Epiphone Hummingbird Studio Solid Top Acoustic/Electric Faded Cherry
There are few things more mesmerizing than watching a hummingbird. The Hummingbird Studio Acoustic/Electric updates the 60s classic with a solid spruce top, mahogany neck and body, Grover Rotomatic 18:1 ratio tuners, traditional binding and historic Hummingbird pickguard, and Fishman Sonitone electronics.
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, Goats 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 Studio 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 Fishman™ Sonitone pickup system, the Hummingbird Studio can plug-in and hold its own on any size stage.
