Description

The Gibson Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird bass reflects the style and sound of the KISS bassist and legendary rock icon. Designed to meet the musical needs of modern bassists, it features the classic Gibson Reverse Thunderbird body and headstock shape. It is voiced with a Lead T-Bird pickup at the bridge and Rhythm T-Bird at the neck, each with individual Volume controls and paired with a master Tone control. Enjoy smooth playing with the rounded profile mahogany neck and ebony fretboard, including pearloid reverse split diamond inlays. A GraphTech nut and Hipshot Mini-Clover tuners keep the tuning rock solid, while the other end of the strings anchor to a Hipshot bass bridge. The ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish is paired with black chrome hardware and a Mirror Plex pickguard. A hardshell case is included.
