1968 Gibson Hummingbird – £4499

SOLD  This is one of the best sounding Hummingbirds I’ve had for quite a while, and visually it has to be my favourite model. The cherry sunburst is still vivid, with fantastic looking lacquer checking, and the Mahogany back and sides are beautifully figured. This guitar has all the unmistakable characteristics of a 60’s Gibson dreadnought which makes them sound so familiar, hauntingly reminiscent of so many of the great 60’s recordings. The bound neck makes it feel very easy to play, the action is set just right, and unlike a lot of late 60’s examples the neck is quite full feeling. The guitar is in excellent condition, with no cracks or repairs, just a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. There’s a number 2 under the serial number, suggesting there was a flaw in the original finish, but 55 years on it’s hard to tell. The guitar has a transducer pickup fitted, and comes in a non original vintage hard case.
