Gibson Hummingbird Standard Dreadnought Acoustic/Electric

Gibson Hummingbird Standard Dreadnought Acoustic/Electric

Simply the world's most distinctive acoustic guitar. Much of the Hummingbird's appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking lead lines. Its spacious mahogany body and sweet, select sitka spruce top are more than capable of nailing down the rhythm in the hands of a rock and roll sideman, or accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today's alternative singer-songwriter.

  • Mother of Pearl Gibson Block Inlay: The headstock logo has been upgraded to the classic Gibson block inlay.
  • New 2016 Truss Rod Cover: New for the 2016 line, custom engraved 2016 truss rod covers
  • Upgraded Pickup: The LR Baggs Element VTC is an award winning undersaddle pickup with unrivaled dynamic range. The sleek and small pickup design features a volume and tone knob inside the sound hole. 
  • Improved Feel: Gibson Acoustic "rolls" the edges of the fingerboard into the curve of the neck profile for a sublimely comfortable playing feel.
  • Enhanced Finish: The use of finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds in a laborious hand-rubbed process results in a smoother high-gloss finish. 
  • Premium Setup: A final setup on our German-engineered Plek system yields uncompromising playability, which is completed by hand for utter perfection. 
  • Smoother Hand Rubbed and Oiled Fingerboards: Deeper penetrating oils hand rubbed into critical wood components yield smoother and more durable fingerboards and bridges.
