The Thunderbird Bass, first issued from the legendary Kalamazoo factory in 1963, was for a time the only bass available from Gibson or Epiphone. But really, what else could you need? The Thunderbird's unique 'reversed' zig-zag body design and equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich who was enlisted by the Kalamazoo factory to bolster the electric guitar line and help solidify the factory's eminent rank among solidbody electric guitar manufacturers. The Thunderbird bass was quickly embraced by rock and rollers in the States, the UK, and Europe and today, is still the ultimate rock and roll low-end machine.
Vintage Sound and Design
The Thunderbird-IV features mahogany body wings and a solid, bolt-on Hard maple neck for amazing sustain and tone. The Thunderbird's SlimTaper™ profile neck has a 34 inch scale length and a rosewood fingerboard with a 12 inch radius and 20 medium jumbo nickel/silver alloy frets. The nut width is 1.73 inch for great string spacing and the body is finished in beautiful Vintage Sunburst.
Power of the Thunderbird
The Thunderbird-IV features Epiphone's new Thunderbird humbucker which have proven to be one of the most versatile pickups for bassists on stage and in the studio.
Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust
Epiphone hardware is the envy of the industry and the Thunderbird Pro features premium die-cast 17:1 bass machine heads, a 3 point full adjustable bridge, full function volume knobs and a master tone knob using full-size 500K Ohm potentiometers, black hardware and a vintage style white pickguard with classic Thunderbird logo.
