1974 Gibson Hummingbird – £2199

SOLD  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 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 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 no cracks or repairs, just a few dings and light scratches and good honest playwear. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
