      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.

        It came really well packed and fast delivery too.It arrives in perfect condition.The guitar sounds really beautiful and it's fun to play,now I'm practicing more than I used to.I love my new Epi and I think it worth the money.I have a Fender Strat,but I would love to buy an EPI Les Paul Tribute with the Gibson's 57 pick ups it has some very nice reviews and they said that it sounds even crunchier than the Fender Strat.Will see?

          I've always wanted a Gibson Hummingbird Guitar but could never afford one. I decided to try the next best thing. I am totally satisfied with my Epipnone Hummingbird. Sometimes the next best is the best.I play a lot more than I used to now that I have my new Ebony Humming bird.

              Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

              I like the bright clear sound without too much low end rumble over overtones that some jumbos have. I preferred the sound of the hummingbird over thedove and actually tried both the Gibson and Epiphone models at their factory in Nashville several years ago. I was sold on the Epi Hummingbird then for its sound and beautifil color. I have played it in a small cafe setting and a large outside courtyard with a Bill Lawerence soundhole pickup with great results.

              This is not a Gibson by feel, sound, build, or price.
              This guiar looks good and plays good and is a good value nothing special and certainly it does not sound like or play like a Gibson but it is good for what it is

              I've recently purchased the epi dove and was not impressed with the neck problems,but this guitar is as good as it gets.Looks, fit and finish.sound, resonates equally the high and low tones,and the playability is that of a much pricier guitar. I wish the dove was as good.Do not hesitate to try a Hummingbird and I hope everyone has the same results.very fine instrument and beautiful too.

                  Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar:

                  Always interested in classic country music from 50's and 60's. The artists played mainly Gibsons and Martins. After talking my wife into a Martin last July, I knew a Gibson Hummingbird was out of the question for a while. I read the reviews and researched the Epi equivalent. Wow. From the moment I pulled it out of the box, I was in love. it is absolutely beautiful. I played a Gibson bird at a local music store and I can't tell there is $2000.00 plus difference in sound. It is even easier to play than the Martin and that is hard to admit for me and my wife. I am very happy with the guitar. A thanks to Musicians Friend for having it out to me in 3 days even tho I didn't pay for 3 day service. It was like Christmas early.
