Paul Kossoff’s Gibson Hummingbird

According to an interview Kossoff gave to Guitar Player magazine in June 1976, prior to owning a Guild acoustic (which was his only acoustic at the time), he had a Gibson Hummingbird. Unfortunately, nothing else besides that is known about this Gibson.

I write songs on acoustic guitar. I have a beautiful Guild given to me by the band when I was sick. This is the best acoustic I’ve ever had. its better than the Gibson Hummingbird I had. I’ve never had a Martin, but I don’t think one would suit me. I dont play acoustic on stage, but id like to.
