Baggs • Special Features: Limited special model • Including: Hardcase • Introduced in 1960 as Gibson’s first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by several prime movers on the scene. In the hands of everyone from Keith Richards to Gram Parsons, it quickly proved itself equally adept at folk, country and rock, and excelled at many of the crossovers genres in between that helped to set the scene for the ’60s. Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this dreadnought, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home strumming out first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking leadlines further up the neck.
