Last night, I went to visit GC with my dad, seeking the Hummingbird; seeing if it lived up to its expectations. When I held it in my lap, it fitted right in with my body. When I played it, it sounded so melodic, even with the original strings on it (though it would be better to change the strings to some D'Addarios). The bass was not too low or high, and the neck was easy to slide up on. The price is the best for this wonderful Epiphone. I'd suggest this guitar for anyone that can play. The color in the pictures is way too light. I fell in love with the sunburst, even though it usually isn't my color.

If you're going for a guitar with a more beautiful look then definitely get this guitar. The finish is pretty great, just like the original Gibson. However, if you want a guitar with a better quality and tone then look somewhere else. I went to my local GC and compared this to the Gibson HM and a Seagull Entourage. In my opinion, the Seagull Entourage blows all of them right out of the water! I guess every guitar is different for everyone but I found neither hummingbirds to be effective. The tone was very weak and less crisp compared to the Entourage. Quality really makes a difference. Epiphones are mass produced on the other side of the world while Seagulls are handmade in Canada and as soon as you play both you will hear the difference. For the price difference you get a guitar that will last longer, unlike this Epi hummingbird which will probably give you 3 years if you're lucky.

Excellent

By Shannon

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I owned a Gibson Hummingbird back in the late 60's. Walked into Guitar Center to look at acoustic guitars, played several, and was blown away when I picked up and played this guitar. Great mid-range, sweet tone, and a beautiful guitar to look at. Couldn't believe it was on sale for $299.00. I consider this to be one of those "deals of a lifetime". Bought it..L-O-V-E it!

'Like It Better Than Gibson's

By Chad Sobodash

from Rochester Hills, MI

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I was at a local guitar shop recently looking for my next purchase. I was considering the EL-00 because I thought a parlor guitar would be a nice addition to my arsenal. Sadly, they did not carry it. However, they had both the Gibson and Epiphone Hummingbird, which I was eager to try ever since I saw it on BrightEyes' "Four Winds" video. I first played the Gibson, and was rather unimpressed with it. It featured a puffy-sticker decal as it's pickguard (which was shifted out of place--they will be returning it) and it just didn't sound special. It was somewhat the antithesis of the higher-end Yamahas; mellow, but weak. Not impressed, I nearly passed up playing the Epiphone, but being a fan of the company and of their archtops, I decided to give it a go. This is my guitar. This is the guitar I will take with me to the ends of the earth. I played it for maybe four minutes before telling them to keep a hold of it for me while I replenish my funds. The Epiphone Hummingbird rings with such powerful midranges; soft as a hummingbird's flight and sweet as the nectar it drinks. The guitar itself is a beauty; none of that puffy-sticker pickguard the Gibson had. This is a quality guitar, and you won't be disappointed by it.

A Great Guitar and a Great Value

By George

from Montgomery, Alabama

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

It's hard to find a moderately priced guitar that gives you great sound, tone and playability but when I played this Epiphone Hummingbird, I was very impressed. After playing it and hearing it I had to have it, although it took three tries to get it. The first two arrived damaged but the Guitar Center staff worked with me until we got it right. It was well worth the wait. I have always been impressed with the value, sound, and quality of Epiphone products and the Hummingbird is no exception. This little guitar has beautiful ringing sound and a stunning, classic, visual appearance. Very pleased with this guitar and the price. For me it was well worth the money.

you get what you pay for

By epi-man

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

This is a pretty good guitar, I used to have one. Obviously since it has a mahogany body and a spruce top, its got a nice deep, warm sound, just like all solid tops. However I don't understand why people see it as exceptional, personally I think it sounds mediocre for a solid spruce top guitar. And it in no way compares to a martin, go play even the 500 dollar DX model martins, they sound so much better in every way, and they FEEL so much better. If I had 300 dollars to spend on an acoustic, and didnt want to save any more, then yes this is a good buy. But I would never say that this is better than more expensive guitars. I own a yamaha fg750s, which is 100 dollars more, and I think it has a much fuller, richer sound than this guitar, and more importantly a better feel. If I had 300 bucks I would save 100-200 more for something nicer (such as a martin DX1, masterbilt epiphone, yamaha fg750s, etc.)

Why buy a Martin?

By guitarslinger71

from Sierra Vista, AZ

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I bought my hummingbird in Tucson, AZ.about six months ago. I wasn't sure what brand or model I was going to buy. I played a Martin D-28 and D-18 and then the salesman said to save my money and try the Hummingbird. I was blown away! The feel of the neck was perfect and the tone had good bass and crisp highs. It is proof positive that you do not have to buy an $1800.00 Martin in order to get a great guitar. I plan on buying a Dove Ebony model next.

Beautiful to play and see!

By David Morningstar

from Pa

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I recently traded an electric guitar in on this guitar and I am very glad I did. It is a pleasure to play and is almost as easy as my electrics. It's action is great. It is a real beauty as well. I have been getting many compliments on how great it looks when I play gigs. The sound is very clean and it projects nicely. I have a rather rare Grammer Dreadnought that I play that is made of the same materials and it sounds as good and is easier to play. I definatly think the price is right of this guitar and I would recomend it highly. The picture doesn't do justice to the finish and color of the actual guitar it is really pretty. Buy and enjoy!

Epiphone Hummingbird Cherry Sunburst

By Arthur Andersen

from Metairie LA

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

In a word, AWESOME!!! Arrived fast and in perfect condition, even tuned. The action was perfect and the strings are not too hard on my fingers. The intonation was excellent and easily would equal in quality the Gibson Hummingbird at alot less $$ I love it. Too bad a case or bag is not recomended with it.

Incredible!

By hummingbird lover!

from Longmont, CO

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I got the ebony version after playing the other in the store, I fell in love immediatly! Not only did the guitar sound beautiful, but it looks amazing in ebony! The only word of caution, my husband was expecting the pickgaurd to be black, and it isn't, it is a beautiful dark brown. The sound is really rich and it has a great tone, I am so glad I went with it!

Good guitar

By Daniel

from Lak Jackson, TX

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

This is a great guitar for the price! wonderful about every feature. The polish is a little sqeaky and the strap knob up by the neck is on the bottom so every time you let go of the neck it goes behind your back like your going to walk or something. I love it. It as a beautiful clean sound. it gets out of tune very quickley though.GREAT GUITAR! BUY IT!

Great Guitar for the Price.

By Jamie

from Dallas Texas

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I got an Epiphone Hummingbird about 90 days ago. I could not be more pleased. It is an awesome guitar for the price. It is not as good as the Gibson Hummingbird, but it cost $2,000 less. For the price I do not think you can find a better acoustic guitar. I would gladly recommend it to anyone who wants a good low cost acoustic guitar.

Amazing Guitar

By Fender813

from Connecticut

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

The hummingbird is a truely beautiful guitar. The sound is excellent and its full of sustain. The heritage cherry sunburst is nearly flawless and their are abalone inlays on the bridge pins and the headstock. I changed the strings right at the store to Clapton's Choice Martins to really bring out the tone. Worth every penney!

Top Notch

By Fran

from Staten Island,NY

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

While learning to play, I've had a few guitars before this one. I was always frustrated because my sound was not good and thought it was all me. Then I saw this beautiful guitar and had to have it. I have it about 2 years now and I absolutely love the look of it and the sound! I can't put it down.

Wow!

By elvisfan2311

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I played a friend of mines hummingbird, and what can I say, Wow. It has a great warm tone to it, and sounds identical to the Gibson. Personally I can't tell the difference between the Gibson and the epiphone. If you're thinking about buying, do yourself a favor and get the epiphone. It's cheaper and yet sounds the same.

AWSOME guitar- still plays as good as the 1st day I've owned it.

By anonyomous

from endicott, new york

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I have had this guitar for 3 years now, and love it to death. I own 3 other guitars (esteban acoustic electric, black star daisy rock, and atomic pink electric daisy rock), and this is by far my favorite guitar I own, and just about the only one I'll pick up and play....all though I do on occasion lug in my pink one and shred! This guitar was the best investment I've purchased. Feels great, and plays great; the sound is like sweet music to my ears! I own this in the cherry burst and highly recommend this acoustic guitar to anyone and I have no regrets suggesting this one either!

just wow

By Fink

from Fredericksburg, Virginia

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

well i walked into my local guitar center today, went straight to the acoustic room, and i saw this and picked it up because i'd been looking for it for a while. the cherry burst photo on here definitely does not do the real thing justice. it is an absolutely beautiful guitar. so i played it for a while, then i played a gibson hummingbird, and i honestly could not tell a difference other than the price. this guitar is beautiful, and it sounds really good. it will definitely be my next acoustic guitar

Hummingbird=LOVE <3

By Me.

from Mobile, Alabama

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I went to Guitar Center the other day, just for fun. When i saw this beauty, i couldnt NOT want to sit down and play it. I must say, its one of the best Acoustics ive played, the sound is amazing. not to mention, the design is beautiful. A good quality guitar for a pretty affordable price. Unfortunately, i couldnt buy it that minute. I'm hoping to find it under my Christmas Tree this year. ;P

Ehh. Its okay

By Daniel22

from Mill Creek, WA

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

this was my first guitar and it was a great one! For the price you are getting an okay guitar. As soon as i upgraded to a Martin D-16gt though they didn't even compare. I'm saying that the epiphone hummingbird is only a beginner guitar. It's still good, but its not one to stick with.

Nice guitar

By Pete Blanchard

from Branch, Louisiana

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

Bought this guitar for my 14 year old recently. Sounded good right out the box. Stays in tune very well. Only ever needs very small adjustments to the tuning. The picture does not do this instrument justice. It is much more beautiful in person. It sounds and plays like a much more expensive guitar. I'd recommend this guitar to anyone wanting a nice instrument on a working mans budget. Saving up to get the ej200 for myself.
