Made By Hand: The Story of Gibson Acoustic
The headstock of the Hummingbird carries six gold-plated vintage-Kluson™-style Gotoh™ tuners, with an efficient 14:1 turn ratio.
The Hummingbird benefits from the classic look of a traditional three-point engraved Hummingbird pickguard, with the engravings on these 50th Anniversary models painted in gold. Its traditional Gibson "antique bell" truss-rod cover is engraved with "50th Anniversary". It is further adorned in an intricate two-ring, multi-ply soundhole rosette, and its body's top and back are trimmed in decorative multi-ply binding.
A traditional six-pin bridge made from Indian rosewood in Gibson's "belly up" style offers firm string anchoring and outstanding vibrational coupling with the body, while a one-piece bone saddle provides optimum resonance for pure acoustic playing.
The guitar has a vintage body-end strap button.
Gibson's Light Gauge phosphor-bronze acoustic strings, sizes .012-.053, are installed at the factory.
