This is a really wonderful guitar. I've never had a Gibson acoustic and had my eye on this model for a while. I have several Martins and a couple of Guilds. I've also had some Taylors in the past and I have a few lower end guitars (Yamaha, Ibanez, Washburn) that I use as travel guitars or beaters. This Hummingbird arrived and was flawless. There are certain issues with acoustics that I always look for and this passed every test. No fret buzz at all, a nice boomy sound and no flaws in the finish or any other problems. It looks really nice as well. It's a bit lighter than the pictures show which was a good thing. i was hoping for more of the faded, honey-like color that I've seen in stores and other photos. I didn't really want a deep cherry color, so I was very happy when I received it and the color was more orange/honey and more subtle than the pictures can show. It plays really well and I'm very happy with it. Another one for the collection!!
