A Gorgeous Quilt Maple Hummingbird Acoustic-electric

Gibson's Hummingbird has been one of their most recognized - and played - acoustic guitars for over 50 years. For 2014-15 the Hummingbird Quilt acoustic-electric guitar takes the classic square-shoulder dreadnought design and accentuates it with gorgeous quilted maple back and sides. With the hand-rubbed nitro finish, the effect is amazingly holographic and dimensional. And you'll find everything else you'd expect on a Hummingbird, from the tone-enhancing scalloped X-bracing to the Baggs Element pickup for natural plugged-in sound.

Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana

All Hummingbird Quilt acoustic-electric guitars are handcrafted by Gibson in Bozeman, Montana, from premium tonewoods and components. The Hummingbird Quilt features a premium-quality solid Sitka spruce top and gorgeous quilt maple back and sides. The rosewood fingerboard features double-parallelogram inlays as well as a traditional mother-of-pearl crown inlay on the headstock.

LR Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

The Hummingbird Quilt comes with LR Baggs's popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element is a tremendous performer. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and a delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9-volt battery, which is housed inside the guitar in LR Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."

One of the most beloved acoustic guitars for over 50 years

The Hummingbird was Gibson's first 16"-wide dreadnought-style guitar with the extra-wide upper bout, known as the "square shouldered" body shape. To emphasize the importance of the new model, Gibson outfitted the original Hummingbird with such eye-catching features as a cherry sunburst finish (the first on a Gibson Flat Top), double-parallelogram fingerboard inlays, multilayered binding, and a modernized pickguard engraved with a hummingbird and blossoms. As discriminating guitarists immediately discovered, underneath the Hummingbird's flashy ornamentation is a solid, high-quality guitar. You'll feel the same way when you get your hands on the Gibson Hummingbird Quilt.
