Gibson has unveiled custom versions of four of its most popular acoustic guitar models: the J-45, Hummingbird, SJ-200 and the Songwriter EC acoustics. Pictured here, the Hummingbird was Gibson’s first square-shoulder acoustic model and has been the choice of musical legends for generations. Now, the Gibson Custom Shop has introduced the new Hummingbird Custom. It builds on the classic Hummingbird features, including a solid sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a 24.75-inch scale mahogany neck with a round profile, and adds Les Paul Custom-inspired cosmetics, including an ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish, multi-ply binding on the top and back, a Les Paul-style peghead with a Custom split diamond inlay in mother of pearl, a bound ebony fretboard with mother of pearl custom block inlays, and gold Grover Rotomatic tuners. It comes equipped with L.R. Baggs Session VTC electronics and a hardshell case.
