I guess there is more than one kind of Gibson Hummingbird. The shoulders look round on this one.

Into the bargain, Uranus is a gas giant, so it has to be very rare. ;)

Looks like "Carnival glass" with a bird in it. Whatever it is or isn't worth, I think it would be kind of cool to have it near a Hummingbird guitar...... Us gee-tar people are a strange breed. That's why we're so cool.

Easy to resist on the web, but if it crossed my path in 'real life' it'd have a new home for sure!

Yes, they can, small bubbles of otherworldly wonder, , but apart from that I didn't purchase the emerald bird.

As a counter point to this somewhat daft thread, it's time to post this link to the 1965 real deal.

Not that I wasn't and isn't behind the original item. Just to give things a little more weight.



Thanx for baring with me. .

Narrow nut, long scale......not much of a Hummingbird, is it. Still a good looking example and the price seems reasonable.

Where can I get one of those translucent red guards with gold paint?

I forgot the long-scale, but actually wrote the seller a week ago to make him conform it's not a misunderstanding.
And sure, it's a Dove-neck.
The guitar remains a Hummingbird though - and seems to be quite a bargain.

1965? Just bein' a smartass, sorry.... The narrow nut isn't my favorite, though the long scale would do me fine. It's definitely in good cosmetic condition. My 65-er has the wide nut and long scale and more honest play wear. If I can get to it b/4 this thread evaporates, I'll try to post a picture for ya.

Beautiful bird on the eBay, though. What finish is/was that ?

I shall resist being dragged 2 centuries into the uncertain future with every fiber of my aged being😖

Meanwhile, in 1965 the finish adorning that lovely H'bird would have been called sunburst. The 'cherry sunburst' was an identified variant, but in acoustics that's about all. Ah, twas a simpler time!

How many centuries until the lexicon no longer works? That would be something.

Yes, fan of the bursts, no doubt. This one seemed to be such a faded burst as to be the Iced Tea barely still present?

Quite a variety to identify and from which to choose currently. I often wonder if the inspiration derived from observing the effects of time on earlier, usually unnamed, Gibson 'bursts from the past. Seems pretty logical.
