Gibson Custom Murphy Lab Light Aged 1960 Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar - Heritage Cherry Sunburst


The Final Word in Hummingbirds

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. It features Light Aging by the skilled artisans of the Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab Light Aged finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of light play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era.
