Introduced in 1960 as Gibson’s first square-shoulder 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 aged Sitka spruce top, the new 2016 Hummingbird Vintage reflects the appearance and performance of those early iconic instruments. Aged top woods were developed with the help of a major university for use on our 2016 Vintage line. This allows us to replicate the aging process on the cellular level for that legendary 1960’s Hummingbird vintage sound and appearance. The 2016 Hummingbird Vintage features relic style gold Gotoh tuners and a hand-rubbed VOS finish for authentic touches.
