Overview

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.

Gibson Thunderbird bass unique design

Unique features that bassists love

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.
