Gibson Acoustic Guitars: Hummingbird True Vintage VOS

by Guitar Guru

”A True Classic is ReBorn”

When you look at the Gibson Hummingbird True Vintage VOS Acoustic Guitar it is like stepping back into the 1960’s. You can almost imagine it being played by a flower child replete with flowing hair and ropes of beads.

The yellow-tone finish applied to the solid Sitka spruce top gives it a definite sixties flavor and the engraved hummingbird patterned pickguard gives it a folksy touch.

Built on a square-shouldered dreadnought body, the hummingbird is definitely broad in the shoulders and deep of body, making it a difficult reach for more slightly built players. But the tone of the Hummingbird seems to have been made with upbeat folk music and rock-and-roll in mind. It has a woody, almost windy tone that adapts itself to multiple playing styles, a fact that has made it a favorite of guitarists as diverse as Jimmy Page, Sheryl Crow and Keith Richards.

The Gibson Hummingbird True Vintage is a true classic with a quality that should not be surprising, given that Gibson makes some of the best acoustic guitars available, and even with a $3,999 price tag, the Gibson Hummingbird is a very sweet deal indeed. This is one guitar that every great guitar player should have in their collection.
