Today i'd like to bring up an issue regarding expensive acoustic guitars.
The issue is the fact that there have been some acoustic guitars that have been considered part of the expensive acoustic guitars list but are actually made in large quantities. The fact that these guitars are made in mass and are considered to be expensive acoustic guitars is an insult to the luthiers who spend hours crafting perfect expensive acoustic guitars for guitar players.
A great example of this is the Gibson acoustic guitars. To be more precise I am referring to the Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar however this still applies to most other Gibson expensive acoustic guitars.
Do not get me wrong, Gibson acoustic guitars are amazing guitars and are actually my favourite kind of acoustic guitar to play. But these guitars fit into the category of guitars like custom PRS acoustics and Martin Custom shops.
Before I carry on I think it is important to delve into the specifics about the Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar.
- The hummingbird is iconic to the music world as it has been used by a lot of famous guitar players
- The guitar has been in production for over 50 years
- The guitar is expensive
- High quality electronics inside
