What We Think

The True Vintage/Vintage models Gibson is doing these days have got to be the next best thing to the rare, improbably expensive vintage jewels out there on the market.  Authoritative and warm, this guitar literally turned heads with the first strum after our luthier had finished fine tuning the setup.  Comfortable as can be, too--short scale dreadnoughts always end up feeling like the perfect compromise between power and playability.  But you won't be compromising anything by making room for this stellar blast from the past!


Condition: Used, Great

Manufacturer's Description from Gibson Guitars

Introduced in 1960 as Gibson’s first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by the prime movers on the scene. Built with Thermally Cured sitka spruce top, the new 2016 Hummingbird Vintage reflects the appearance and performance of those early iconic instruments.

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.
