Epiphone Masterbilt Hummingbird Electro Acoustic Guitar - Aged Natural Antique Gloss
Epiphone’s latest homage to the Gibson Hummingbird.
Epiphone's ‘Inspired by Gibson’ range of guitars features accurate, high-quality, yet affordable versions of some of the finest Gibson models ever made. Built to Gibson’s spec and approved by them, each guitar accurately captures the look, sound and feel of the Gibson it emulates and offers all of the amazing features and functionality that the high-price versions possess.
Just like the Gibson model, the Epiphone Masterbilt Hummingbird is a stunning acoustic guitar with a large square-shoulder dreadnought body shape and an iconic pickguard design. It has a loud, proud sound and projects with plenty of power but also possesses a gentler side when required, able to produce fine, articulate sounds ideal for styles such as fingerpicking. This is a versatile and dynamic guitar ideal for players that perform in a variety of styles.
To generate the same tones as its high-end namesake, the Epiphone Hummingbird is constructed from Mahogany capped with a Sitka Spruce top. This is a traditional mixture of tonewoods that covers a wide tonal spectrum, with the warm, strong fundamental tone of Mahogany complemented perfectly by the vibrant life of the Spruce. 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.
