Once again. Because of the price, and the ease of chording. This guitar stands at the top with others in this price range. The looks of it is a work of art, and they even have one in a tobacco burst if thats your thing. Keep in mind that this needs a good case/gig bag, and one is not included. Because it plays so well, if I were going to be taking it all around town I would invest in a good gig bag or hardshell case. This is a guitar worth keeping in nice condition, and without a good bag you won't be able to do that. This may not work for you, but give it a try any way.
I really wasn't sure how to rate this area, since there were many in the same price range that could also be played as an electric. My review is based on an accoustic guitar, and nothing else.
My Grandson decided he wanted to learn to play the guitar, and since I can play and he can't. It was my job to find the best acoustic within this price range, so I remembered how much my fingers hurt on the Martin D-18 my Dad taught me on. While there is no way from needing the tips of your fingers being nub while learning to play, you can make it a little better on the student with a guitar that doesn't kill your fingers when you play. As I set in the acoustic guitar room, I had 6 guitars around me that I had tried. An Ibanez, Fender, Takamime, Yamaha, and then I saw this Epiphone. To be honest, I thought it would be blown away by one of the other models. Since all of my guitars are much higher end in cost, and I only have one acoustic. I'm used to playing the top dollar models, and after playing a few of these, I saw why. However, when I played this Epiphone I couldn't believe the ease of play and sound. In order to see if I was right, I asked a few guitar players to pick each guitar and tell me their thoughts. Keep in mind that I didn't tell them my thoughts, nor which guitar I liked the best. In order to have a full amount of reviews in different age catagories. I had 3 good playing pickers below the age of 20, then a couple more in my age category, which is over 55. Each one of them picked out this Epiphone. The only downside, and I don't see it as one. If your looking for a guitar with a eletric input switch, this doesn't have it. Having a recording studio, never do I record an acoustic over an amp unless the song calls for it. I always mic the acoustic with a phantom power mic so I can get true acoustic sound.
This is a great guitar for the money, and the only reason I didn't give it a nothing is perfect. Nevertheless, for the price this is as close to perfection as your going to get. In order to establish my credibility. I have 2 Fender Strats (Jimmy Vaughn & American Deluxe), Fender American Deluxe Telecaster, Gibson LP Classic and double cut-away, Gibson ES-335, a pre China made Epiphone with mini humbuckers, and a PRS McCarty. I think I'm pretty well qualified to review how a guitar plays. If your wanting a lower end guitar with a higher quality sound, look no further. It played so much better than both the Fender and Ibanez, and only the Takamime came close to it.

Nice guitar but not great. Overall construction is good. Get a lot of compliments on the color, etc. Ya got to admit the cherry sunburst and embellished pick guard does make for a nice looking guitar.

When I put it in to be setup the overall construction was pretty good except for 3 high frets that were fixed easily for 35 bucks. I found this guitar stays in tune pretty well also.

The strings that came on it are terrible, trebly and twangy. Put Martin FX130 custom light strings on it and it got a much more favorable rich sound but a tiny bit of fret buzz. Went to Martin SP7100 (12) strings and now its perfect for practice and jamming with a buddy that plays a pretty mean harp.

I just picked up a Martin DX1RAE and of course there is no comparison in construction nor sound/tone so if I were to look at this purchase with the old 20/20 hindsight I would save my money on the Epi Hummingbird and throw it into a nice Martin.

Buy This Guitar...Seriously !!!

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

Seriously.....This guitar blew me away!!! I own a Martin 00028EC, Taylor 314CE, and a couple of others, and I would say that I enjoy playing this acoustic every bit as much as all my other guitars. I find myself playing if actually more then I play my others. The action is set up perfectly right out of the box and the sound is incredible. I couldn't believe it. What a deal for the price!!
Believe me...You won't be sorry buying this guitar.
I have played in bands almost 30 years and I absolutely love this guitar.

Much success!!

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased a hummingbird after looking at them for a long time. I own a few high dollar guitars and some low end (budget) guitars also. I like the setup on this guitar. The action is nice and low, but not low enough to buzz, and the sound is very nice also. Seems to play very easily for me. The cherry sunburst has always been an eye catcher for me. I would see one from a distance and have to take a closer look. This one attracted me in the same way. Just looks and plays great.

Great Guitar

By Tommy White

from Tennessee

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I've been playing for over 30 years, sometimes for money somtimes for fun. Right out of the box this guitar was ready to play with just a little tuning. I have played and owned many brands. I purchased this Hummingbird and to my surprize it plays as good as my Gibsons J45. This guitar has a very nice sound and easy to play. It could be used from beginer to pro.

Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar review

By John Mitchell

from TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I was honestly shocked when I recieved my Hummingbird Acoustic. I have had it for a week and play it every day. I can't seem to put it down. ( A little of my backgound: I have played in bands for over 30 years and currently own Martin, Taylor and Takaminine acoustics and several Fender Strats.) I just felt like having something I could plunk around on that wasn't real expensive so I purchased this acoustic. WHAT a SURPRIZE!!! For the money, this is the best made guitar I have found! The action is great and it stays in tune and the sound is nice and deep without losing any highs. I can't seem to put this guitar down. I HIGHLY recommend this guitar. I PROMISE...you can't go wrong.
The quality you get for this price is unbelievable.

BUY THIS GUITAR!

By Mark Hayes

from Down South

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

You get a 45/45 guarantee. Musicians friend will not be beat on the price and you can return it if it's not right! BUY THE GUITAR
I have owned Yamaha, Hohner, and Fender guitars. Each had their own sound and spirit, and I have no regrets about any of them. HOWEVER.....my Hummingbird was my first brand new guitar. My two buddies own Simon Patrick and Metcalf guitars (look those names up and see just what kind of quality they are!)......and both tell me they like the looks of mine better! I'm not exactly Garth Brooks, but I can guarantee you that this is one purchase you'll never regret. STOP THINKING. BUY THIS GUITAR RIGHT NOW AND FALL IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

The structure of the Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar produces a rich, full sound, and the color combination is beautiful. If there is any thing I didn't like it was that the location of the strap buttons do not allow the guitar to remain balanced and the headstock drops straight down if not holding the neck. But, I would recommend this guitar for anyone, from beginners like me to the pros.
When I first wanted to order the Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar it was not yet in stock, so ordered the Epiphone Limited Edition Hummingbird Artist because I didn't want to wait, but then changed my mind and exchanged it for the Hummingbird as soon as I received it. I am really glad I did. I love the Hummingbird. Right out of the box it blew me away for it's beauty, volume and tone. I have only owned a low cost beginner guitar before this, so can't compare it to other better guitars, but I couldn't be more satisfied with it. All of my family, many of whom own and play guitar, have been very impressed with my choice of the Hummingbird. All of my experiences in dealing with Musician's Friend have been pleasent for the value and service.
The structure and appearance of the Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar is of outstanding quality.
The value for the cost is fantastic. The cost allowed me to get a quality instrument at a price I could afford.

Great Guitar for The Price...

By Dan Pereira

from U.S.A.

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased this guitar because I wanted an inexpensive go-to guitar for songwriting. Turns out I've been using it for recording, sounds great mic'd up, and plays really well too. It's got a lot of character and warmth in its tone. Sometimes it's hit and miss with inexpensive, foreign-built guitars but this one is a definate hit.
Nice bridge, tuners, inlays, and bindngs. I also like the strap pegs that allow a normal guitar strap to be used instead of an accoustic strap.
The guitar seams sturdy, action is divine with no buzzing or dead notes.
I would expect to pay much more for a guitar like this. It's a great value.

A Beautiful Instrument

By Matt Lindquist

from SLC, UT

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

I just got this guitar last week, and let me tell you if you are in the market for something that is affordable but professional and a collectors piece, this is the best bang for your buck!!! Its got grover tuners which alone make it sweet plus the picture does not do the guitar justice at all. Its solid spruce with solid mahogony back and sides and that alone makes the tone of this perfect! I bought this to learn on and I am so stoked on it. Everyone who has played it is in love with it and jealous that its mine and don't hesitate at all, just buy it. Trust me you won't be let down!!!

Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar by Epiphone

By Gerald Ely

from Michigan

Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

If you want a beautiful hummingbird guitar Epiphone makes an affordable unit but if you have lots of money get the World famous Gibson.
This is truly a beautiful guitar I got the Heritage Cherry Sunburst. I purchased this guitar for my granddaughter, for her up coming birthday. The guitar sounded pretty good right out of the box but it had high pitched tinny sound, so I replaced the strings and that sweetened up the tone.
This Epiphone Hummingbird was made in China and set-up in the USA. The nut is to high on the Low E side the High E side is perfect. So I will have to take this guitar in to have aprofessional set-up the action so the guitar is playable.
Compared to my favorite guitar my Hohner HW-300 series it is no match in sound quality but in looks there is no comparison, the Hummingbird is pretty and it will look good on my granddaughter.
