Introduced in 1960 as Gibson’s first square-shoulder, 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 a Thermally Aged Sitka spruce top, the 1960 Hummingbird reflects the appearance and performance of those early icons. Featuring a fixed bridge, it's finished with Gibson's new Thin Finish, including a hand-rubbed VOS process.
Gibson has outdone themselves with this 1960 Hummingbird acoustic guitar. To give it the look and tone of a well-aged vintage instrument, Gibson has chosen a thermally-aged Sitka spruce top to go with the mahogany back and sides. This tonewood combo yields a bright and balanced tone with plenty of harmonic complexity and sounds great in practically any musical setting.
And this version of the 1960 Hummingbird features an adjustable saddle, perfect for singer/songwriters that play in alternate tunings and require adjustable intonation. Complete with a 1960s style VOS cherry sunburst finish, this 1960 Hummingbird is an exquisite acoustic guitar. This sounds like the best old guitar you ever had!
