As one of the company's most recognisable models, it's no wonder that the Gibson Thunderbird Bass is back for 2019. These stunning, hard-rocking instruments have long been a favourite in bands such as The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd and even Cheap Trick, since they first made their debut back in 1963.
A Hard-Rock Icon
With this Gibson Thunderbird Bass you get that classic Neck-Thru build that they're famed for, with an all-Mahogany construction, a Vintage Sunburst finish, and a set of specially voiced Gibson Thunderbird pickups. This stunning bass guitar is ready to rock right out of the box, and looks every bit as rockin' as it sounds!
Whilst the Thunderbird's thru-neck construction is partially responsible for it's signature tone, the largest contributor is, without a doubt, those T-Bird pickups. Capable of throwing out those crushing bass tones that have been rumbling their way through contemporary music for more than five decades, these pickups are perfect for playing a variety of hard rock and metal.
Specially designed to give you the maximum amount of sustain combined with a warm, harmonically rich tone, Gibson Thunderbird basses are traditionally crafted with a Neck-Thru build. This means that the neck runs the entire length of the instrument's body, with the "wings" glued into position to complete the look.
