First introduced in 1960 serve as a top of the line model alongside the J-200, the Gibson Hummingbird has been one of the most played and sought after acoustic guitars of the last 50 years, remaining a constant in the Gibson catalog since its introduction.
This 1979 Hummingbird is an exceptional example of a later period version of the model. Constructed from a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, the Hummingbird features a beautifully ornate pick guard similar to that of the Dove mode, along with the natural top available as an option post 1963. This guitar features all the late '70s specs you would expect to find, with a belly down rosewood bridge, fixed nylon saddle, block inlays and Grover tuners.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with only the most minimal signs of play wear. It is free of repairs, and is internally and externally original. This guitar also includes a non original hard case.
