with USA pickups

Written by

Elliot Stent

The Epiphone Thunderbird Classic IV combines Epiphone's legendary build quality and value for money body construction with Gibson's no holds barred, no expense spared USA made pickups. You know it makes sense! The pickups are often the weak link when it comes to value guitars but with the Classic IV you get the best pickups available!

Here's what Epiphone say about the Thunderbird Classic-IV PRO

A Rock Classic Returns with Gibson TB-Plus Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets The Thunderbird IV was first introduced in 1963 and instantly became one of rock's most recognizable bass guitar designs. For almost five decades, the Thunderbird has powered artists as varied as Nikki Sixx, The Who, Kings of Leon, Cheap Trick, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steely Dan and The Silversun Pickups. Turn on your radio and you'll hear a Thunderbird bass. Now, Epiphone takes all the vintage mojo of the original Thunderbird IV and sends it flying into the future with Gibson TB Plus humbuckers with ceramic magnets and all the 'Bird's original styling and features intact.

The Thunderbird IV was one of the most radical designs to come out of the Gibson and Epiphone Kalamazoo factory in the early '60s, thanks to legendary automotive designer Ray Dietrich, who was asked to put a new twist on solidbody guitars and basses. The sound of the Thunderbird IV was as cutting edge as its design and now the Thunderbird Classic-IV PRO returns with all of Epiphone's first-class quality and a lifetime guarantee, but without the hassles of owning (or hiding) a vintage instrument.

Like all Epiphone instruments, the Thunderbird Classic-IV PRO comes with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service. Visit your Authorized Epiphone Dealer today and soar to a new future with the Thunderbird Classic-IV PRO.
