The Epiphone Starling has all your sonic needs and playing
comforts covered as a great beginner acoustic guitar. Based on the
classic Gibson Hummingbird, the Starling bears plenty of
resemblances to its grandfather in design and execution. The body
is made of mahogany and spruce; two tried and tested woods used in
guitar building for centuries.
The square shoulder acoustic shape has always been a popular
choice for big strummed chords because of its unbeatable presence
and sonic projection. That's exactly the type of playing you'll be
getting to grips with early on in your musical journey - so why not
start with the best acoustic for the style in the business!
