Gibson Hummingbird Square Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1967

Gibson Hummingbird Square Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 1967

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.

❌SOLD❌ Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom Adirondack and Sinker Mahogany Dreadnought, 2014

The Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom is, as the name suggests, and buyer-customized version of the ‘Traditional Dreadnought-Mahogany’ model, in this case with Adirondack Spruce top and Sinker Mahogany back and sides.The ‘Traditional Dreadnought’ dates back to around 1911, when C F Martin built a number of large bodied guitars for the Ditson company. In 1931, with the need for ever-increasing volume, Martin re-launched the design with then now-classic ‘D’ series guitars. This design has been the basis for many other guitar models by many other builders.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D41 Steel String Dreadnought Guitar 2008

❌SOLD❌ Martin D41 Steel String Dreadnought Guitar 2008

The Martin D41 appeared in 1969 as a midpoint between the standard D-28 and the top of the line D-45 dreadnought models. Here we have a very nice Martin D41 built during 2008 at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. It has one one small ding in the top but otherwise is in good overall shape. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish is starting to sink, which is to be expected on a guitar now 11 years old.
