Own a Legendary Acoustic at an Amazing Price
Taking its cues from one of the more iconic acoustics of the past six decades, the Epiphone Hummingbird bottles all the classic tone, feel, and visual aesthetics and puts it right into your hands. Whether you are standing or sitting, this seminal square-shouldered acoustic offers a one-of-a-kind balance and feel that will ensure hours of comfortable strumming or fingerpicking. The Hummingbird features a solid Sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides for a blend of crisp high end and midrange with a rich low-end foundation. A gorgeous mahogany neck with an Indian laurel fingerboard offers incredible response and playability, whether you're playing big open chords or quieter single-note passages. And when you are ready to plug in, the Epiphone Hummingbird's Fishman Sonicore pickup will deliver incredible amplified acoustic tone.
A visual feast
The classic cherry sunburst top on the Hummingbird is enhanced by an aged gloss finish, and the original art of its unmistakable pickguard is a feast for the eyes. Ivory and black binding on the back and top give the Hummingbird even more aesthetic appeal, along with the reverse-belly Indian laurel bridge with ivory pins. A crown headstock inlay is yet another detail that is a true tip of the cap to the original. Plus, deluxe tuners with press-in gold bushings look classy and keep you in tune.
Legendary neck for incredible response
The ultra-comfortable rounded "C"-profile neck on the Epiphone Hummingbird has been glued in and features a tapered dovetail neck joint. Antique ivory binding along the neck and vintage mother-of-pearl split parallelograms on the fingerboard add even more classic visual details that will delight. The Indian laurel fingerboard is incredibly smooth and responsive — it will leave you with no doubt as to why the original it was inspired by has won over a legion of guitarists.
Stellar Sonicore-powered amplified tone
The Epiphone Hummingbird features an under-saddle, piezo-wired Fishman Sonicore pickup, which translates the instrument's tone in a pure fashion. A soundhole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone gives you incredibly easy, quick access to tweak your tone — a feature guitarists find especially practical.
