Plug into a Country Rock Classic
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 Richards 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.
The Epiphone Hummingbird PRO Acoustic/Electric guitar does more than simply claim to be “historic” or “vintage” styled – the Hummingbird Acoustic Electric guitar has long stood out in the Gibson and Epiphone lineups as a favourite of some of the world’s most revered singer/songwriters.
