Gibson Custom 1960 Hummingbird Fixed Bridge Acoustic Guitar - Heritage Cherry Sunburst

Gibson

The Final Word in 'Birds

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.
