Overview

The Gibson Thunderbird Bass Tobacco Burst Finish is Gibson's original neck-through-body-design bass, and has been a favourite amongst players the world over for more than five decades.

With its deep, rich tone, and piano-like sustain, it's no wonder the Thunderbird is as popular now as it ever has been.

Hard Rock Low End

Originally released in 1963 alongside the awesome Firebird guitar, the Gibson Thunderbird was the company's first ever neck-through-body bass design.

This innovative design gave the world an incredible-sounding bass, with high levels of playability, and plenty of natural sustain.

Gibson Thunderbird Bass Tobacco Burst Finish Highlights

  • A modern take on Gibson's first neck-through-body bass design
  • Longer 34"-scale construction
  • Solid Mahogany wings attached to a 9-ply Mahogany/Walnut neck
  • Superb level of natural sustain and warm tonality
  • Two high-output, ceramic magnet loaded humbuckers, produce a nicely thick low end
  • Classic Tobacco Burst finish
  • Includes fitted hard shell case
  • Home Delivery options available

Highly Playable

Part of the charm presented by the Gibson Thunderbird is the sleek neck, topped with a 12" radius Rosewood fretboard, and a rounded profile shape. This results in an incredibly comfortable playing experience, whatever your playstyle.

High Output Pickups

The Gibson Thunderbird also comes equipped with a set of T-Bird pickups, fully complimenting the naturally rich tones generated by its construction.

These high-output humbuckers are loaded with ceramic magnets, producing that iconic Thunderbird low end, as heard on countless rock records over the decades.

In addition to this, each pickup has independent Volume controls and share a Master Tone pot, allowing you to shape your sound as you see fit.
