The Story of Gibson Acoustic
Gram Parsons: Live at the Avalon Ballroom
Upgraded, Limited True Vintage Hummingbird
True Vintage and Modern Classic
The body’s top is made from solid Sitka spruce, one of the most highly regarded woods for the soundboards of acoustic guitars. Its back and sides are made from solid mahogany, a perennial choice for this application.
The Hummingbird Pro offers outstanding depth, breadth and richness in the vein of the great large-bodied mahogany flat-tops. The solid Sitka spruce top presents excellent clarity and complexity, while the mahogany back and sides contribute warmth and dimension to the tone. All of this, and unsurpassed volume and projection, suit the Hummingbird Pro to a surprisingly wide range of playing styles.
The Hummingbird Pro is designed in the image of the large-bodied, square-shouldered dreadnoughts that Gibson produced from 1960 onward. Its 16 1/4”-wide body has the capacity for full, deep tones and plenty of volume, and its 14th-fret neck/body joint allows excellent upper-fret access, which is further improved with the cutaway option on the Hummingbird Pro EC.
The Hummingbird Pro is finished in an elegant vintage sunburst.
Gibson’s acclaimed acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana, hand finishes these guitars in nitrocellulose lacquer, which is kept to a low build-up and hand buffed to a high sheen. In addition to looking great and aging beautifully, this thin nitrocellulose finish avoids impeding of the guitar’s resonance.
