help ID Gibson Hummingbird

Recommended Posts



I'd like to know when my Gibson Hummingbird was built (and some more info if possible)


A local musicstore said it's from the 80's (info from serial nr.). I'm not sure if that's true.


Here are some pictures.


Thanx from Belgium

A bit more info. Your serial number (beginning with the number 6 and containing a total of 6 digits) corresponds to one or the other of two intervals during the 1970's. 70-72 or 74-75. Gibson's numbering has always been noted for taking some odd twists and turns - so it's not uncommon for repetitions to occur in their older instruments. I can't be sure whether or not your tuning machines are the originals, not that it matters, from the posted pictures.
