Awesome Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm selling my 2005 Gibson Hummingbird Artist guitar. It is in amazing Like New condition(I can email larger pics), and comes with all of the original paperwork/receipts and original Gibson hardcase. The Hummingbird Artist is a limited edition guitar that was only released through Guitar Center. It is a Hummingbird, but also features a built-in pickup, and jack plug(hidden in the strap button on the bottom) so you can run it through an amp. 2005 is the first year for these, so it's a collector guitar. This guitar is made entirely of SOLID WOOD, and in the USA. If you play, you know that solid wood guitars "open up" and sound better with age. These are $2000 new in the stores, OR you can purchase mine, and get a guitar that already has 6years of aged wood while saving $200. Easy choice! PM me with any questions or for larger pics! ALSO, this guitar was gigged live at a concert by an extremely famous Florida rock band for an acoustic song. Price: $1800 and I will include shipping/insurance! If you have been thinking about a guitar, this one is a no-brainer and will last you a lifetime!

Does the GC Hummingbird play more like a Gibson Songwriter? I do not have much experience with the GC model and want to gauge depth of sound, etc. Also is the wood mahoghany or rosewood?

The Back, Sides, and Neck are all Mahogany with Scalloped Mahogany bracing. The top is Sitka Spruce. When I bought this new, my options were Hummingbird, Hummingbird Artist, and Songwriter. Sound-wise, this guitar blows the Songwriter out of the water. It is a very sweet sounding guitar;

Listen to Rolling Stones - Angie, and that is what this guitar sounds like to a 'T'.

I will disclose that to the purchaser. I don't want it to be a selling feature because they are friends of mine.

Any price drops due to the self bumping? Read the rules before trying to sell something.

Seriously though if you drop the price significantly I would be interested.

As for the "extremely famous Florida rock band" telling us who the band is might justify the price and help you get what you are asking for. Do you have any paperwork that shows they did indeed play the guitar for a song???

If it's Creed you know that lowers the value.

$100 off. If no takers, it's going to eBay tomorrow.


No, it's NOT Creed.
