Just in. A review will follow soon.
From the Gibson website:
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.
Crafted with solid-mahogany back and sides, solid-Sitka spruce top, and one-piece mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, the Hummingbird Pro packs premier tonewoods that mirror those of its predecessor from 1960. A scalloped advanced X-brace, hide-glued dovetail neck joint, and bone nut keep it all ringing, rich and resonant, while an L.R. Baggs Element acoustic pickup with volume control takes it all to a bigger audience when you need to plug in and be heard.
Meanwhile, a vintage-sunburst finish in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, marquetry back stripe, multi-ply top binding and rosette, split-parallelogram inlays, and double-point tortoiseshell pickguard keep it all looking as sweet and sultry as the vintage Hummingbird that inspired it."
This guitar includes its original hardshell case. (used)
