Epiphone Masterbilt Hummingbird Electro Acoustic Guitar - Aged Cherry Sunburst Gloss
An affordable homage to the original Gibson Hummingbird.
Epiphone's ‘Inspired by Gibson’ series is full of amazing versions of some of the finest Gibson models ever made. Each guitar accurately looks, sounds and feels like the Gibson it emulates, offering you all of the amazing features and functionality that the high-price versions possess.
Just like Gibson’s, the Epiphone Masterbilt Hummingbird is a beautiful acoustic guitar with a large square-shoulder dreadnought shape and an instantly recognisable and now iconic pickguard. This is a big guitar with a loud, proud sound and a power and projection that will blow your socks off. It also has a gentler side that will impress your audiences, producing fine, articulate sounds when required. This is a versatile and dynamic guitar ideal for players that perform in a variety of styles.
Constructed from Mahogany and capped with a Sitka Spruce top, the Epiphone Hummingbird generates a sound as close to its high-end namesake as you could possibly get. The warm, strong fundamental tone of Mahogany is complemented by the vibrancy of the Spruce, resulting in a voice that covers a wide tonal spectrum. The Epiphone Masterbilt Hummingbird also features a rounded “C” neck with a 24.74” scale fretboard with medium-jumbo frets that provide a smooth and comfortable playing experience.
All of the exquisite Hummingbird properties are present in this guitar, including classy mother of pearl split parallelogram inlays, gold Epiphone deluxe machine heads, a bone nut and saddle and attractive ivory-colour pins. Epiphone has equipped the Masterbilt Hummingbird with a Fishman Sonicore pickup and Sonitone preamp system to faithfully reproduce this acoustics finely-balanced tones. As well as amplifying your sound, it also provides an EQ control that lets you refine your tone and a handy onboard tuner too.
