This is my beautiful old classic Gibson Hummingbird guitar. It has six steel strings and it was the first guitar that I bought myself ( I started learning to play when I was 10 years old). It is now a classic ,and on pulling it out of its case I once again admired the craftmanship that went into making this beautiful instrument. I haven’t played it for many years, but my son is learning to play and I have happily handed it over to the next generation. He’s a lucky boy to have such a lovely guitar! In order to take these photographs I had to remove a very 70’s flower power style neck strap LOL!!

Since its release in the 1960’s, the Hummingbird has been luring guitar lovers with its sweet, velvet tone and distinctive appearance. This celebrity guitar, equally loved by blues, country, folk, and rock players, has become a symbol of the passionate ‘60s and has also earned its place in the heart-throbbing music of today. True to its original design, the Early ’60s Hummingbird is handmade with a carefully applied Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish, and its authentic Gibson Hummingbird pickguard. It’s honey-like tone is attributed to its Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, 24-3/4" scale length, and its traditional construction design with includes a dovetail neck-to-body joint, scalloped bracing, and lacquer finish.
