Manufacturer's Description from Gibson Guitars

A guitar at the leading edge of the acoustic folk boom of the late ’50s and ’60s, the Hummingbird was also at the forefront of an entirely new breed of flat-top dreadnought for Gibson. Introduced in 1960 by a company long famous for its “round-shouldered” dreadnoughts such as the J-45 and Southern Jumbo, this big, 16 1/4”-wide square-shouldered dreadnought hit the competition straight on, and became an instant classic in the process. 
 
Long a favorite of frontmen and singer-songwriters, equally at home pounding out the rhythm amid a rockin’ electric band or taking the lead in an acoustic context, the Hummingbird has proven surprisingly versatile, and has set the pace at the center of several notable country, rock, blues and folk acts.

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.
