 2019 Hummingbird Standard acoustic/electric guitar.

Hummingbird Standard Tonewoods and Bracing

The 2019 Hummingbird Standard acoustic/electric features the reliable combination of a mahogany body with Sitka spruce top and adds a gorgeous Vintage Cherry Sunburst gloss finish. Sitka spruce is the most popular top wood for steel-string acoustic guitars, beloved for both its projection qualities and broad dynamic range. Just as popular, mahogany is desired for its warm timbre, resonance, sustain, and extra boost on the low end. All of this, combined with traditional hand-scalloped X bracing, makes it a solid choice for fingerpicking leads or chord strumming accompaniment.

'50s Rounded Profile Neck

The 2019 Hummingbird Standard has a mahogany neck with a '50s rounded profile. This means it's slightly fatter than more modern neck designs, making it a more comfortable feel for traditionalists. It's also outfitted with a rosewood fingerboard appointed with traditional mother-of-pearl parallelograms. The TUSQ nut and saddle ensures excellent vibration transfer, while nickel Grover Rotomatic tuning machines will help you keep it in tune longer.

L.R. Baggs Electronics

Making it a great choice for gigging performers or singer-songwriters ready to hit the stage, Gibson equipped the 2019 Hummingbird Standard 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.
