The Epiphone Thunderbird Bass is based around the Gibson original – first issued from the legendary Kalamazoo factory in 1963 and for a time the only bass available from Gibson or Epiphone. With its unique “reversed” zig-zag body shape and equally distinct headstock – both the the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich – the Thunderbird bass quickly became a rock staple, and has been a staple ever since. Now, the Epiphone Thunderbird makes that same style available to even more players.
The Thunderbird-IV features mahogany body wings, and a solid, bolt-on hard maple neck. The Thunderbird has a SlimTaper profile neck, rosewood fingerboard with a 12″ radius, and a 34″ scale length.
The Thunderbird-IV also features Epiphone’s Thunderbird TB Plus humbucker, which has proven to be one of the Epiphone’s most versatile bass pickups, both on the stage and in the studio.
