67 Hummingbird

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum

Just inherited a virtually unplayed '67 Hummingbird Natural from a relative of my wife.  Luckily the strings were slacked on it and it was stored in a controlled environment.  To say it looks like a new guitar would be an understatement.  I'm having fun exploring the sound and feel of this mahogany/spruce guitar with a narrow nut.  It's a bit different from my Santa Cruz Tony Rice, but I like the mid-frequency emphasis and the blended sound.  I'll stick with my Tony Rice for lead flatpicking, but this 'Bird is fun.

Welcome aboard.  Congrats on scoring what sounds like a great guitar.  Be prepared for requests for pics.

   Here's that virtually untouched early '68 Hummingbird.  Notice the screws attaching the pickguard, belly-up bridge, gold Klusons, and the oval orange label.  Original case. IMG_2781.JPG.1129ddfa65431b1b5164f3abf4b34c76.JPGIMG_2793.JPG.a338f33f2ab74d061893a4b328da6460.JPG
