Gibson has outdone themselves with this 1960 Hummingbird acoustic guitar. To give it the look and tone of a well-aged vintage instrument, Gibson has chosen a thermally-aged Sitka spruce top to go with the mahogany back and sides. This tonewood combo yields a bright and balanced tone with plenty of harmonic complexity, and sounds great in practically any musical setting. And in true Hummingbird fashion, the 1960 Hummingbird features an authentic hand-painted pickguard. Complete with a 1960s style VOS cherry sunburst finish, this 1960 Hummingbird is an exquisite acoustic guitar.

If you've ever had the opportunity to play a great vintage acoustic guitar, you know how magical of an experience it can be. And if you've ever had a chance to strum a true 1960s Gibson Hummingbird, you know it takes that experience to a whole new level. Now you can get that same inspiring tone out of your new Gibson Acoustic 1960 Hummingbird. Gibson thermally ages the solid Sitka spruce top on the instrument down to a cellular level. Strum a chord, and you'll be greeted with the voice only found on the truly classic vintage acoustic guitars.

The Gibson Acoustic 1960 Hummingbird wears a gorgeous 1960s-style natural nitrocellulose lacquer finish, a finish favored by many guitarists. Nitro finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the instrument to vibrate more freely. Nitro finishes not only look and feel authentically vintage — they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.

From their humble beginnings in Kalamazoo, Michigan, back in the late 1800s to present-day Bozeman, Montana, Gibson Acoustic has been making some of the finest acoustic instruments on the planet for generations. When you pick up this limited-edition 1960 Hummingbird, you know you're getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail. Scores of guitarists are Gibson devotees, and like all of the quality instruments Gibson builds, this 1960 Hummingbird was made to sound great and stand the test of time.
