OVERVIEW

A country/rock classic plugs in.

The Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric guitar brings the legendary country/rock "Hummingbird" into the 21st century with the new Shadow ePerformer preamp and Shadow NanoFlex pickup system.

First introduced in 1960, the square shouldered Hummingbird quickly became a classic thanks to Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones, who used a Hummingbird for rhythm on early Stones hits like "Satisfaction," "Play With Fire," and "Under My Thumb." There are also many classic photographs of Keith using a Hummingbird on sessions for Exile on Main Street, Goat's Head Soup, and Sticky Fingers. Today, the Hummingbird is still a go-to acoustic for rockers like Noel Gallagher, Sheryl Crow, and Kid Rock when they need a rhythm guitar with smooth action and superb "woody" tone that's full of character.

On its own, the Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric can drive an all-acoustic band or be front and center at a picking party with its sweet, balanced tone. Now with the Shadow ePerformer preamp and Shadow NanoFlex pickup system, The Hummingbird PRO can plug-in and hold its own on any size stage.

Solid Spruce Tonewood
The Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric features a solid spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breathe and improve with age. The more you play, the better it sounds! The body and neck are made from select mahogany. The Hummingbird PRO neck has a classic SlimTaper D profile and features a 24.75" scale and is attached to the body with a glued-in dovetail joint. The rosewood fingerboard has pearloid parallelogram inlays, 20 medium frets, a 12" radius, and a 1.68" nut. There is single ply white binding on the fingerboard and 5-ply white & black binding on the body top while the back of the body has single ply white binding. The Hummingbird PRO has the classic sloped dovewing headstock has the "Epiphone" logo in white.

The Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric's reverse belly rosewood bridge has a compensated saddle for smooth action and intonation. The Shadow NanoFlex pickup system is under the saddle and the classic Hummingbird/flower tortoise shell style pickguard is easy to spot on stage or across a room.

Shadow Pickup System
Epiphone and Shadow Germany have worked together for over a decade at perfecting ways to amplify an acoustic guitar on stage. The Hummingbird PRO is just one of many Epiphone guitars that feature a cutting edge pickup system that can handle any size gig and still produce an "acoustic" sound. The Hummingbird PRO's controls for the Shadow ePerformer Preamp are on the upper bout and include controls for Master Volume, Treble and Bass EQ, Mute, and a Dynamics control adjusted via a frequency curve. There is also a low batter indicator. The preamp is powered by two 2032 batteries. The output jack and strap locks are nickel and the Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric is strung at the Epiphone factory with time-tested D'Addario Phosphor (12-53) strings.

Wow! I'm very impressed with this guitar. Out of the box tuned it up and, played it for 2 hours. Darned near perfect setup, action,intonation, no sharp frets, electronics perform flawlessly. Played for awhile acousticly remained in tune perfectly. Plugged into my Fishman Artist and, I could not belive the full rich and, powerful sounds that I heard! I have a Seagull Entourage, a Takamine and, an Ovation roundback and, a Taylor all acoustic electric instruments and, this Epi Humminbird will hang with any of these guitars with no problem. I know why that I own several Epi guitars, can't beat the price and, for what you spend the return is very pleasing. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a reasonably priced instrument that gives superb performance!

    Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing guitar for 50 years and also play bass, ukulele and mandolin. I've had good and bad instruments throughout my life in various price ranges and qualities. That includes Epiphone, Fender, Takamine, Martin, Yamaha and on and on. My first Epi was a black EJ-200EC and has been my go-to guitar for my live gigs since I bought it 10 years ago. I bought the old style Epi Hummingbird on line a couple of years after that, put an undersaddle pickup in it and ended up selling it recently to a friend who's son needed a good beginner instrument. I used that money to buy this one and I do not regret it...well, maybe just a bit. I'm partial to vintaged and aged, being that myself.

    You've read the warnings about buying on line and that CAN be true, but since I live in Japan most of my guitar buying IS done on line. I've never had a problem with the 20+ instruments I've purchased on line over the years. With Epiphone you never have to worry. The guitars are all good and this one is worth twice the price.

    Some folks think "set up" means "in tune" when it comes out of the box. Stringed instruments are normally shipped with slacked strings to prevent damage from changing atmospheric conditions. The fact that this guitar is just "slightly out of tune" out of the box means that Epiphone did the setup (adjust action, inspect neck, neck relief, etc.) in the USA after it made its overseas transit. That said, ALL guitars will eventually need some sort of setup and usually on a regular basis. It's a good idea to learn how to do it yourself. There's lots of resources on line. (And the more guitars you have the more you get to practise!)

    That said, the setup is, for my preferences, perfect.

    The Hummingbird is designed to have a bright tone and bright it is. Don't try and compare it to other guitars because it is what is. The old "apples and oranges" thing. The resonance is great and the electroncs are as well. Intonation is dead on. Mine gets run through a Loudbox Mini and a PA and sounds just as natural amped as it does unplugged, which is semi-rare. No, it doesn't have an installed tuner. Suck it up and spend an extra 10 on a Snark.

    Fit and finish on this instrument is excellant. Top and back are bookmatched very nicely, frets are smooth, inlays gorgeous and the tuners smooth and accurate.

    While I gig two or three times a month at various venues where I live in Japan I'm not a pro and don't pretend to be. Just like I know that expensive golf clubs won't make me a better golfer, expensive guitars won't make me a better musician. But I DO want instruments that are reliable and sound good if not great.

    This is the PERFECT guitar for the beginner and the price is right. Invest in this Hummingbird for the young one and let them have something to be proud of. They'll want to hold on to it even as their skills increase and they start pestering you for a Taylor.

    Also, don't confuse this guitar with the previous issues of the Epiphone Hummingbird. While still an excellant guitar, the construction is different as is the color and the old one didn't come with electronics.

    The bottom line is that you can't go wrong with this guitar for the price.

      Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've had this guitar for less than a week, but I've owned and played many acoustic guitars, so I think I can give a fair review. First of all, this is a beautiful guitar. It's called "faded cherry," but it's more of a faded orange, which I actually like better. The finish is stunning. Everyone who's seen it loves it and/or is jealous.

      Unlike many of the reviews I've read (on many different websites), mine was not "perfect out of the box." The action was set very low, but there was a lot of fret buzz on the low end (the "E" and "A" strings) and on the "B" string, especially on the 3rd and 5th frets. I contemplated returning the guitar, but I had already fallen in love with it and didn't want to wait for a new one (especially since they are/were out of stock), so I decided to see what I could do with it. I needed to loosen the truss rod a bit to get rid of the buzz, and, even then, the "B" string still had a slight buzz on the 3rd and 5th frets. I thought the guitar might have some dead frets, but when I put a new set of Martin SPs on, the problems with fret buzz on the "B" string, to my great relief, disappeared completely, so it must have been the factory strings. Still the action is a tad higher than some might like if they do a lot of lead playing up and down the neck. Since I often strum very hard and mostly play in the first few positions, it isn't a problem for me. It is still very, very playable, just not perfect. But, this is not a Gibson, so perfection can't be expected. The intonation is just about perfect up and down the neck, and the tone is great in every position on the guitar.

      Speaking of tone, this guitar has a wonderful, full, warm tone. It's the best sounding acoustic guitar I've ever had, and I've had some more expensive ones. I can't say I've heard many, if any, acoustics that sound better. It projects well and, I think, has strong lows and ringing highs. It sounded good with the factory strings, but even better with a new set of Martins (medium/12's). And what really makes this guitar such a bargain is that it sounds fantastic plugged in. Many acoustics lose their "acoustic" sound when played through an amp, but the Hummingbird Pro retains its "acoustic" sound when plugged in, whether fingerpicking or strumming. They've done a fantastic job with the pick-ups. I just wish they would have used the version with the onboard tuner. I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for it. It would have been useful.

      Overall, this guitar is a steal for the price. It is certainly not the quality of a Gibson Hummingbird, but that costs ten times as much. After reading 15 reviews about how they were perfect out of the box, I was a little disappointed with the fret buzz. After a little adjusting, though, I couldn't be happier. I can't wait to gig with it.

      Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I tried to buy a guitar from MS, but it just didn't work out...I first bought a Epiphone EJ-200CE and the electronics didn't work properly. Sent it back. Then out of stock for that model, so I needed a acoustic/electric for a festival coming up. Bought a Hummingbird Pro Ebony... this one had a big piece of sandpaper still on the inside of the guitar from the factory... and the electronics did not work properly either. Sent it back. Got another Hummingbird Pro.. the low E string inlet on the bridge was damaged. I ended up getting a Hummingbird Pro from a used shop in St Louis. MS needs better "from factory to customer" quality checks.

        The Hummingbird Pro is an excellent guitar for the money. I own Martins, Gibsons, Blueridges and other Ephiphone guitars ....this guitar holds it's own against all of them. I bought one and sent it to Oklahoma, where I visit often. I liked it so much that I bought another one to keep at my home in Florida. It is my "go to" guitar. Both Hummingbirds were playable right out of the box. Buy it .....you won't be disappointed!

          Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          As I assume with many/most Epi Hummingbird owners, I've always dreamed of owning the Gibson version but it's just never in the budget. I needed an acoustic with a pickup and decided to give this a try.

          I couldn't be more pleased. This is an absolutely beautiful guitar! The fit & finish is almost perfect - there are tiny cosmetic imperfections here and there, but nothing major, and nothing that I won't gladly overlook on a $3XX guitar that plays and sounds like this one.

          The setup out of the box is nearly perfect - I haven't touched it yet, 3 weeks in. The strings were very fresh and the action is a good balance between playability and lack of buzz - though my guitar will get some buzz if I hit it hard, which I tend not to do.

          The neck profile is a nice, chunky "D" which I find incredibly comfortable up and down the fretboard, for strumming or finger picking.

          The tone has a nice balance - not thin sounding at all, and not dominated by treble or bass or midrange. This does not have a big, booming bass response - which is fine, as that's not what I was looking for - but it has plenty of warmth and depth. This guitar is beautiful in every way.

          Much is made online about comparing Epis to their Gibson big brothers. It's not in any way an apples-to-apples comparison. A $3XX guitar vs. a $3000+ guitar is never going to be fair.

          The real question is: what are you looking for from this guitar, and does it deliver? For me, this guitar is an absolute steal. It plays and sounds much, much better than a $3XX guitar has a right to.

          So don't worry about what's on the headstock - far too many players are fixated on labels - and you may well find a guitar such as this that speaks to you. This guitar turns my crank in so many ways, and I could not be happier.

          Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          After playing my Epi PR-150 for several months before I received the Hummingbird Pro, the Hummingbird sounded and felt pretty flat on bass response. The over all tone was no better than my PR-150. But the PR-150 has a superb, full tone including very nice bass feel. The Hummingbird has plug in capability which is a definite plus. I can't wait to test it on my Peavy Escort 6000 personal p.a. system. I removed the classic pick guard in favor of my art. I hand painted the new art on this fire orange beauty. I thought 'cherry' was red, not red-orange. Fire orange is the proper name for the color of sunburst finish. Hello. The greatest asset of this guitar is not it's color nor it's sound. The thing that grabs my attention and appreciation of this instrument is it's craftsmanship and finish. I have played the best and most expensive guitars. This guitar's tone and sound is certainly no disgrace. It is as good as it's price and considerably better. It's craftsmanship and finish are as good as the best. It is perfect in that respect. I will use this guitar until either it or I bite the dust. I like it. Not saying that I won't play another just for a little variety. It is a very good guitar. Feels like it will outlast Mike Freedom. That is saying a lot.

            I needed a decent acoustic to do some home recording/playing/jamming. Was tired of always having to keep my amp in check while jamming with friends who played acoustic, PLUS...you just start jonesing for that good ol' acoustic tone. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but wanted some beauty and versatility so I rolled the dice and ordered The Hummingbird sight-unseen expecting that an inexpensive Epiphone was OBVIOUSLY going to need some work right out of the box. WRONG!!!!! Was AMAZED at how well this guitar looks, feels, plays and SOUNDS after a literal 30-40 seconds tuning. The tone is classic, the feel is so comfortable, and the sound? Well let's just say that this may be the best three-bills I have ever spent in my life. Epiphone - I apologize for seriously under-estimating you! Never been the guy to say it but, "Don't even hesitate. Just buy it!".

              This guitar feels and plays like more expensive guitars. The action, intonation, and tuning hold are excellent. Out of the box, this guitar needed no adjustments. The tuning heads are fantastic as well in that they are very smooth and provide great fine control. For the price, it totally exceeded my expectations. The sound is not quite as rich and full as my more expensive guitars but that was expected given it is less than half the price. Finally, it feels well built and is so comfortable to play and I just love the finish.

              Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I have been playing Martin guitars in live performance for years and I have never cared for the onboard electronics of guitars I've tried from Martin, Taylor or Gretsch. The Epiphone Hummingbird Pro is an exception. Mine is a smooth playing guitar. The intonation was just right, out of the box. That surprised me. The fret ends were sharp upon arrival, mainly due to dryness. I gave the guitar a good deal of humidity and a little lemon oil for the fretboard for a couple of weeks and the sharp fret ends and feel of the fingerboard improved. I think the action could be a little lower and comfortable for me and will have a guitar tech adjust that. (Practically any guitar will benefit from a professional set up.) The onboard electronics are pretty good and with a little tweaking between them and the EQ on my Mackie PA head, I have been able to get a good tone for live performance. The black Hummingbird Pro is a visual delight. If you're looking for a guitar suited for rhythm and vocal accompaniment, this is a very nice, low cost option.

                I've played Gibsons that cost thousands , this guitar is only hundreds I don't know how they do it plays great, and sounds amazing. The electronics are great, if it's just for you playing or you're on the stage this guitar will not disappoint.

                  First of all, this guitar is beautiful, and well finished. Feels like an Epiphone, slightly wide neck. Sounds like an Epiphone, that is, a rich tone with plenty of meat to it. This is easily the best guitar in this price range I've ever played. I got lucky I guess, I bought it unseen having never tried one, and I love it. This is my new go-to steel string, for now. 100% satisfied. I recommend Dean Markley Helix-X strings.

                    Beautiful attractive finish , color and pick guard.
                    Sounds great plugged in or unplugged.
                    It did take some tweaking to get it to were I was satisfied and happy though. Fortunately I have a lot of experience in that regard.
                    Overall a bargain at this price and compares to other similar guitars costing 3 or 4 times the cost.
                    It's a keeper for me !
                    I would give it a solid 4 1/2 stars, and I'am a fussy guy.

                      Comments about Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                      I love Epiphone. The Hummingbird Pro is a sweet guitar. It's pretty. (Ok, not like the Gibson versions that cost thousands). But, the fade is pretty good on this finish. Some burst finishes on lower-priced guitars can be flat out ugly because the fade is often done poorly. This one is pretty good. It's a little on the too-glossy side for some, I'm sure. I don't mind it. When I look at it, I just want to pick it up and play it. And it plays well too. It's easiest to compare this guitar to the Epiphone Dove Pro. The Dove is also very nice and is probably richer and punchier in tone and volume. However I think the Hummingbird is more versatile, and works better with a slide and for playing single notes. I think the Hummingbird has a nice, elegant sound. A solid spruce top, mahogany body and neck, and Grover tuners! The electronics have been very satisfying. It stays in tune. Some may prefer to have the action lowered by a pro/luthier but mine was playable out of the box (after a slight adjustment on the truss rod and tuning it). Overall I think this guitar is an easy 5 stars for the value.

                        Needed a guitar that I could let my son take out of the house to his first apartment. Did not want to give up any of mine because of value, sentimental reasons etc...I bought this gently used from MF and it arrived in 3 days looking brand new. Tuned it up and it plays great, sounds great and is very easy on the eyes. Not my first epi or gibson and I have been pleased with all of them. QC at epi is as good as any out there. Fit and finish are great, frets are perfect on the ends. Strums awesome and packs a punch when you dig in. Perfect for it's purpose and I won't cry if it's stolen out of the apartment. Nice job Epiphone as usual, and as always Musicians Friend is great.

                          This guitar sounds fantastic, looks beautiful and plays just wonderful. Sounds great through an amp or just by it's self. The action is great. I did lower the strings with a turn on the truss rod and it's perfect for me. Stays in turn for days. I really love it. MF did a great packing job.

                            I purchased this for my daughter in college, where I didn't want to spend much but wanted something decent for her to play. To my surprise, this showed up and went far beyond decent. As a worship band leader, I play a USA made Gibson Hummingbird Pro (north of $2K) and I was blown away at the similarity of feel, sound, action, etc. considering it cost almost 10x less. I know that sounds crazy and my Gibson is definitely superior in quality, but the Epiphone far exceeded what I had expected. It was hard to put down. The ONLY issue I found was that a certain cable wouldn't for some reason activate the electronics and I thought it was the guitar, until I plugged in another cable. The cable (monster btw) that didn't work with the Epiphone worked fine with other instruments, so I was convinced the Shadow system was DOA. So just be careful to find a cable that works :) once it's "on", the Shadow electronic system actually sounds pretty good. In the end, it looks great, she's happy and for what I paid, I won't stress about the wear and tear of what college kids do to equipment.

                              Let me just start by saying i love Epiphone. I have had 4 of their guitars, all great. I had bought this guitar as a fun jamming guitar. Not for anything serious, just to have fun. The guitar is beautiful, but the sound, not so much. I don't know why, but it sounds terrible. Maybe i just received the bad one out of the bunch, but i am extremely disappointed in this guitar and will return it as soon as i find the time.
