What we say:The charismatic Hummingbird is perhaps, along with the J200 and the J45, the most famous and recognisable of Gibson's acoustic guitar designs. This Pro model from Epiphone preserves the same good looks of it's USA made brother but at a far more attractive price.
The Hummingbird Pro has a solid spruce top for great tone and Grover tuners for rock solid tuning stability. This guitar is an electro-acoustic so you can use the built in Shadow Nanoflex pickup system. It's finish is the same vibrant Sunburst, the fret markers are proper split parallelograms and the pickguard is the correct and detailed Hummingbird design.
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.
