Description

The Epiphone Hummingbird EC Studio limited-edition acoustic-electric guitar brings the legendary country/rock "Hummingbird" into the 21st century with the Fishman Sonitone preamp and Sonicore pickup system. 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 EC Studio limited-edition 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 Fishman Sonitone preamp and Sonicore pickup system, this limited-edition Hummingbird EC Studio can be plugged in and hold its own on any size stage.
