Overview

The original Thunderbird bass has been heard on countless hit records over the years, and has become one of rock's most distinguished bass guitar styles.

Retaining the iconic look of the original Thunderbird, this Epiphone Classic re-issue sports Gibson TB Plus pickups for thunderous low end tone.

For the modern player, Epiphone's Classic-IV re-issue keeps the fundamental design the same, while upgraded electronics and hardware turn this into a new beast altogether. A wide, winged Mahogany body and a 7-ply layered mahogany/walnut neck set the foundation for rich, warm low end and rock-solid stability.

The Classic IV neck has a 1960s-style rounded profile, which makes it easy to play without sacrificing the tone that comes with a full-size bass neck. The mahogany/walnut neck has a 34-inch scale length with a rosewood fingerboard, a 12-inch radius, 20 medium-jumbo nickel/silver alloy frets, a 1.50-inch nut and pearloid "dot" inlays.

The Thunderbird IV was first introduced in 1963 and instantly became one of rock's recognisable 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.
