Sigma are now firmly established in the guitar world, with a reputation for producing high-quality (and beautiful) instruments at a fraction of the cost of some of their competitors!
The Hummingbird is one of the most attractive flat top acoustic guitar in the history of pop and is the inspiration for the Sigma SG Series DM-SG5.The Sigma DM SG5 has that characteristic pickguard with the unmistakable silhouette of a Hummingbird that gives this instrument its name. With a 24" scale length a bridge is the belly up type and that classic heritage Cherry Sunburst finish.
Body & Neck
Mahogany is used for the back and sides; mahogany is known for being lightweight, resonant and having a pretty grain pattern, making it an excellent wood for acoustic building. On top, you've got solid sitka spruce, a wood that frequently features on guitars that cost significantly more than this one!
The dreadnought shape ensures plenty of weighty projection, with a warm low-end response. The curves have been carefully calculated with reference to the dreadnought acoustics of old; this means an ergonomic playing experience without sacrificing tone. Combine this with the lightweight mahogany neck and the unusual micarta fingerboard, and you've got a beautifully organic cocktail of resonant tones at your disposal!
Hardware & Electronics
One of the key features of this guitar is the Fishman Sonitone preamp. Fishman are known for their expertise in the acoustic field, making pickups and preamps that produce incredibly convincing sounds.
The Sonitone embodies this, with simple tone and volume controls built-in for tonal tweaking. A rosewood bridge, flower art scratchplate, heritage cherry sunburst finish and chrome tuners complete the picture; a working instrument that also happens to look pretty darn beautiful!
