Epiphone Hummingbird Pro Acoustic/Electric Faded Cherry Burst 2014
Epiphone Hummingbird Pro, made 2014. This has got a fair bit of cowboy-swagger. The original Gibson Hummingbird gained notoriety in the 60s in the hands of Keith Richards, among others, and it's still cool now. This guy has some nice features: solid spruce top, handy pickup/preamp combo, Grover tuners... it's pretty nicely appointed. The neck is a comfortable 'slim taper' profile, not the baseball-bat that some Epi dreadnoughts come with. As with many Gibson designs, the heavier bracing allows for a smooth and controlled rhythm sound, perfect if you really like to lay into your guitar. These fetch around $600 new, so grab a bargain. This really looks the part, grab yourself some big pointy boots and a hat and sing about your problems!
