Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab 1960 Hummingbird Light Aged Heritage Cherry Sunburst' Acoustic Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Introducing the Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab 1960 Hummingbird Light Aged Heritage Cherry Sunburst Acoustic Guitar, a meticulously crafted reproduction of a vintage '60s-era classic. This exquisite instrument embodies the timeless charm and exceptional craftsmanship that Gibson is renowned for.

The 1960 Hummingbird, Gibson's first square-shoulder dreadnought, made its debut at the dawn of a new era in music and quickly became a favorite among prominent musicians of the time. This replica features a thermally aged Sitka spruce top, meticulously crafted to replicate the appearance and performance of those early icons. The Murphy Lab Light Aged finish treatment, expertly applied by skilled artisans, simulates decades of light play wear, giving the guitar a unique character, vibe, and feel reminiscent of an original instrument from the Gibson Golden Era.

Crafted with premium materials, this Hummingbird replica features a thermally aged red spruce top paired with hyper-resonant mahogany back and sides, delivering a punchy, direct sound with near-limitless headroom. The mahogany neck with a rounded profile and rosewood fingerboard provides an authentic vintage playing experience, while details such as multi-ply binding, a multi-ply rosette, mother-of-pearl parallelogram fingerboard inlays, and a casted Hummingbird pickguard add to its aesthetic appeal.

The instrument also boasts Gibson's weight-relieved hand-scalloped top bracing, which enhances strength while allowing the top to vibrate with a piston-like action, resulting in exceptional tone. This meticulous attention to detail, combined with Gibson's proprietary aging techniques, ensures that each guitar in the Murphy Lab series captures the essence of a vintage instrument.

Whether you're a collector, a professional musician, or an enthusiast seeking an instrument with unparalleled tone and character, the Gibson Custom Shop Murphy Lab 1960 Hummingbird Light Aged Heritage Cherry Sunburst Acoustic Guitar is a testament to Gibson's legacy of excellence and innovation.
