Hummingbird of joy and excellence
RokkAri 04.10.2022
I am truly glad I decided to finally go for the real Gibson Hummingbird. The price tag certainly kept me away for long enough, but once I got over that I managed to embrace this purchase and I have no regrets.
The guitar of course looks absolutely beautiful and mine arrived in as perfect condition as one could expect so I really have no complaints. The playability is smooth and setup is comfortable right from the box.
Just for my personal preference I changed the tuner buttons from Kidneys to Tulips but the only thing I will change from now on are the regular string changes. The tone is a bit more than I hoped for, rich and deep with a lot of mid emphasis as the Mahogany promised but not at all losing any necessary top end.
It's size is large but not too large and it produces a lot of volume keeping up nicely with vocals of any volume. It is equally suitable for fingerpicking and strumming. I have 5 other acoustics, most with rosewood or maple back and sides so the Mahogany warmth and rich tone is just a perfect addition to my acoustic guitar arsenal.
The guitar hard case looks great too, sturdy and well fitting.
I can recommend this as a guitarist with 40 years experience of playing and I wish I could have gotten it sooner.
But now that I have it, I just want to play and play, it's very hard to put away.
