Hey There - I'm billroy from west of boston (go Celtics) - About to enter the Gibson acoustic family... looking for a nice mahogany cutaway guitar, and after playing many, settled on a hummingbird. Per lots of things i read, you should try out several to make sure you get a good one - my question, i'm from west boston, does anyone have recommendations on where to go to get a selection to look at / try out?
'18 Gibson J45, vintage
'86 Guild D25
'00 Fender Strat (American Standard)
'90 Fender Strat (Korea, bought in an open market in Korea... yeah it might be real)
'68 Gibson SG
'17 Several 3 String CBGs

Hi, Charlie from the Peak District in England. Had a few Gibsons, old and new - now have my scruffy old c. 36 L-00 (my first Gibson, bought in 2008) plus a couple of similar vintage Kalamazoo KG-14s (one a 12-fretter). Im currently on a quest for a good 1946 J-45 Script. Just missed out on one Id arranged to see over here - but which unfortunately disappeared before I got to see it (some things just arent meant to be!) So now Im extending my search and hoping maybe someone, somewhere might point me in the direction of one!

Hi Everyone. I've actually been on the Gibson board for a while, in total, due to a bad stretch of luck with some Epi Electrics. I've since upgraded and now have complimented my 4-ish year old Gibby LP with a new Hummingbird. Been playing for about 10-14 years, which coincided with the last 7 years of learning my Pro Tools based "home project Studio".

I look forward to chatting guitars with you guys and gals.
2018 - Gibson Hummingbird
2015 - Taylor 614CE
2013 - Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro(59)
2014 - Epiphone Black Royale P93
2015 - Epiphone ES335 Custom
2005 - Epiphone Les Paul Custom (MIK)
2008 - MIM Tele - Modded to Keefocaster
2011 - Fender USA Strat Standard
2012 - Fender USA Telecaster
2009 - PRS SE Paul Allender
2007 - Gretsch 5120 Electromatic
2016 - Fender Jazz Bass
Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue
Jet City Amps 20W JCA2112RC
Pro Tools based "Home Project Studio"

Howdy Gibson community =)
Im Max from the german outback :D 26 years old and a proud Gibson owner for almost 3 weeks now. I bought a Gibson LG0 which is more than 50 Years old now and i love to make it talk. It has a very special Sound that fits to the Music that i want to produce and the fact that its twice as old as i am adds some Kind of emotions =) I still have to get used to it and i have to practice a lot in General to get to the Point to Play in small Pubs which is a big Dream of mine. I listen to a lot of bands but my biggest Inspiration is Bob Dylan and older Music in General and the best Thing for me is to make this Kind of Music oustide in the Woods. I am Looking Forward to get some new contacts and useful Information here. Here is my Soundcloud profile, but still a lot of work ahead of me :D

Have a good day,
Max

Hello,

I´m Stefan, playing guitar since the late 1970s as a hobby. My first acoustic steel string was a Hummingbird clone from a well known company from Japan - I still have it, but now I could afford a real Hummingbird and some other nice acoustic guitars. Playing electric guitar, too, but do not dare to mention the name of my favourite modell in this forum [rolleyes]

I have been following the Gibson acoustic forum for a long time and decided to register now.

Hello to all. I am a retired IT Systems Manager in Northwest Alabama. I have a 1969 Hummingbird I purchased new when I was 19 in 1969. Also still have the original hard shell case. The guitar has aged well and is my go to guitar for vocals. Also have a 2010 Taylor DN3, Johnson mandolin, violin, and dulcimer. I know just enough about all this to be dangerous. I also play bass, but currently do not own one. I have a small home recording studio as a hobby. Just repaired the bridge on the Hummingbird. It was pulling up so I removed it, cleaned and sanded off the old glue, and reinstalled it. Came out really well and did not affect the sound of the guitar at all. In fact seems better. I joined to learn from you all.

Hi Hummingman - why not present that Bird in a thread down-stairs. The more pics & sounds the better.

Welcome, , , a bit quiet at the moment, but you will find groovy people here. And all there is to know about acoustic Gibson on the pages behind us.

Hello I'm Alex, I am a guitarholic, 40 years old, now I am trying to reduce the herd but regarding the acoustics this is my current "collection":

Martin HD28V
Gibson Sheryl Crow (old model, square shoulders)
Gibson J45 60s (the one that made me write here after a long time)
Ovation Balladeer 40th Anniversary

These are my three favourite (plus the new entry that I still have to assess), then I have two 12 strings, a Guild JF30-12 and an Ovation Custom Legend 6759, both excellent but as 12 strings they are a little delicate.

My other acoustics are an old 1974 Ovation Folklore, a BC Rich made with brazilian rosewood and a sunburst D25.

I generally like Gibsons, Guilds and Ovations, and I mostly play acoustic rock like Led Zeppelin, Queen, some Black Sabbath acoustic tunes, Boston, Guns'n'roses...in short I don't think I am the "average" acoustic player because of the music I play.
2010 Sheryl Crow Signature
2011 Advanced Jumbo

Plus the others...
