Gibson Hummingbird Cutaway Pro Electro Acoustic Guitar (2017)

Details
The Gibson Hummingbird Cutaway Pro Electro Acoustic Guitar (2017) is both a tribute the late 50s and 60s Hummingbird acoustic, and a high performance guitar that can keep up with the modern player. The vintage sunburst sitka spruce top, combined with high quality mahogany back and sides, delivers incredibly deep, rich tones that give plenty of depth to your sound. Its mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard work together to create detailed complexity in the high end, while also providing a thick and creamy low end. The Hummingbird Pro's Fishman prefix plus-t electronics provide an extra layer of depth to the guitar's amplified tone, allowing the natural tone to shine though while offering a selection of controls to further shape your sound. The bone nut and saddle, rosewood bridge, 60s thin line neck profile, mother of pearl parallelogram inlays, and custom line tortoise pickguard provide a visually stunning look that truly make it a tribute guitar. Delivered in Gibson's hardshell case, the Hummingbird Pro cutaway is the perfect guitar for any fan of the old hummingbird.

Quality Tonewoods

The Gibson Hummingbird Pro features a spacious mahogany body and a sweet, select sitka spruce top. These versatile tonewoods produce rich, deep tones that are ideal for both strumming and finger picking. Spruce also has the added benefit of getting better with age, with each model developing its own unique character over time.

Dreadnought Cutaway Shape

The classic Dreadnought shape produces low-end power, with a snappy midrange and strong, clear treble notes, making the Gibson perfect for flatpickers as well as players who love the traditional guitar shape and tones. Its cutaway body shape also offers easier access to the higher frets.

Nickel Grover Rotomatic Tuners

Grover's original Rotomatic tuners are an engineering marvel, with abundant style and performance. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the Rotomatics deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. All moving parts are cut for exact meshing, eliminating the possibility of slippage. A countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.

Fishman Prefix Plus-T Electronics

The Prefix Plus-T onboard preamp features ultra-quiet electronics along with volume, bass, treble, built-in tuner and semi-parametric contour controls in an easy accessible sidemount. In addition, the Prefix Plus-T offers a brilliance control, phase switch and notch filter to help fight feedback, the built-in chromatic tuner can also be used without plugging in the guitar. Overall, this clever system delivers a robust, lively, and open sound with great dynamics and a delicate high end.
