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 Rollings Stones hits like “Satisfaction,” “Play With Fire,” and “Under My Thumb.” There are also many iconic 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 stand out in a crowd with an all-acoustic band or picking party with its sweet, balanced tone. And 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.
