OVERVIEW

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 spruce top and mahogany body 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
  • Spruce top
  • Mahogany back and sides
  • 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

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...

This is a nice little beginner guitar. I like this shorter scale that is more true to the original Hummingbird specs. Easier to bend the strings and a great blues guitar for students.

When I unboxed the guitar I checked the fit and finish and found nothing terrible. However the action was so high it was unplayable past the 5th fret. The nut also needed attention. With some work I was able to get it where it should be. A good setup on these overseas guitars are pretty much a given but this one was a bit of a chore.

All in all after a good and lengthy setup this guitar turned out great. Very pleasant tone and easy to play.

          Read a lot of reviews prior to purchase. My only complaint is blue burst was 1 st choice but not available till May. Money well spent! I had planned to have it setup on arrival but setup was great with easy low action. Sounds like other reviews but the guitar plays like it cost much more than my purchase price. All my purchases with MF have been pleasant and uneventful. Will enjoy Hummingbird for years to come,

          i got mine a few weeks ago and i love it. it was a decent set up right out of the box, i just changed strings and a few more things to my preference, and it was perfect. it has a beautiful finish, not one imperfection!. the sound its very full and rich, and it's very easy and fun to play.

            I have played a Gibson Hummingbird priced at 10X this one and the Epi Hummingbird Artist is just about on par with it in terms of sound and construction quality. I still can't figure out how they can make a guitar this good at this price.
            The finish is stunning and the action is remarkably agile. I am so glad I treated myself to this excellent guitar.

                Have played off and on for years and have played a variety (Simon & Patrick, Washburn, Alverez) but this guitar is by far the most fun to play. It's beautiful (no finish issues at all) and the sound is warm (no buzzing at all). The action and neck width are such that I can play barre chords with no problem, which I can't say for every acoustic I've played. I primarily use mine to give concerts in my living room but I could see this doing well in a small venue as well. Don't pass this one up. The quality is amazing for the price!
