What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

The Hummingbird is one of those models that comes straight to mind when you close your eyes and think "guitar". The Cherry Sunburst and the immediately recognizable pickguard art call to mind famous guitar players over the last 6 decades! This one in particular has all the loud, strum-ready, power you could hope for while still remaining sensitive and responsive to more finessed playing styles.

About Manufacturer

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
