Overview

The combination of a Mahogany body and Walnut/Maple neck give the Thunderbird its trademark tone, varying from funky top end to a low end warmth.

Everything about this bass shouts 'Vintage'! True to the legacy of the original Thunderbird with modern electronics for unrivalled bass response.

A full 34" scale, Slimtaper profile and 7-piece Walnut/Maple neck make this an immersive, comfortable bass to suit any style. The winged body shape of the Thunderbird allow the tone to fully resonate and decay, while remaining slim enough to sit with for hours on end.

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.
