Hummingbird Koa Elite
Limited Edition All-Koa Hummingbird
$4,499
One of our most iconic models, hand built with spectacular AAA koa top, back, and sides. Known for its balanced and clear tonal properties the Limited Edition Hummingbird Koa Elite combines the impressive look of koa with one of Gibson's most coveted flat-top models. The headstock sports a matching koa veneer and gold Grover Rotomatics, with a prominent Elite truss rod cover. The fast playing rosewood fretboard is marked by upgraded abalone inlay, matched both on the bridge and headstock inlay.
