In the world of acoustic guitars, the Hummingbird reigns king. The Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic-Electric guitar draws inspiration from some of the best Hummingbirds ever built, using solid woods, vintage appointments, and classic designs, making it the ideal go-to acoustic for gigging guitarists.
The Epiphone Hummingbird features a solid mahogany body, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a mahogany neck, giving it a rich tone with decadent lows, punchy mids, and beaming highs. Its square-shouldered dreadnought body provides it with plenty of projection, allowing it to shine through in louder performance settings. Players will also love the Hummingbird's ultra-comfortable rounded "C" shaped neck that fits the hand nicely without feeling too thick, making it perfect for everything from grandiose chording to fingerpicked solo lines.
For players who demand a little more 'oomph,' don't worry - the Hummingbird comes equipped with a Fishman Sonicore under-saddle pickup for amplified performances. Just plug into your favorite amp, adjust your sound with soundhole-mounted Volume and Tone controls, and you'll be able to keep up with ensemble playing while still retaining your acoustic's natural, woody tone.
Complete with Epiphone Deluxe tuners, a Kalamazoo style headstock, and a bone nut and saddle, the Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic-Electric is a top-notch guitar that is sure to impress even the pickiest of Hummingbird fans.
