Attention, all acoustic adventurers traversing the Wildwoodiverse! We are proud to present the latest addition to Gibson's Avant Garde series: the Hummingbird Mahogany. The Avant Garde series poses the question "Can a guitar be high art AND a killer player?" Spend one minute with the Avant Garde Hummingbird Mahogany and you'll know that the answer is a resounding "YES!"
As its name implies, the Hummingbird Mahogany utilizes one of the most classic tonewood combinations of all time: Sitka spruce and mahogany. Together, these two beloved woods produce a clear, warm tone with superb balance and a midrange-forward voice. The Hummingbird Mahogany has a little bit of a twist in its sonic cocktail, though. Because it has a slimmer body, this beautiful 'bird has a more focused, crisper tone, and it's a bit easier to max it out and pull sparkling overtones out of the top with a heavy right-hand attack. This, along with the hand-scalloped bracing, makes for quite a dynamic playing experience. Not to mention, the smaller body makes it quite comfortable to play for long periods of time!
