This successful model saw the light of the world as the first Gibson Western guitar in Square Shoulderform. The Gibson Custom Shop has came up with the 1960s VCS Aged Hummingbird - a limited, authentic reproduction of the 1960s original. The top is subjected to a thermal treatment - the top wood thereby acquires characteristics of old, long-deposited tone wood. The thin nitrocellulose varnish receives a beautiful patina through the VOS treatment.
