OVERVIEW

(Open Box) 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.

Mahogany back and sides
Neck profile: SlimTaper
Fingerboard: Rosewood with pearloid Split Diamond inlays

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.

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.

    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 was skeptical in purchasing this guitar as I have owned other Epiphone guitars in the past that just didn't cut it. This one does cut it. The fit and finish is flawless. After playing it for about 3 hours I knew it was a keeper. I then put a set of new strings on it, replaced the bridge w a Tusq unit that I had one hand and it was shorter than the stock plastic one. I now plays beautiful ! The mahogany body gives it a nice warm tone that I was looking for. Mine is the blue burst model and it looks stunning in the light. The tuners feel tight and after the new strings stretched out, it stays in tune quite well.

              Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

              I have been playing guitar for 45 years. In that time I have played mostly electric. I have owned some really good acoustics as well but did not expect the quality this Hummingbird delivers. The highs and lows are great and the volume is really good. I did nothing to the guitar out of the box except play it and I am very impressed to get a guitar of this quality at this price range. The construction looks awesome, beautiful finish with a great binding. Overall a great instrument at a great price.

                Experienced drummer. Bought this guitar as a starter for my 15 year old daughter. She plays clarinet in marching band but wants to branch out with something different. Bought it as Christmas present but she hasn't received it yet. I was excited to get it out of box. Finish was flawless. Came pretty much set up and ready to play. I know a few basic chords and guitar sounded fantastic. Neck is nice and slim and a little bit shorter than standard. Think it will fit her perfectly and can't wait to see the look on her face when she opens it!

                  Right out of the box, this guitar is striking. Nicely wrapped and packaged. Not a scratch or ding. This guitar is a 24.75 scale, almost an inch shorter than the standard 25.5, so the feel is close and comfortable. The only thing I've done was replace the strings. I went with a Martin lights and the sound is really good. Nice warm lows and vocal highs. This is a more than basic, starter guitar for a basic, starter price. This is my second acoustic and I'm thinking about getting the electric/acoustic. I love it. Don't pass this one up.

                  Mine came with lacquer drips dried around the top of sound hole. Fret sprouts extend beyond width of neck are sharp and would require crown and level. Fret sprout is either a QC or moisture issue as the neck wood continues to dry shrinking wood. Action very high and after adjusting neck relief only additional way to lower action is filing bridge bottom. Laminated exterior wood. Sending this back. Not worth a second chance on a better one. I would avoid this model. Musicians Friend Customer service exceeds excellent.

                    Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird Artist Acoustic Guitar:

                    I am mostly into progressive jazz and modern contemporary Christian music. Wanted an instrument for writing scores and playing them to critique myself without having to rig up my amplified instruments. This instrument was truly attractive as all the reviews seem to agree, but I was not impressed by the tonal quality or the playing action. I could have corrected the playing action with modification but that would have been technically causing the instrument to be used. As for the tone I personally found it to sound like a tin can(maybe a banjo?) so I returned it and ordered my first choice a nylon string classical instrument. I have an old guitar, steel string, that actually sounded better probably because of its age and lighter tru-oil finish.

                          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.

                            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!

                                The base for a great guitar is here, but the cost and materials is holding it back. Overall construction is on par with typical Gibson quality (you might find a sharp fret here and there). Out of the box, the Hummingbird has a jangly/tinny sound...not much low end. The action is also set fairly high at the factory, and the cheap tuning machines do not stay in tune very well (especially the G and D strings). So...off the bat, I would not recommend this instrument.

                                HOWEVER, if you spend some money in upgrades, you can turn this inexpensive guitar into a premium guitar fairly easily.
                                1) Replace the nut: this guitar comes with a terrible plastic nut. Change the nut to a bone nut.
                                2) Same for the saddle. Change to a bone saddle. Also consider installing a Fishman Thinline pickup at this point if your budget can handle it. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/fishman-saddle-acoustic-guitar-pickup
                                3) While you're at it, switch to wood string pegs (they're cheap and look better)
                                4) IF YOU'RE TECHNICALLY INCLINED: Replace the synthetic wood bridge with a wood one. It's glued to the body, so this will involve using a heat knife. If you're not sure what you're doing or can't get help, skip this.
                                5) Change the tuning machines from the no-name brand to Grovers. The screw holes are compatible, and your guitar will finally stay in tune.
                                6) Once finished, get the guitar professionally set up. Once the intonation is set, the action is lowered, and the frets are polished, it will make a HUGE difference.

                                That's it- do these things and you will have a great looking, EXTREMELY playable instrument.

                                    If you're on a budget, this is a great guitar. I've had mine now about 4 or 5 years and love it. Out of the box it sounded flat at first. First thing I did was install brass bridge pins and I made a new bride of Ipe (An extremely hard wood) Once you get the action where you like it, it's a fun guitar. Not super loud but has a nice mellow ring and feels good in your hands. With the brass bride pins and ipe bridge it almost gives it a zingy woody sound, idk how to explain it. Give it a try.
