From the Manufacturer

Epiphone Hummingbird PRO

A Country/Rock Classic Plugs In

The Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric guitar brings the legendary country/rock "Hummingbird" into the 21st century with the new Shadow ePerformer preamp and Shadow NanoFlex pickup system.

First introduced in 1960, the square shouldered Hummingbird quickly became a classic thanks to Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones, who used a Hummingbird for rhythm on early Stones hits like "Satisfaction," "Play With Fire," and "Under My Thumb." There are also many classic photographs of Keith using a Hummingbird on sessions for Exile on Main Street, Goat's Head Soup, and Sticky Fingers. Today, the Hummingbird is still a go-to acoustic for rockers like Noel Gallagher, Sheryl Crow, and Kid Rock when they need a rhythm guitar with smooth action and superb "woody" tone that's full of character.

On its own, the Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric can drive an all-acoustic band or be front and center at a picking party with its sweet, balanced tone. Now with the Shadow ePerformer preamp and Shadow NanoFlex pickup system, The Hummingbird PRO can plug-in and hold its own on any size stage.

Solid Spruce Tonewood

The Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric features a solid spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breathe and improve with age. The more you play, the better it sounds. The body and neck are made from select mahogany. The Hummingbird PRO neck has a classic SlimTaper D profile and features a 25.5" scale and is attached to the body with a glued-in dovetail joint. The rosewood fingerboard has pearloid parallelogram inlays, 20 medium frets, a 12" radius, and a 1.68" nut. There is single ply white binding on the fingerboard and 5-ply white and black binding on the body top while the back of the body has single ply white binding. The Hummingbird PRO has the classic sloped dovewing headstock has the "Epiphone" logo in white.

The Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric's reverse belly rosewood bridge has a compensated saddle for smooth action and intonation. The Shadow NanoFlex pickup system is under the saddle and the classic Hummingbird/flower tortoise shell style pickguard is easy to spot on stage or across a room.

Shadow Pickup System

Epiphone and Shadow Germany have worked together for over a decade at perfecting ways to amplify an acoustic guitar on stage. The Hummingbird PRO is just one of many Epiphone guitars that feature a cutting edge pickup system that can handle any size gig and still produce an "acoustic" sound. The Hummingbird PRO's controls for the Shadow ePerformer Preamp are on the upper bout and include controls for Master Volume, Treble and Bass EQ, Mute, and a Dynamics control adjusted via a frequency curve. There is also a low batter indicator. The preamp is powered by two 2032 batteries. The output jack and strap locks are nickel and the Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric is strung at the Epiphone factory with time-tested D'Addario Phosphor (12-53) strings. The Hummingbird PRO comes in a beautiful Faded Cherry color finish.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

Style Name: Hummingbird Verified Purchase
The rule is that you NEVER, NEVER, NEVER buy a musical instrument that you haven't personally laid hands and eyes on and inspected and tested for yourself. It is common for instruments that are made of natural materials like wood to be inconsistent and have some flaws. Things like temperature and humidity levels cause wood to change shape a little bit and can even cause wood to warp or crack. Add to that the fact that the wood is under the tension of tightly wound steel wires (strings) and you have a reasonable probability of inconsistency.

I have to say that I find the Epiphone Hummingbird PRO to be a possible exception to the hard and fast rule of: Try Before You Buy. When I received my Hummingbird PRO, I saw it has several markings on it indicating that it had been inspected multiple times prior to shipping. It has markings indicating that while it had been manufactured in Indonesia (the way Gibson/Epiphone keeps the cost down...and a good part of the world to find quality woods, I might add) it was "100% Inspected and set up in the USA" by Epiphone. If you don't know what a "set up" is, that refers to the guitar being adjusted to make it playable. The neck is straightened and all warps and twists are removed, the sting height is adjusted to be low enough to make the instrument easily playable but not so low as to cause the strings to 'buzz' against the frets, etc. When I received my Hummingbird, it was nearly in tune! Only 2 strings were out of tune and those 2 were not even a 1/2 step out of tune! It seems Epiphone tries to make this guitar set up and ready to play right out of the box and they got pretty close to that goal.

The action is low and comfortable, the fit and finish of the guitar is VERY smooth, and it's polished to a glossy shine.

Style Name: Hummingbird Verified Purchase
Mine just arrived this evening, and I've only had it out of the box long enough to verify that it was all in one piece and looked and sounded good.

Boy, does it ever look and sound good. :)

I got this one because my 18-year-old Takamine G-series has some serious fret wear, and a slightly warped neck, even with the truss rod maxed out, and will cost more to repair/refurbish than this one cost outright. Hence, the action is quite high, and it's hard to play bar chords higher than the 3rd fret, and there's some noticeable buzz and rattle unless I hold my mouth just right...

I primarily play electric guitar, and I'm not really what you'd call "good". But I know enough to know that this guitar was well set-up right out of the box. The action is nice and low, yet with no noticeable rattles. Bar chords and open voicings are easy to finger and play clearly well up the neck. It's not as obviously, meticulously crafted as the Gibson Hummingbird I looked at the other day, but at 10% of the price of the Gibson this is a killer bargain. I was a bit apprehensive about buying one online, especially as I'd never even seen the Epiphone Hummingbird in a store, but those fears were solidly laid to rest. Epiphone did a fine job making and setting this one up, and Music123 did a fine job packing it up and getting it here safely.

The tone is beautiful and full. Not quite as big and deep as my Tak, but neither is the guitar. Back when I bought the Takamine, I played several Fenders, low-end Taylors, a Guild, and some other brand I can't remember. None had as big and rich a sound as the Tak does, which I later learned was due to (at least in the case of the Fenders) many lower-priced acoustic guitars being made with laminate tops and backs.

Style Name: Hummingbird
As others have noted, and is common in reviews of this Epi - I like many others, have always pined for a Gibson Hummingbird but simply can't afford the $3k+ pricetag. I need an acoustic with a pickup so I decided to take a shot on this, and I'm glad I did.

This guitar is simply beautiful. The sunburst is perfect and the woodgrain on the spruce top shows through beautifully. The mahogany of the sides, back and neck also looks amazing. Overall the fit & finish of this guitar is top notch. Mine has one slight flaw on the edge of the soundhole near the neck, but it's tiny and barely noticeable. The binding has some smudges and slight stains here and there, but it's not really an issue. The back-bottom corner of the bridge has a slight gap where it wasn't seated down onto the top of the guitar, but it's maybe 1/16 of an inch, if that. And that's about it. Epiphone clearly has excellent quality control in their overseas factories.

Playability is excellent. The neck has a nice, chunky "D" shape - more substantial than any of my other acoustics. I absolutley love it. Slightly similar to my friend's early 70s Martin, though that has a slight V shape. I find the neck very comfortable (I like big necks and I cannot lie) - it feels great all the way up. And by chunky, I'm not referring to width, but depth. This is not a shallow neck carve - it's relatively close to that of a vintage tele or maybe a 70s strat. Anytime I've seen a neck described as a "D", it's felt similar to this Hummingbird, but that's a positive thing as far as I'm concerned. I love the neck, and that's one of the first things I assess on any guitar I pick up.

The tuners are Grovers and that's a good thing. Cheap tuners are often the downfall of less expensive guitars.
