Introduced in 1960, the "'bird" made a sound quite unlike other dreadnought acoustics. Something magic came together in the combination of the rich mahogany back and sides, the superb bracing pattern, the select spruce top, and the Gibson square shoulder shape (a shape that later found its way to the maple Dove and Country Western models as well). The tone has the characteristic rich, soothing mahogany sound, like a Martin D-18, but with deeper, lush ringing overtones. The Hummingbird is excellent for backing vocals, for ensemble playing, and for recording. The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards calls the Hummingbird "the only flat-top acoustic worth a damn" and "Keef" captured a lot of the greatness of the sound of the classic era 'birds in recordings like the Stones' "Wild Horses" and "Moonlight Mile."
