Total Guitar - - ACOUSTIC -

Bring­ing a rare ’Bird back from the dead

Kelly’s new cus­tom Gib­son Hum­ming­bird might not be the first acous­tic you’d ex­pect in the arms of a coun­try out­law. “Gib­son has made me a gui­tar,” he tells TG. “I bought a Takamine for like 900 bucks when I was 18 and that’s the one I had for­ever. Now, Gib­son has made me a baby pink Hum­ming­bird with black trim. It’s like some­thing Mi­randa Lam­bert would play, but I don’t give a fuck! It’s so pretty. They of­fered to send me a gui­tar for this tour and for some of these Late Night [TV] per­for­mances and I was like, ‘Man, I saw you guys have this baby pink Hum­ming­bird. Send me that!’ They were like, ‘Oh, we don’t make them any­more...’ I said, ‘Well, you wanna send me a gui­tar? That’s the gui­tar I want!’
