Since its introduction in 1960 as Gibson's first square-shouldered acoustic, the Hummingbird has become a staple for guitarists worldwide.

Now, players can experience the same enchanting sound and feel of the original models with the Gibson 1960 Hummingbird, a fantastic guitar that marries vintage designs with modern enhancements.
The 1960 Hummingbird features a mahogany body topped with a thermally aged Sitka spruce soundboard.
