The classic Hummingbird style acoustic became one of the first acoustic guitars to become a recognized rock and roll icon thanks to Keith Richards, who used a Hummingbird on many Rolling Stones albums in the early '70s including Exile on Main Street and Sticky Fingers. Today, the Hummingbird is still a go-to acoustic for rockers like Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock who need an acoustic with fast action and great tone. Now, both beginners and professionals can enjoy a classic look designed and built with the integrity you expect from Epiphone.
The Hummingbird features a Solid Spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breath and improve with age the more its played. The more you play, the better it sounds! The body is made from solid mahogany and the bridge is made from carved rosewood, a perfect match for the Solid Spruce top. The classic Hummingbird/flower tortoise shell style pickguard is easy to spot on stage or across the room.
The Hummingbird's mahogany neck features a 25.5" scale, a SlimTaper™ shape, and a rosewood fingerboard with split parallelogram markers. Our iconic Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock completes the look with Grover tuners and "Hummingbird" on the adjustable truss rod cover. The Epiphone Hummingbird is available in Heritage Cherry Sunburst (HS).
