If you are strumming and singing, the Bird hands down. If you are flatpicking fiddle tunes, then go with the AJ. But the AJ is not the “typical” Gibson short scale sound. The J-45 and the Hummingbird are.

I once owned an AJ which I kept for over a year and eventually sold to fund a killer J-45. The J-45 was my strumming and church service guitar for almost 5 years. I think if I ever own another Gibson again, I’d like to try a Hummingbird Vintage with the torrefied Sitka top...that is if I can find one with a nice fat deep neck (almost impossible).
