The Epiphone Thunderbird bass is an incredibly accurate reproduction of the classic electric bass first introduced in 1963. Thanks to Gibson, bassists could now enjoy some distinctively shaped instruments and get their moment in the spotlight. It doesn't hurt that a ton of thought went into the design of this bass, including a thicker middle/thinner wing body construction for a substantial yet lightweight playing experience.

 

Its distinctive body shape and fast 34"-scale neck give the Thunderbird a great combination of striking looks and unbeatable playability. Two well-placed pickups put out plenty of volume, plus a range of tonality. The pickup configuration on the Epiphone Thunderbird IV is unique. Rather than placing a pickup near the neck, which could muddy up the tone and reduce its effectiveness, Epiphone gives the bass essentially middle and bridge pickups. This lets you dial in everything from growling tones to funky punch. Each pickup gets its own volume control, along with a single tone knob for fine-tweaking.

 

This bass was extremely loved and functioned as a performance instrument. The original owner took great care of it and would love to see it go to a bassist who will play it as much as it deserves!
