Vintage Tone, Vintage Feel, Modern Quality

This Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar is in a class by itself in both looks and sound. The distinctive finish and pickguard have set it apart since its inception in the 1960s, and this latest edition of the famous instrument brings the past and present together with player-friendly enhancements. Gibson Acoustic softened the fingerboard edges on this Hummingbird, making it a supremely comfortable instrument to play, and the addition of a thermally aged solid Sitka spruce top lets this modern version sound like a well-loved vintage instrument. You'll love the feel and vibe of the Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird Vintage!

Thermally aged Sitka spruce top

If you've ever had the opportunity to play a great vintage acoustic guitar, you know how magical of an experience it can be. And if you've ever had a chance to strum a vintage Gibson Hummingbird, you know that takes that experience to a whole new level. Now you can get that same inspiring tone out of your new Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird Vintage. Gibson thermally ages the solid Sitka spruce top on the instrument down to a cellular level. This ensures that when you strum your guitar, you'll be greeted with the voice only found on the truly classic vintage acoustic guitars.

Dressed up deadnought style

The Gibson Hummingbird brought a subtle new body style and a bold new look to Gibson's dreadnought family. The Hummingbird was Gibson's first square-shoulder body shape. To emphasize the importance of the new model, Gibson outfitted the original Hummingbird with such eye-catching features as a Cherry Sunburst finish, double parallelogram fingerboard inlays, multi-layered binding, and a pickguard engraved with a hummingbird and blossoms. These appointments are translated perfectly on the new Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird.

Quality construction

As discriminating guitarists immediately discovered, underneath the Hummingbird's flashy ornamentation is a solid guitar. This incarnation of the Hummingbird brings you the same square shoulder design, with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. These tonewoods come together to give the Hummingbird a sweet, warm tonality that sits well in countless musical situations. The guitarists at Sweetwater know how important playability is, and no Hummingbird goes out the door without the famed Plek-assisted setup, offering you great action, spot-on intonation, and a buzz free instrument that is just about perfect.

She Will Take Your Breath Away

Every single time I take this guitar out of the case I forget how good it sounds, I simply don't want to put it down. Very lightweight thanks to the aging process undertaken by Gibson, this guitar is flawless. Huge sound great highs, great lows, and everything in between. The guitar even smells like a million bucks. I'd buy this guitar again in a second and look forward to passing it on to future generations. If your thinking about this guitar you must ignore the price and go for it, you will not be disappointed. Truly the epitome of guitar construction, this guitar has a soul.
