A Hummingbird (and The Apple Garageband String Quartet) in Gibson Acoustic Posted March 23, 2018 · Report reply I have not listened to your recording, but I did want to chime in about the Hummingbird. I recently purchased my first bird and I can't say enough great things about it. It's everything I want in an acoustic guitar. I had a Martin D-28 Marquis - no slacker, but I ended up selling it because the Hummingbird is just perfection to me. The greatest thing about it to me is the tone. It's a rich sounding guitar and each note plays with such clarity. The Martin sounds beautiful, and can be LOUD if you want it to be, but the Hummingbird tone is just amazing. My martin had a modified V neck which I could play, but never loved. My HB is a 2000 model - not sure what neck shape they call it, but it's perfect. I also like the width at the nut - not quite as wide as the Marquis, but wider than a D-45 for instance, which I find too narrow. Finally, the thing is beautiful to look at ! That cherry sunburst, the black head-stock with the Gibson inlay, and the double chevron's - it's a piece of art.
