[ReviewAZON asin="B000VT95QU" display="inlinepost"]The classic of classic acoustics, the Hummingbird is instantly recognizable, both in look and its warm acoustic sound. Made from Mahogany back and sides, with a Solid Spruce top that actually improves with age, it’s easy to see and hear why this guitar has become a legend. The Classic of Class Acoustics Body Tonewoods Beautiful floral/hummingbird pickgaurd graphic and multi-ring rosette.
The Hummingbird’s top is made from select spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from mahogany. Spruce is the most traditional wood for flat-top soundboards. It’s a strong, light, straight-grained wood, offering a sweet, well-rounded voice and a solid high-end response. Mahogany’s bright, tight sound and excellent presence make it a great choice for a body tonewood. Overall, the Hummingbird delivers a balanced tone, with warm bass and excellent projection. Rosewood Fingerboard with Split Parralelogram Inlays The Hummingbird features a rosewood fingerboard, like so many other instruments–the resilience of this durable wood makes for a balanced and stable fingerboard, giving each chord and note clarity and bite.
The split parralelogram inlays? Well, they just look sharp. Angled Headstock Unlike cheaper designs, all Epiphones feature a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut, delivering more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by “string-tree” gadgets. Serious Looks Sure, sound is important, but you want your instrument to look nice, too. The Hummingbird’s definitely up to the task, with its rich Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish, floral-patterned pickgaurd, and multi-ring rosette. Hardware The Hummingbird features Epiphone chrome tuning machines, to keep your tuning solid. A rosewood bridge takes up the other end.
