For customers residing in Japan
Hummingbird with double X-bracing in its folk heyday!"

This is a Hummingbird made in 1974-1975, the heyday of Japanese folk music. The model name at that time was Hummingbird Custom. It features block inlays, down belly bridge, double X bracing, rotomatic pegs, and 3-point truss rod cover.
Dents, scratches, cloudy paint, and dull metal parts can be seen, but the appearance is commensurate with its age. The neck is in proper condition, with about 45 degrees of room for the truss rod to be tightened, and about 70% of the fret height remains.
The neck was not angled, but the bridge was probably shaved to lower the string height. The current string height at the 12th fret is approximately 2.5mm on the 6th string side and 2.1mm on the 1st string side, which is a low setting for a product of this period. The tension of the strings is still maintained to some extent, and both playability and sound are perfect.
The response is tight, as is typical of a double X brace, but the resonance is also bold and dynamic, as is typical of a Gibson. The hard case may be genuine, but it does not have the Gibson emblem. This is a recommended one.
