An affordable take on an acoustic icon sure to please any fingerpicker.
The Hummingbird is one of the most famous acoustic guitar designs and its preference as the go-to acoustic for rockers like The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, pioneer country rocker Gram Parsons, and multi-platinum artist Sheryl Crow is proof that the Hummingbird is a must-have for its warm but pronounced tone that perfectly compliments voices that have a story to tell. Now with the Limited Edition Epiphone Hummingbird Artist you can get that iconic sound in a no-frills all-tone package.
Rock, Country, and Everything In Between
The Hummingbird-style acoustic has appeared on some of the most famous albums in rock history including Exile On Main Street and the Hummingbird Artist carries on that tradition with a stripped-down, just-the-basics look that still retains all of the Hummingbird’s vital tone and construction features. After all, it’s all about tone and the Hummingbird Artist has got it.
The Hummingbird Artist features a select mahogany body and top for a warm but balanced tone that sounds great played solo or riding on the top of a mix with a stinging electric guitar. The easy fitting hand-set 25.5” mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with eye-catching Split Diamond pearloid inlays. That iconic inlay pattern was a break from tradition in the '60s and is still one of the Hummingbird’s many visual trademarks. The strings pass through a rosewood bridge with a synthetic bone saddle and the soundhole is framed with a tortoise shell style pickguard cut to the classic Hummingbird style. The 1.68 nut-width is ideal for the classic Hummingbird body shape and SlimTaper neck and holds steady for hard rhythm styles as well as fingerpicking.
