1969 Gibson Hummingbird

[1969 Gibson Hummingbird]

This one has had a hard life, but Joyce worked diligently to revive it. This one really has some mojo, and is one of the better sounding Hummingbirds we've had through the shop

Joyce replaced several braces and top cracks and some very deep scratches on the back. We have also converted it to a straight saddle from an adjustable, which just happened to drastically improve the intonation. The action is at an easy playing 5/64" on the treble and 7/64" on the bass at the 12th fret. This has the really narrow neck that was typical of the late 60s Gibsons.
