Re: Gibson Hummingbird Replica Acoustic guitar by columbus
: : Hi guys, I have recently inherited a hummingbird replica acoustic guitar made by columbus, and am trying to price and date it. Im unable to find anything, anywhere on the net for this type of guitar made by columbus. I have a feeling its from around the 70's, but cannot be sure. Any ideas?
: i have a columbus hummingbird
: i bought it about a year ago and it was Â£185 so i don't know how correct that is . I was also told it was dated from late 60's early 70's hope this helps x
My father bought me one in 1976, it was my first guitar, it cost Â£45 then. The sound was and still is awesome particularly with new set of strings. I saw one in a music catelogue in 1984, it was priced at Â£120, which surprised me, but when you hear it you can understand. I've still got it and play it and it still sounds awesome, I can understand now why the guy who taught me then (who played in a band) regularly asked to borrow it for gigs. I'm pleased I've turned down numerous offers for it over the years.
