Product Details

"Gibson early Hummingbird playing the supreme rock sound"

Gibson / 1961 Hummingbird Cherry Sunburst

Hummingbird, the best performance that has been played in over 60 years, has arrived.

Gibson's first square shoulder model, Hummingbird, was released in 1960.
This innovative look and dynamic sound will lead to the overwhelming support of the musicians at the time, leading to the announcement of Square Shoulder, Dove ('62).

This time, the 1961 individual, which was in the early days of Hummingbird, was in stock. The Hummingbird was shipped by 1962, with 1254 bottles, which was less than the number produced in the year in 1963, and the early individuals are very rare items that are rarely available at present. 。

The body top is a spruce and a played appearance, but the grain itself is clogged and you can see that it uses fine and fine quality materials.
The body side back is a mahogany, a thick and brave appearance.
It is a long -scale square shoulder model using a rare material Hakaranda for fingerboard/bridge.

It is unique at this time that the pattern dug in the large pickguard is yellow. You can see that the lacquer paint is thin and thin, and it is well familiar with the wood.

Frets, nuts, and pegs have been replaced.
The peg is the Crewson Double Line in the late 1960s.
There is a small crack on the first string side at the top of the sound hall, but it is reinforced on the back and maintained. There is no problem on you.

In addition, regarding the condition of neck and Kibe, all parts are checked and adjusted by acoustic guitar professionals, and all parts are good.
In addition, the neck is adjusted straight and has no vibration or clogged sound, and the string height on the 12th fret is set to an optimal state of 2.5 mm on the 6th string side and about 2.0 mm on the first string side.

It is an individual who repeats maintenance and understands that it has been used carefully.
He / she plays the finest vintage tone that is rugged and crisp.
Even if you usually use a round shoulder, you can understand the charm of this individual.
