1973 Gibson Hummingbird – £1999
ON HOLD This is one of the best sounding 70’s Hummingbirds I’ve had for quite a while, and visually it has to be my favourite model. The rich honey coloured top contrasting beautifully with the Hummingbird pickguard, and the Mahogany back and sides are highly figured. This guitar has all the unmistakable characteristics of one of Gibson’s flagship dreadnoughts, which makes them sound so familiar. When you start playing it’s reminiscent of so many famous recordings – mellow, smooth, warm and rich. The bound neck makes it feel very easy to play, the action is comfortable, and the neck is quite full feeling. The guitar is in excellent condition, with just one repaired crack by the end pin, and just a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar has an active LR Baggs pickup fitted, with volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original hard case.
