Anyone recognize what this guitar might be?

Sure. Gibson Hummingbird acoustic, or a Japanese fake ("inspired by Gibson") thereof. I'm not getting a match on the bridge or the neck inlays for a true Hummingbird. Pickguard shape is right, but the real ones that have that particular bridge shape are pegged differently at the nut and by the string pegs. The fretboard inlays on your image are not split, and the rosette color also differs. No visible label inside (though the brace appears in the proper position), and your image doesn't show a Gibson peghead decal. I'm leaning towards a copy by those disinclined to respect design copyrights.

Thanks for the reply. I spoke to the seller and there's no label on it so I was thinking it must be a knockoff of some kind. Looks nice, but who knows how it will sound.
