Epiphone T-Bird Pro -VI Bass
The classic Thunderbird Bass has become a virtual institution in pop music. Now Epiphone introduces the new Professional Series Thunderbird™ PRO. The Thunderbird is the ultimate rock and roll bass with the world-famous distinctive shape. First released in 1963, the Thunderbird PRO combines traditional design elements with cutting edge technology and all for a price that every working bassist can afford.
When the Thunderbird IV was first introduced it 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.
This instrument has a slight discoloration on the top side of the neck which has no impact whatsoever on the playability or cosmetic appeal of this awesome instrument. See last picture below.
