Who plays a Gibson Hummingbird?
Famous Gibson Hummingbird players include Jack White, Dave Grohl, Billie Joe Armstrong, Jonny Greenwood, Thom Yorke, Sheryl Crow, Chris Cornell, Lenny Kravitz, the Edge, Keith Richards - the list goes on!
When it comes to choosing the last acoustic guitar you'll ever need, and the only guitar you're likely to want to play ever again, the Gibson Hummingbird will undoubtedly be on that list for many players.
The Gibson Hummingbird has been lauded for its incredible sound, versatility and of course it's signature looks with custom scratchplate. There simply is no other guitar quite like it.
If you need an acoustic guitar with a greater warmth, longer lasting sustain and something that will only sound better with each day it ages, then the Gibson Hummingbird needs to be on your list of "must-try" electro acoustics.
You have a Solid Sitka Spruce Top and Mahogany back and sides for that articulate snap, but warm and rich sustain.
The inclusion of traditional Hand-Scalloped X-Bracing ensures that each note sings out loud and clear whether you're fingerpicking or playing the big chords. This makes it one of the best all-rounder electro-acoustic guitars.
In terms of aesthetics and looks, the multi-Ply Binding on Both Top and Back and that classic iconic Hummingbird scratchplate finish off the guitar nicely, especially when combined with the Vintage Cherry Sunburst finish.
The compound dovetail Mahogany Neck with Round Profile and Rosewood Fretboard provide greater sustain and a more substantial grip for confidence when playing your acoustic guitar.
Professional level appointments such as a TUSQ Nut and Saddle, Rosewood Bridge, Grover Rotomatic Tuners with Kidney Buttons are welcome additions.
Finally, the LR Baggs Electronics system allows you to retain all the lush qualities of the tonewoods when plugged into an amplifier or when sent straight to a DI box.
One of the best expensive acoustic guitars on the planet and iconic model in its own right.
