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 adorned with a hummingbird and flower theme as it is on this Hummingbird Vintage Limited acoustic/electric guitar.
The 2019 Hummingbird Vintage Limited acoustic/electric features the reliable combination of a mahogany body with Sitka spruce top. The Sitka top is Thermally Aged, a torrefaction process that ages the wood on a cellular level for vintage Gibson tone without affecting its projection qualities. Mahogany, desired for its warm timbre, resonance, sustain, and extra boost on the low end, is used for the body wood. All of this, combined with traditional hand-scalloped X bracing, makes it a solid choice for fingerpicking leads or chord strumming accompaniment. Gibson polishes it off with a thin nitrocellulose finish with a Heritage Cherry Sunburst and hand-rubbed VOS process.
The 2019 Hummingbird Vintage Limited acoustic-electric has a round mahogany neck with standard frets, a classic profile that allows for a wide array of playing styles. It's also outfitted with a rosewood fingerboard appointed with traditional mother-of-pearl parallelograms. The durable bone nut and saddle ensures excellent vibration transfer, while nickel Gotoh Relic tuning machines keep you in tune and add a touch of old-school appeal.
Making it a great choice for gigging performers or singer-songwriters ready to hit the stage, Gibson equipped the 2019 Hummingbird Vintage Limited 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.
Gibson's long lists of storied acoustic instruments are intertwined with some of the greatest movements in music history, and are sought-after by countless artists and musical performers. The Vintage Series adds a new prestigious model, as well as the icons like this Hummingbird, a J-45 Vintage, J-185 Vintage, and a version of the King of the Flat-Tops, SJ-200 Vintage. The Vintage Series are all hand-built using the same tonewoods used to create the originals, including Thermally Aged top wood, historic bracing patterns and relic vintage-style tuners.
