Product Description

A 60s classic that has been updated with a cutaway and shadow electronics! The Shadow ePerformer preamp and NanoFlex pickup system gives the Hummingbird Performer Pro superior acoustic tone when plugged in, plus the cutaway provides access to the really high notes.

The History of the Hummingbird 
The Hummingbird acoustic guitar was first released in 1960 and was the first Gibson & Epiphone dreadnaught guitar. With its distinctive “square” shoulder, it quickly became a rock classic thanks in part to Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones who used a Hummingbird on hits like "Play With Fire" and "Under My Thumb." Today, the Hummingbird is still considered a superb rhythm guitar for its woody tone and easy action along with its distinctive “Hummingbird” pickguard. Now with Shadow’s ePerformer preamp and NanoFlex pickup system, you can plug in the Hummingbird Performer PRO and get true acoustic tone on any size stage.

Solid Spruce Tonewood 
The Hummingbird Performer PRO Acoustic/Electric has a select Mahogany body and a Solid Spruce top with a beautiful cutaway never seen before on a Hummingbird. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that will sound even better as it ages. The more you play, the better it sounds! The select Mahogany neck has 24.75” scale and a classic SlimTaper D profile and is attached to the body with a glued-in dovetail joint. The Rosewood fingerboard has pearloid parallelogram inlays, 20 medium frets, a 12" radius, and a 1.69" nut. There is white binding on the fingerboard and 5-ply white & black binding on the body top. The classic sloped dovewing headstock has Epiphone "Deluxe” 18:1 machine heads and the iconic “Epiphone" logo in white. The Hummingbird Performer PRO Acoustic/Electric's reverse belly rosewood bridge has a compensated saddle for smooth action and intonation. And the pickguard has the same vintage “Hummingbird” design as the first generation of Hummingbird acoustics from the early 60s.

Shadow Pickup System 
For more than a decade, Epiphone and Shadow Germany have worked together to perfect a pickup that can amplify an acoustic guitar on any size stage without sacrificing tone. Controls for the Shadow ePerformer Preamp are on the upper bout and include controls for Master Volume, Treble and Bass EQ, Mute, and a Dynamics control adjusted via a frequency curve. The preamp is powered by two 2032 batteries and a low battery indicator is included. The output jack and strap locks are nickel and the Hummingbird Performer PRO Acoustic/Electric is strung at the Epiphone factory with time-tested D'Addario Phosphor (12-53) strings.

What a beautiful guitar. The craftsmanship is perfect, the action was just right for me and after a tuning, it sounds fantastic either unplugged or plugged in.Extremely satisfied. Also my late mother collected hummingbirds and with a hummingbird themed guitar strap she's always playing along with me.

Better than ever
What is your opinion of this product?
The Pro CA sounds so clear just unplugged. With the Shadow electronic system on, the phase adjuster matches sounds from guitars costing 10x the price. Cons - no case and the old fashioned pick guard stifles the potential elegance of this great sounding instrument.

I am impressed
What is your opinion of this product?
Like the other review, I wanted a hummingbird since i first saw one. But didn't really care for the sound and I prefer a cutaway guitar anyway. My brother has an ebony hummingbird and honestly doesn't like it. It just hangs on the wall week after week. But I ordered this one in faded cherry just to have one. (My 34th guitar) So I obviously didn't need it. And to be honest, right out of the box (after tuning) it played very well and sounds so much better than I expected. Even he was impressed and grabbed his and said "nope, it just doesn't have it" and hung it back on the wall. I would prefer a better preamp and controls but I will upgrade it for sure. Maybe I just got lucky, but is one of my favs now.

Incredible Guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
I originally was drawn between the black and sunburst Hummingbird Pro guitars a few years ago, and went with the sunburst because the black one was not available on American Musical. Flash forward to 2017 and I'm still wanting a black Hummingbird, but I am also wanting an acoustic with a cutaway. I pop onto AMS one day and see the new Hummingbird Performer Pro available for pre-order and it comes in black with a cutaway. You better believe I clicked "order"! It arrived about a month later (once it was in stock) and wow! Out of the box, it didn't need much! Just a change of strings to my preferred brand and a quick truss rod adjustment and it's good to go! Epiphone really hit it out of the park with this one!
