Epiphone Hummingbird Pro Review
Acoustic-Electric Guitar Features:
- Shadow performer preamp
- Shadow Nano Flex pickup
- Solid spruce top
- Mahogany back and sides
- Rosewood fingerboard
- Pearled Parallelogram inlays
The Epiphone version of the Hummingbird is made of spruce and mahogany which gives it a nice rich tone that sounds good even when running through the preamp. The rosewood bridge is enjoyable to play and with the cost being thousands cheaper than the Gibson it is designed after, this guitar is a very nice option for an affordable acoustic guitar that is great quality that outweighs its price. If you love its touch of rosewood, there happens to be acoustic models on the market that are covered in rosewood, like the guitar in our FG830 review.
The Gibson Hummingbird is one of the most iconic guitars ever made and the price matches that reputation.
- They really got the look, sound and feel to be as close as the iconic Gibson Hummingbird without having to make it a high end expensive guitar
- You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to get a Hummingbird model guitar
- The don't have the best pegs but that is replaceable so it's not a huge issue
- This is affordable cause it's produced quickly, which has lead to some inconsistencies, specifically there have been some issues with the pickups and preamps but rarely reported
- Compared to the real Gibson Hummingbird, this Epiphone model is rather thin in it's tone
