Gibson Hummingbird Faded Cherry Sunburst, 2007

The Gibson Hummingbird is one of the most recognizable guitar models with its square-shoulder dreadnought body and distinctive hand-painted pickguard. Introduced in 1960 to compete with Martin’s square shoulder guitars, the Hummingbird debuted at the second highest price for Gibson acoustics just below the J-200. It has been used by many top artists on countless recordings and stages.  The Hummingbird features a Sitka Spruce top paired with tropical Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck. Indian Rosewood is used for the bridge and bound fingerboard.

Immediately popular particularly with singer-songwriters and carrying a distinctive hand-painted pickguard, the Hummingbird was used on many popular recordings, sometimes to surprising results. For example, The Rolling Stones’ ‘Street Fighting Man’ features a Hummingbird recorded on an overdriven Philips cassette recorder, with Charlie Watts using a portable practice kit. Other recordings, like ‘Angie’,  record the Hummingbird more conventionally.
