Mike McCready’s 1960s Gibson Hummingbird

This is one of Mike’s favorite acoustic guitars, next to his Gibson Dove. Unfortunately, not a lot is known about this guitar, and Mike doesn’t seem to use it live very often. If you happen anything regarding when Mike got it, and whether he used it in the studio, please be sure to leave a comment below.

I love my mid-’60s Gibson Dove and Hummingbird.I also have a couple of Martins I like a lot, but I gravitate to the Gibsons because I saw the Stones using them in pictures from Exile on Main Street, and I thought, “Well, they’re my favorite band.” There’s a mythology to them, about how Gram Parsons played them, and the Everly Brothers. I bought into it, and still do, but they also play great and sound so warm.
