Hummingbird Ebony
Our Famous Hummingbird dressed in Ebony
$3,149
Since its introduction in 1960, the Hummingbird has been one of Gibson's most enduring models. This month's Hummingbird Ebony Limited Edition features Gibson's famous ebony finish, making it a guitar that's dressed for rock'n'roll, yet still desirable to fans of he original.

Much of the Hummingbird's appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming out first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking leadlines further up the neck, and you can plug it straight in thanks to the L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup system.
