Quality Tonewoods

The Gibson Hummingbird Electro Acoustic 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.

L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

Gibson Acoustic's Hummingbird comes equipped with the popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System from L.R. Baggs, which features a low-profile undersaddle element-or transducer-that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the Soundhole, the Element delivers performance not previously attainable from an undersaddle pickup. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar, and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."
