A Classic Hummingbird

Gibson's Hummingbird has been one of their most recognized - and played - acoustic guitars for over 50 years. The Hummingbird Elite acoustic-electric guitar takes the classic square-shoulder dreadnought design and accentuates it with premium tonewoods and abalone binding. With the hand-rubbed nitro finish, the effect is amazingly holographic and dimensional. And you'll find everything else you'd expect on a Hummingbird, from the tone-enhancing scalloped X-bracing to the Baggs Anthem pickup for natural plugged-in sound.

All Hummingbird Elite acoustic-electric guitars are handcrafted by Gibson in Bozeman, Montana, from premium tonewoods and components. The Hummingbird Elite features a premium-quality solid Sitka spruce top and gorgeous mahogany back and sides. The bound rosewood fingerboard features double-parallelogram inlays as well as a traditional mother-of-pearl crown inlay on the headstock.

LR Baggs Anthem Active Acoustic Pickup System

The Gibson Hummingbird Elite is loaded with a feedback-busting, natural-sounding pickup - the LR Baggs Anthem. There's no modeling and no illusions going on here. The Anthem is strictly a well-designed microphone that picks up your Hummingbird Elite - clean, clear, and full of dynamics. While many guitar mics are way too prone to feedback or just as bad... give you that annoying "boxy sound" when used alone... the LR Baggs Anthem is like having your acoustic sound just "turned up," so it's full of detail, warmth, and personality.

One of the most beloved acoustic guitars for over 50 years

The Hummingbird was Gibson's first 16"-wide dreadnought-style guitar with the extra-wide upper bout, known as the square-shouldered 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 (the first on a Gibson Flat Top), double parallelogram fingerboard inlays, multilayered binding, and a modernized pickguard engraved with a hummingbird and blossoms. As discriminating guitarists immediately discovered, underneath the Hummingbird's flashy ornamentation is a solid, high-quality guitar. You'll feel the same way when you get your hands on the Gibson Hummingbird Elite.

Gibson Hummingbird Elite Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Hummingbird design with mahogany back and sides
  • Exceptional plugged-in tone from LR Baggs Element electronics
  • Split parallelogram inlays on a smooth rosewood fretboard
  • Bound fretboard and abalone binding
  • Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana
  • Hardshell case included
The Gibson Hummingbird Elite will become one of the prized acoustics in your collection!
