An affordable take on an acoustic icon sure to please any fingerpicker.

The Hummingbird is one of the most famous acoustic guitar designs and its preference as the go-to acoustic for rockers like The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, pioneer country rocker Gram Parsons, and multi-platinum artist Sheryl Crow is proof that the Hummingbird is a must-have for its warm but pronounced tone that perfectly compliments voices that have a story to tell. Now with the Limited Edition Epiphone Hummingbird Artist you can get that iconic sound in a no-frills all-tone package.

Rock, Country, and Everything In Between
The Hummingbird-style acoustic has appeared on some of the most famous albums in rock history including Exile On Main Street and the Hummingbird Artist carries on that tradition with a stripped-down, just-the-basics look that still retains all of the Hummingbird’s vital tone and construction features. After all, it’s all about tone and the Hummingbird Artist has got it.

The Hummingbird Artist features a select mahogany body and top for a warm but balanced tone that sounds great played solo or riding on the top of a mix with a stinging electric guitar. The easy fitting hand-set 25.5” mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with eye-catching Split Diamond pearloid inlays. That iconic inlay pattern was a break from tradition in the '60s and is still one of the Hummingbird’s many visual trademarks. The strings pass through a rosewood bridge with a synthetic bone saddle and the soundhole is framed with a tortoise shell style pickguard cut to the classic Hummingbird style. The 1.68 nut-width is ideal for the classic Hummingbird body shape and SlimTaper neck and holds steady for hard rhythm styles as well as fingerpicking.

Features
  • Select mahogany body and neck
  • Neck profile: SlimTaper
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood with pearloid Split Diamond inlays
  • Scale: 24.75”
  • Nut: 1.68”
  • Bridge: Rosewood with synthetic bone saddle
  • Case sold separately

      Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

      I've been playing guitar for 55 years and have played and had every brand of guitar thats out there...Martin,Gibson,Fender,Taylor,Etc...you name it, I've played it...This guitar is just as good as any of them..For the price and the Craftsmanship & playability you can't beat it...Beautiful finish too...Right out of the box wasn't bad...I adjusted the truss rod and put a lighter gauge string on it, played perfect, lost a little bottom end but not much...The key's are made like they used to be with plastic buttons but with one new thing which is better with a 18 to 1 Ratio for more accurate tuning than which most key's are only 14 to 1 Ratio...I would recommend this guitar to anyone...

          Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          I've been playing the guitar for 54 years & have owned & played every brand of a guitar that's out there, Martin,Gibson,Taylor,Gretch,Fender,Etc., you name it, I've played it. And I play all types of Genre's. For the price and Craftmanship & the playability of this guitar,you'll never find another one like it.Right out of the box wasn't bad, adjusted the truss rod a little and put a lighter gauge of strings on it and it played perfect...
          Lost a little bottom end but not much at all really.Like I said its the best buy for your money.I would recommend it to anyone.

          • Quality Finish

          Cons

          • Buzzes Needs Setup

          Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

          Best looking acoustic I've ever seen. Buy some nice tuning pegs and get a pro setup done. I wish it came with jumbo frets. Once these are gone you'll wish you scooped one up.

              Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

              Beautiful fit and finish. The blueburst is very nice. The setup was quite good out of the box. For most users it would be fine but the action was a little higher than I like. I did have it setup at my local guitar center which has an excellent guitar tech to make it perfect. It sounds great. The mahogany makes great tone and projection. This guitar looks and sounds equal or better than guitars costing much more. I now own four Epiphones: this acoustic, a Dove Pro and two electrics, a classic 1966 Casino and a 2014 Les Paul Custom Pro. I do love Epi's. My other acoustics are a Martin HD-28, a 1966 Gibson B-25 and a 1975 Alvarez. Playability and performance of this Hummingbird hangs right in with any of the others. The Martin ($3000) with its Rosewood back and sides is just a tad louder with a bit deeper tone.
              In my opinion you can't go wrong with this guitar.
