50's Hummingbird ID


Recommended Posts

Ive got my hands on a "50s" Hummingbird, Kalamazoo tag inside. Looks like 622867 on the headstock.  Older Gentleman says he bought it in '54.  Just trying to find out some history on it.   Pick guard and finish are in beautiful shape but the neck has a pretty good twist in it. Preview attachment IMG_1551.jpg

Welcome.

I can't access your photos, but there is no such thing as a 1954 Hummingbird. The Hummingbird was introduced  in 1960.

That serial number can be from one of several periods. It it is stamped on the back of the headstock, with no "made in USA" stamp below it, the guitar probably dates from the very late 1960s.

If it has a "made in USA" stamp beneath the serial number, it would be between 1970 and 1975.
