The Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Hummingbird 12-string acoustic-electric guitar is part of the “Inspired by Gibson” collection that closely adheres to the classic Kalamazoo style. First introduced in 1960, the Hummingbird was featured on countless classic rock records. It continues to be an inspiration for players today. This special instrument produces a clear, bright tone with a beautifully balanced sonic range.
Epiphone spec’d the Inspired by Gibson Hummingbird 12-string acoustic-electric guitar with all the right stuff. It’s an all-solid-wood guitar that pairs mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. The aged vintage gloss accentuates the grain underneath.
The mahogany neck has a comfortable rounded C-profile and attaches to the body with a traditional dovetail joint. Mother-of-pearl split parallelogram inlays line the Indian laurel fingerboard, complementing the famous Hummingbird pickguard.
A 12-string that rings as true as a Hummingbird demands to be amplified for everyone to hear. Epiphone makes that easy with a Fishman Sonicore undersaddle pickup. Control the volume and tone with the soundhole-mounted Sonitone preamp.
Other features on the Inspired by Gibson Hummingbird 12-string acoustic-electric guitar include Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners, 6-ply top and 4-ply back binding, antique ivory fingerboard binding and a bone nut and saddle.
