Classic Gibson Hummingbird:
With the Hummingbird Modern Mahogany, Gibson employs the same vintage construction methods used on the first 1960 Hummingbird. With a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, the Hummingbird AG Mahogany produces a rich, varied tone that has made it a favorite among players like Keith Richards and Brian May. The solid midrange and treble tones that made this guitar famous are also supported by an ever-present lower tone that comes from expert design and materials. In short, this acoustic touches on all the tonal shades of color with every strum. An LR Baggs Element pickup system also provides outstanding amplified tone when plugged in. Acoustic players have fallen in love with the unique sound of the Hummingbird Modern Mahogany.
A classic neck for great playability:
Upon its landing in 1960, the Gibson Hummingbird made a lasting impression for its neck design and overall playability. With the Hummingbird Modern Mahogany, you get that same classic neck with modern updates. The mahogany neck features a new Advanced Response profile for even more comfort and playability. A genuine rosewood fingerboard further enhances the feel and response of a stellar neck and fretboard pairing. And as with all Gibson guitars, the Hummingbird Mahogany AG receives Gibson’s Plek treatment to ensure uniform fret contour and placement, eliminating string buzz and delivering perfect playability.
Exquisite tonewoods and gorgeous design:
Once you play a Hummingbird and hear it sing, you will understand why this guitar has earned the iconic status it holds. Many players of the Hummingbird maintain that its tonal signature is truly one of a kind. Covering low, midrange, and treble in nearly equal parts, the Hummingbird AG Mahogany is a popular choice among a variety of players across genres. It sounds great strummed wide open with a pick or gently plucked with the fingers, making it a solid choice for country, bluegrass, folk, or rock ‘n’ roll.
