In 2010 Gibson launched this limited special model to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Hummingbird, which was introduced in 1960. Like the very first Hummingbirds in 1960, this model has a Sitka Spruce spruce top and mahogany sides and back. Other features are gold keystone Kluson tuning machines, custom mother-of-pearl "50" inlay in the headstock, gold painted 50th Anniversary pickguard, gloss finish and "50th Anniversary" engraved truss-rod cover. I can warmly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for the classic Gibson Country and Western sound. Very balanced, no bass buzz ... optimal for live and recording. The guitar is in top condition. Collectors and players are well served here.
