1960 Hbird Fixed Bridge demo in Gibson Acoustic Posted April 16 · Report reply 51 minutes ago, JuanCarlosVejar said: Honestly I don’t think in terms of better or worse ... I think the standard hummingbird or the modern are great guitars but the historics (even if not 100 percent accurate) do capture a certain spirit present in the old ones. Think you are right - there is an obvious bond both in feel and sound between the new Vintage Birds (squares) and the actual vintage ancestors. And though the modern versions differ a bit from ex to ex they can be absolutely stunning acoustics when broken in. Regarding the oldies, the best of them are simply heavenly. And not the slightest a hyped myth. The ceramic saddled cherry 1965 Southern Jumbo I played last year still blows my mind. Unfortunately it had the narrow neck., , , but my purse was happy. .
