Super smooth and fast shipment from Guitar Center. This is supposed to be used. It is in perfect condition and workmanship outstanding. Epiphone really nailed it with this one. Almost got the Gib version but the price dind't fit. Took a chance and glad I did. This is so much beyond that. Tonal and playing. I have a bunch of basses from Gretsch, Hofner, Fender, other Epi's, (once had a T-bird Goth, not even close to the PRO), JT's, SX's, Douglas and other Asian makes. This T-bird PRO is outstanding.

I wanted to love this bass so much. I had been waiting for 9 months from when I first saw it in the trades. Do not get me wrong, I love the way it plays and sounds but the oil finish looks much better in the pictures than in person. The oil finish version of the T-Bird Pro has more of an unfinished look than an oil finish. The neck and the cut away edges are very rough to the look and to the touch. The roughness of the neck makes it almost unplayable. I plan to return it and trade it for the Sunburst finish model. Bottom line: Love the bass but not the finish.

WOW

By bassplayer

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

I got this bass yesterday and it is great. I love the sound I get from it. I also like the thinner body so it is easier to play. If you want a good thunderbird go and get this one.

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

Great sounding! Very easy to play. Nice and smooth feeling.Run it through a Line 6 Bass floor Pod, and you have a nice rig! My house is too small to play it through my 200 Watt sunn amp, but i'll try it sometime.

Shepdog

By Ethan Shepley

from Wheeling, IL

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

Gave this bass to myself as a Christmas present. Great look, great sounds, fast neck. A few issues-a wire wasn't connected inside the bass and needed repair (I still get some pops and buzz on occasion), the battery for the active electronics goes pretty fast and the tuning pegs are pretty cheap. NOTE: the only bass case that will fit this guitar is the Epi Thunderbird case. Overall, good value for the money. This is a great complement to my Stingray and Geddy Lee. Love the long scale.

Sounds Great, Plays Great, Feels Great

By Matt

from LA, CA

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

I've only plugged this bass into my amp once and I can already tell it sounds great. I've been playing it unplugged and the way that it plays is unbelievable. You can really hear and feel the sustain on it. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

Almost Perfect , But , Not Quite

By CURTIS BROWN

from Tucker Georgia

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

I traded my EPI. T-Bird IV in on the T-Bird Pro IV (sunburst) a few days ago . The only thing I did not like about the T-Bird IV , were the cheap Passive Pickups . I was considering changing pickups , but , found it less expensive to buy a brand new guitar . The active pickups on this Bass , are night and day compared to the other T-Bird . Much more responsive and they just look better . The Bass I saw online , had a black border around the edge of the sunburst . My T-Bird came only with a darker brown border . At first , I was a little miffed about that , but , I actually think it looks even better like that . I have never owned an through body neck guitar before , so I didn't know what to expect . The neck is very comfortable and fast . The guitar came with the action high , but not unplayable . With a little tweaking to the Truss Rod and the intonation , with new strings , this guitar is ready to Rock . It will take me some time to get to know all the tones this guitar has . Believe me when I say , There are many , many different tones to this guitar . The only reason I did not give this guitar 5 stars , is , the finish on my guitar has a very minor flaw in one area . You can't see it when you look from a short distance , but , up close is a different story . It is minor , so , I can live with it . Very happy with my purchase . Would I reccomend it to others . Yes , yes , yes .

Inspiring!

By Chris G.

from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

Ever since I saw the first glimpse of Shavo Odadjian holding this bass about 8 years ago I was always inspired to play bass. When I saw this bass in all its glory in the shop, I was so stoked. Plays great, and I recommend it for all players, beginner or professionals alike.

Dont listen to the others.

By Kies Graham

from Martins Ferry Ohio

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

I recently bought this bass, its great. For some reason everyone on here thinks that it is 'top heavy', its not. This bass is perfect. You can play anything on this bass. The active pick-ups put the icing on the cake. This bass is attractive, and plays very well. I would recommend this bass to any one, beginners to experts. And you cant beat the price for this quality of bass.

Great Value, Great Sound & Great Looks

By DANIEL WALITS

from Montville, NJ

Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass:

I own several Epiphone Basses (Vintage Rivoli and Accu Bass and have played bass on and off for over 40 years. The quality of the Thunderbird Pro is excellent. On close examination, I have to say Epiphone has a great quality control program. The construction and finish of this bass is excellent. I purchased the Sunburst last month and it is beautiful, just like a fine piece of quality furniture. Action is great, no buzzing, the active pickups & built in EQ gives you a great variety of sounds and styles. Strap buttons are designed to avoid the dreaded "Neck Dive". It is hefty in weight but not overly so. I play a Hofner Club Bass for the 60's sounds, R&B and Blues. The Thunderbird really is at home for that heavy Rock Sound from the 70's & 80's. It has that Punch and Sock! They always say, "You get what you pay for". In this case, you do but you definitely get a LOT more! I suggest getting the Sunburst as it is really a beautiful instrument.
