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.

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.
