Bass players love the Gibson Thunderbird bass. With its original neck-through body design and futuristic looks when it was released, it was a bass ahead of its time.
The Gibson Thunderbird IV bass joined Gibson's distinguished lineup shortly after its introduction in 1963. The Thunderbird's unique, reversed zig-zag body design and equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, enlisted by Gibson to bolster the guitar lines of the early '60s and help solidify the company's eminent rank among solidbody electric guitar manufacturers.
This limited-edition Thunderbird 4-string, with its "thunderous sound,” is still a benchmark of innovation, functionality and style, and continues to symbolize Gibson's drive to achieve creative excellence. Over the years, the Thunderbird bass has evolved to keep up with technological advances and offer every generation of players the best in tone and comfort.
The 2019 Thunderbird features solid mahogany body and wings and a 9-ply multi-laminate mahogany/walnut neck for endless sustain and stability. The rosewood fingerboard sports a comfortably rounded back profile and 12” radius.
Cosmetics include black tophat knobs with silver inserts knobs and black chrome hardware. Sealed tuners, a Tektoid nut and 3-point adjustable bridge keep intonation tight and help you stay in tune all night. Gibson T-Bird pickups provide a wide variety of tones with plenty of power and no hum. Includes case.
