Gibson / Hummingbird / 1971 / Sunburst / Guitar
A cherry sunburst Hummingbird is probably my favourite Gibson model, and probably the most iconic looking. This example is from 1971, and as you can see from the top it has been played loads, and as soon as you start playing a few chords you'll realise why. The resonance this guitar has, the richness of bass and the warmth of the mid-range and trebles are the reason vintage guitars are so collectable. This one is an absolute beauty and a great example of a 70's vintage being every bit as good as it's 60's equivalents but at a much more affordable price. The guitar has a very solid feel to it, the neck is very comfortable, and the action is just right. It comes in it's original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
