Gibson Hummingbird Sustainable
Sustain in the MembranesHere at Wildwood, we make a conscious effort to be stewards of the Earth. Sure, we love the natural beauty of the Rockies, but the Earth is where trees grow, and guitars come from trees, so if we aren't careful we might run out of wood to make Hummingbirds. Hummingbirds (and forests, lakes, mountains, rivers, and streams) are VERY important to us, so we try to be environmentally conscious. That's why we are over the moon about Gibson's new Sustainable series. Featuring wood harvested using responsible practices and Richlite fingerboards, these guitars are proof that you don't need to sacrifice tone to be eco-friendly. They feature hand-rubbed wax finishes, stylish wooden inlays and pickguards, so they're still drool worthy!
They also have that same classic Gibson tone we love, but with a walnut twist. Walnut's warmth and clarity complement the bright, sonorous voice of the Sitka spruce top quite nicely, and an LR Baggs VTC pickup ensures that this killer natural tone translates beautifully in live situations. We are proud to present such inspiring instruments to our exceptional customers, and we know they will prove themselves as friendly to the ears as they are to the earth.
