Is there a cooler looking or more iconic bass than the Gibson Thunderbird? The Nashville-based guitar builders are delivering more of the goods by popular demand. This 34” scale length beast is sure to attract attention thanks to its awesome style and impeccable sound.
Body & Neck
The classic neck-through-body is a consistent design feature for the Thunderbird, providing incredible access to upper frets. It’s made of a stunningly smooth nine-ply Mahogany and Walnut mix. Because these woods are extremely dense, it holds supremely solid tuning stability.
On top is a classic Rosewood fretboard with a rounded profile, making it effortless to play. Embedded are 20 beautifully treated frets that provide longevity and less susceptibility to wear and rust.
It may look like a vintage bass but it’s anything but retro in tone. The pair of high-output T-Bird pickups sound huge. There’s a reason past models have been popular in rock and metal, and this continues the trend.
It’s not all high-octane though. You can subtly tweak output with its two independent volume knobs and a master tone. Dial it down and you’ll get crisp cleans.
The 3-point adjustable bridge is comfortable for the picking hand and delivers excellent sound transfer through the body. Its Graph Tech nut and Grover tuners combo cuts out tuning problems and string friction.
