The hummingbird is known for its agility, and the Hummingbird is no different. At home in the hands of flat-pickers, rhythm players, leaders, you name it–the hummingbird can fly. Hand-built with mahogany back and sides and a sitka spruce top with traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing, the square shoulder Gibson Hummingbird's deep, luscious tones are enough to make any six-stringer come calling. Finish it off with an LR Baggs VTC, mother-of-pearl parallelograms and iconic Hummingbird pickguard and it’s a must-own acoustic, today and tomorrow.
About Gibson Montana:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.
“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... or they become legend.” So wrote Montana author Jim Harrison, perhaps about the master luthiers of Gibson Montana, which produces all of Gibson’s acoustic guitars.
