1977 Gibson Hummingbird Custom
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-11-12)
Price : US $1,203.
This is a beautiful guitar made in Kalamazoo, MI in 1977. It is the custom model so it has a natural top as opposed to the more common sunburst.
The finish has some checking and a few light pick scratches as you would expect from a 30 year old guitar, but over all it looks, sounds and plays beautifully.
This guitar has an amazingly pure and balanced tone and it is extremely responsive to playing dynamics. It also has a really nice B-Band under-the-saddle pickup minimally invasively installed.

I am the original owner of a 77' Gibson Hummingbird guitar that is breadwine in color. It is a marvelous instrument, with tremendous sustain and tonal resonance.
