Disappointed By Hummingbird

Recommended Posts

No problem with the pick guard on my ‘20 HB, but it hasn’t sat on a shop wall for 2 years either.
Action is perfect.

If you want the etched nitro pick guard you can get it on the original series model, or the historic. I’m one of those players that often “anchors” my hand on the pick guard when playing fingerstyle and noticed my pinky was right on the birds head when I tried an original. I’d probably wear it off in a few weeks of playing! 

Ultimately I chose the best sounding bird and to my ears it was a standard over an original. Couldn’t care less about the pickguard being “flubber”.  Frankly I like that the bird won’t be worn off in a few years.
