1963 Gibson Hummingbird

Wow this is such an amazing guitar and in such great collectible condition. The finish is so vibrant and fresh with just the lightest of age related checking and a filled strap button hole in the heel of the neck. The gold plate to the tuners is also nice and bright. The guitar is so lightly constructed for a full size cross braced dreadnaught which gives it such a resonant tone with plenty of attack. I’m also a fan of the adjustable bridge on these, as it filters out the bottom end which gives the guitar a nice bouncy even, almost compressed zingy tone with a light bottom end which records perfectly. The neck has the full 43mm nut width, and has a comfortable C shape neck carve. The neck has been re fretted in the past retaining the original nylon nut with slightly larger wire which suits the guitar as it plays perfectly up and down the neck. If all thats not enough add a beautiful 1960’s cherry sunburst finish, 6 ply top binding, parallelogram inlays and of course the hummingbird guard. Comes with its clean original Gibson case with a box of original strings! Perfect!
