Much of the Hummingbird's appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones and is equally at home strumming first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for picking lead lines. Its spacious mahogany body and sweet, select Sitka spruce top are more than capable of nailing down the rhythm in the hands of a rock and roll sideman, or accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today's alternative singer-songwriter.

The slightly shorter scale length makes the Hummingbird very comfortable to play, and is well-suited to both fingerstyle and flatpicking. I find my Hummingbird isn't as loud as some other Gibsons or Martins but with the right strings (I use John Pearse 12s) is very measured and has a better tone, at least to me, than comparable instruments. The finish is absolutely jaw-dropping and draws a lot of compliments. Not so good stuff - the pickguard lifts continually and I'm forever pushing it back down. Gibson needs to do a better job gluing these down before they leave the factory as I'll have to eventually have it reglued. There is also a small imperfection near the parallelogram on the 7th fret. There is no way anyone could argue a Hummingbird is good value so I won't even try to. But, I would put it to you that it was worth it. Thanks to the Deaner at L&M on 48th in Calgary for the help.
