Description

The Hummingbird was Gibson’s first square-shoulder dreadnought, similar to the dreadnoughts produced by C.F. Martin & Company. Introduced in 1960, the Hummingbird was Gibson’s second-most expensive acoustic guitar, behind the Gibson J-200, until the introduction of the Gibson Dove in 1962, (a blend between the Hummingbird and the J-200.) and has remained in production ever since. In 2000 the Gibson Hummingbird was the winner of Acoustic Guitar’s Player’s Choice Award for the Dreadnought Category, and was described thus: “The Hummingbird has a very wide range of sound, from gutsy and loud, to sweet and soft. Superb for all styles of playing, whether just chording or playing intricate solos.”

This guitar was given to Music Biz mogul Tommy Mottola as a gift. It is in unplayed condition but did suffer a humidity crack behind the bridge. The crack is repaired and closed tight and very close to being undetectable and needs no further attention.
