The Gibson Hummingbird has always been one of our favourite gibson acoustic guitars. Normally, larger Dreadnaught/sloped shoulder models normally have tonnes of Bass, which is nice for powerful strumming but they can leave you wanting more when playing fingerstyle, this Hummingbird is capable of delivering fantastic results for both strumming and picking.
Ships with Gibson hard case.
