Very Good Condition


Gibson Hummingbird Custom w K&K Pure Mini Professionally Installed

Year: Early 1970s

Origin: Kalamazoo, MI. USA

Color: Sunburst

Neck profile/nut width: The neck profile is a slimmer “C” that isn’t too slim. The nut width is 1 5/8

Case/Extras: Original case in Very Good condition with some light wear at the inner compartment and other light signs of the case’s age. Overall, it’s a great-looking and fully-functional case.

Modifications/Repairs: K&K Pure Mini has been professionally installed and neck has been professionally refretted. The original owner attempted to restore paint to the pickguard etchings but abandoned the project after the flower in the lower corner. In picture two you can get a better look at it. The work is not pro but it’s pretty minimal and has a charm to it especially since it was the original owner’s work. It also may be removable from the guard if the next buyer wishes to.

Cosmetic Condition: Very Good condition with one significant ding on the front, some wear to the finish, the aforementioned light paint on the lower part of the pickguard and other light signs of the guitar’s age. Overall condition is an 8 out of 10.

Operational Condition: Fully-functioning with a working truss rod lots of room on the saddle. Original frets have very little wear and the action is phenomenal and easy to play up and down the neck.

Description: Gibson makes some great new guitars that try to replicate the sound and feel of their vintage guitars but it’s just not the same. Not even close in our humble opinion and this gorgeous vintage Hummingbird from the early 1970s is the perfect example of this. It was loved and adored but overall well cared for and has been upgraded to be a player’s go to for live and studio playing. This guitar is a joy to play and listen to with a great neck and pro refret, it sounds fantastic with a clear, balanced and woody vintage tone that sounds just like all those great Rock and Pop records from the early 1970s and the added K&K Pure Mini pickup is the perfect way to amplify it’s classic tone. You need this beautiful Hummingbird in your life!
