Overview

A true legend of acoustic instruments, the Gibson Hummingbird was first introduced in 1960 as Gibson's earliest square-shoulder dreadnought. The Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist is a no-frills edition of a classic acoustic guitar that features a solid spruce top, mahogany backs and sides for a warm, natural acoustic tone. The 25.5" scale mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that facilitates fast picking styles. Appointments include a sculpted tortoise shell pickguard and split parallel fingerboard inlays. The Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Guitar possesses all the power you expect from a dreadnought and has strong bass tones that are favored by country and bluegrass players.

When i went to the store and played this guitar i hadnt looked at the brand yet. after playing it for a few seconds i thought it was gibson, in which case it would have been out of my price range. After trying many other guitars i decided to go back and check this one out again. The second time i played it i saw that it was epiphone i took one glance at the price tag and bought it right then and there. Everything about this guitar is perfect, the action, the frets, the bridge, the tuners, the finish, the sound. I would highly recomend this guitar to anyone who is looking to get an amazing guitar for an amazing pr

I ordered this online and had it shipped to me because there wasn't one in the enter to try. I read several reviews and my son had a Epiphone AJ200 I had played, so I really thought this was a good choice for the money and as a starter guitar for me. When it arrived my first thought was the carton is really light for having a full sized guitar in it. Afetr getting through all the paper and packing the guitar itself had no weight to it at all, not even compared to my sons Epiphone. In fact I picked up my sons guitar and compared the two, and the new guitar was at least half the weight of my sons, if not more. The wood was noticably thinner on the newer one all around, on the front , back, sides and neck. Ok, so things change, and I can live with a light guitar as long as it sounds good. Looking the whole guitar over I noticed the fit and finish were both sloppy and at a minimum, and not up to Epiphone's reputation. There was a blemish over an inch long on the bottom curvature that was "under" the finish and certainly had to have been noticed by quality control which alone should have made this guitar a "second". There were more finish failures (which I know from experience and schooling) were caused by putting a finish over dust particles. I read the label and saw it was made in Indonesia, obviously without someone from Epiphone ever seeing it, because this thing can only be described as "rough". I finally gave it a strum and then hoped what I was hearing would go away after a tune. I used my sons electronic tuner and even stretched the strings and re-tuned, only to find the "tinny" sound didn't go away. I pondered putting a set of Elixir's on it but decided instead to just to return it. I drove to the Guitar Center and explained my disappointment and the good folks there understood my frustration and worked with me to find a replacement right then. I will add, the Salesperson tuned this guitar himself and played it. His description was, "buzzy and tinny" so it wasn't just me. I will not order a guitar without playing it again, and I certainly would not recommend THIS guitar to anyone for any reason.

Great Bang For Your Acoustic Buck

By John Hauptman

from Lanark IL.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar from GC in Rockford IL. I was going to buy the ebony at first, but I had to wait a week for it to get shipped. I saw a cherryburst model in the store and fell in love. First off; Its a very nice LOOKING guitar. For the price, ya figured they would skimp on the finish...not so. Nice body finish-very bright, nice job on the inlays, and the back and sides are beautiful. The guy at GC set mine up really nice. Low action and a nice set of Elixers. It plays like a cloud. I plan on an upgrade to some graphtech bridgepins, nut and bridge, but for now...Nice sustain and dreadnaught boom. The sound is what ya would expect. Big bass, nice mids and round highs. I recomend this guitar to any budget minded player who wants a nice looking guitar that plays well and sounds as good as it looks.

Not what i was expecting.

By john j

from philadelphia, pa

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

i was shopping around for a cheaper guitar and came across this one on a few sites. most people who leave reviews say how great it is in every aspect. well, i for one do not agree. i found the faded cherry version at a store and could not believe that people were raving about this guitar. maybe my problem was that i was expecting a lot more but i must confess i was really let down. my biggest problem and to most is nothing major im sure but the tuners were light green and plastic. im sure epiphone/gibson could afford much better if they are trying to carbon copy one of gibsons greatest guitars for way cheaper. i own an epiphone ej 200 and compared to the epiphone hummingbird there is no comparison. the ej 200 kills it. sound wise and play ability it was ok. good but not great. you can get so much better for the same price. for those who cant afford a gibson hummingbird i guess this will hold you over but i for one would look else where first.

EXCELLENT!!!!

By Alex

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

Excellent Guitar- Couldn't ask for more. I am going to buy one after my next job. As for the review about the tuners, These tuners with the greenish knobs are beautiful. These were the style tuners used on alot of Gibson guitars. This guitar could not be better. You can find one with more Frills and stuff, but nothing thats a better quality, expecially not for the price. Personally I dont care for the frilly looking guitars. I like things simple and clean. This is a beautiful quality guitar great for any level of guitar player.

Beautiful guitar with sweet tone

By Karen Denney

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar has the sweet hummingbird tone at a reasonable price. The appearance of this guitar is classic from the fret board design to the tulip style tuners. Why pay more when you can have it all? A solid built guitar you'll be proud to show off!!

AMAZING

By kibbs616

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I was looking for a good acoustic guitar and I came upon this one. It had a great distinct look to it, a little off from the rest of the sunbursts, but it was great none the less. I picked it up and it had a great sound to it. After trying numerous great guitars that were much higher priced, I came back to this one and once again, sounded great. AMAZING GUITAR AMAZING VALUE!!!!

Sweet guitar for the price

By zac

from atlanta

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I got this guitar to mess around with, and later installed electronics. It has a very bassy and distinct sound that cuts through really well. Finish looks great, and it plays wonderfully. People always ask me if it was expensive, and tell me how great it sounds. I really like this guitar so far, and hope it stands the test of time.

Awesome Guitar!! Great Value!

By GregM

from Morristown, NJ

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I initally wanted to buy a solid wood guitar because I thought the sustainability would be better. Well I tried a Taylor DN3 and this guitar in GC and both guitar's sustain were about the same. I couldnt believe it. You pluck a string on this Artist and it will hum for quite a while. It sounds great. Just a nice warm tone. This guitar has low action which makes it easy to play, even for a relative beginner like me. The neck fits my hand perfectly. That's one thing any person wanting to buy a guitar should check. Does it fit my hand? If you are looking for a guitar for any reason, I would say to check this one out. It's beautiful, plays easy, sounds great, and has incredible sustainability.

Very pleased!!

By Robert Arntz

from Martinez, Georgia

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

I ordered this guitar from Guitar Center and recieved it very well packaged. When I removed the guitar to check it out I was very surprised to find that it had already been adjusted for proper string height at the nut and bridge and came with documentation showing all adjustments that were made. All I had to do was tune it and start playing. I have always had to adjust every guitar previously bought before playing. The finish is very nice and looks great. I would recommend the Epiphone Humingbird Artist to anyone and would play this guitar anywhere for any occasion as it sounds and looks great. The price is unbeatable for such a good quality guitar. Sincerely, Robert Georgia
