The Epiphone Hummingbird PRO acoustic / electric guitar propels the legendary “Hummingbird” into the 21st century with the new preamp. Introduced for the first time in 1960, the square-headed hummingbird quickly became a classic thanks to Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, who used a Hummingbird to punctuate the first successes of Stones like "Satisfaction", "Play With Fire" and "Under My Thumb ”. There are also many iconic photographs of Keith using a Hummingbird in sessions devoted to Exile on Main Street, Goat's Head Soup and Sticky Fingers. Today, the Hummingbird is still the acoustics of choice for rockers like Noel Gallagher, Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock when they need a rhythmic guitar with soft action with a superb "woody" sound full of character. The Hummingbird PRO Acoustic / Electric alone can stand out in a crowd with an all acoustic group or a picking evening with its soft and balanced tone. Now, with thepreamp, the Hummingbird PRO can be connected and stored on all stages. Solid Tonewood: The Hummingbird PRO Acoustic / Electric has a solid spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex ripening wood that begins to breathe and improve with age. The more you play, the better it sounds! The body and neck are made from selected mahogany. The neck has a 25.5 inch scale and is attached to the body with a glued dovetail joint. The neck profile is the classic SlimTaper ™ D profile from Epiphone. The rosewood fingerboard has pearl parallelogram inlays, 20 medium frets, a 12-inch radius and a 1.68-inch neck. There is a single layer white binding around the neck and the slanted checkered doll bears the "Epiphone" logo in white. The upper body has a 5-ply white and black binding, while the back of the body has a single-ply white binding, similar to vintage originals.
