1965 Gibson Hummingbird at Carter's


Recommended Posts

...I believe it's the simplest model Gibson made as it was a limited edition custom shop model.

Yes I know about the base board heat = OFF...I have a humidifier as well in the room and one for each acoustic inside the case. :rolleyes:


Actually I kind of like it w/o the pattern on the pg, looks bang on besides I can always swap it for an OEM if I want to in the future in which will rub off with the playing I do.


My numero uno alas! [thumbup]

I just saw a 1965 Gibson Hummingbird for sale online at Carter Vintage Guitars, Nashville:








Damn, this looks just like my 1964 Gibson Hummingbird (Serial # 180561) that was stolen by Steve Jackson of Jackson's Rare Guitars, asshole he is!

Too bad about the pickguard. Shame you can't really fix them unless they just fall off. don't know how correct this is, but I was told that back in the day Gibson use to use Nitro/lacquer to glue those pickguards on. they'd paint the backside with lacquer and put it on the top and use a clamp of some sort to hold it down.
