The Epiphone Hummingbird acoustic guitar has been cited as an inspiration by Jane's Addiction's Dave Navarro.

He has recently been involved in designing his own signature acoustic/electric guitar with Epiphone and the star told the Gibson website that the Hummingbird was in his thoughts while doing so.

"I decided to go with my version of that, which is a tipping of the hat to the Hummingbird history with a goth sensibility to it," said Navarro.

He explained that he used the classic Hummingbird design on his instrument's pickguard, while he decided to make his guitar black and decorated with images of crows and trees to give it a different feel.

Earlier this year, Duff McKagan revealed that he has had to work in a different way since joining Jane's Addiction.

The former Guns N' Roses star said that his songwriting style has changed because many of the band's songs do not contain a chorus.
