Eric Church Hummingbird Dark
A Hummingbird with a dark side
$3,649
Hand-crafted in Gibson's acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana, Eric Church's groundbreaking new acoustic, Hummingbird Dark, is a result of Church's personal artistic vision. With its translucent Ebony Burst lacquer finish, dark mother of pearl fingerboard inlay, black body binding, and a matching new Hummingbird Dark pickguard, this Limited Edition acoustic makes a powerful statement. Upgraded performance features include a more slender 4'' body depth for a superior tonal balance and an LR Baggs VTC pickup for completely natural acoustic sound reproduction when amplified.
