Hey Sam,
Please join us in the Gibson Owners group...lots of great discussions. Not too many Hummingbird owners yet...we would love to hear bout yours and see some pics! One member bought a Dove from me a while back and he just loves it. Since I started the Gibson Owners Group the two acoustics in the picture for the group page are mine, a 1994 Centennial J100 Extra and a 2004 J160E.
