Gibson

Description

Ever since its introduction in 1965, the Non-Reverse Thunderbird Bass from Gibson has been a favorite among bassists who refuse to compromise. With its distinctive styling and massive, thunderous tone, the Non-Reverse Thunderbird stands out both on stage and in the studio. This Gibson USA Thunderbird Bass makes this relatively rare 'bird available to the masses, complete with a non-reverse mahogany body and neck and rosewood fingerboard. Each of the two Thunderbird pickups has its own Volume control, allowing for separate use or to blend them however you like, while a Master Tone control rounds out the simple but effective control layout. Additional features include a 3-point adjustable bridge and Hipshot Ultralite tuners for optimal tuning stability.
