Hummingbird ID


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a Hummingbird that's for sale in a nearby city and I'm trying to determine exactly what model it is before spending half a day driving round trip to check it out in person. It's obviously a Bird with a 2014 serial number, it has a Custom Shop label and appears to be a limited run of some kind. No electronics. Does anyone know what non-standard specs it might have? I'm trying to figure out what it's worth to me. Thanks for any comments or input.


Dealer lists specs as follows:

Top: Sitka Spruce

Back and Sides: Mahogany

Neck: One piece Mahogany

Fretboard: Rosewood/ Mother of Pearl split parallelogram inlays Nut and Saddle: Bone

Bracing: X, spruce

Nut width: 1-3/4"

Scale length: 24-7/8"

Bridge: Rosewood

Finish: Heritage Cherry Sunburst/ Nitrocellulose Lacquer

Logo: Period-correct mother-of-pearl Gibson logo

Tuners: Vintage-style gold-plated tuners with green tulip keys

Pickguard: Three-point pickguard with pastoral hummingbird engraving, casted from Kalamazoo's original 1960’s mold and hand-painted in Montana

It turned out to be a Hummingbird New Vintage and according to Gibson customer service, part of a limited run for Wildwood Guitars, which explains the Custom Shop decal. Not much different than a TV from what I can tell.
