    Do you own a Thunderbird? Are you lacking a good strong case for it?
    Stop waffling and buy this case immediately!

    It fits my T-Bird like a glove, the interior is shaped specifically to cradle and immobilize the guitar.
    Nice plush lining, has a big hinged compartment for all your loose junk and gobs of space around the head stock. Plenty of room inside for cables, picks, books, tuners, blah blah blah etc. Also has feet on the bottom for lying flat and on the hinge side so you can stand it on edge. Handle is sturdy and offset for balance so it carries level.

    Only con is you have to have a really flexible strap to be able to leave it on while the guitar is cased, but that's not really a big deal.

    Sure, you can't hit it with a truck and expect your guitar to survive, but if people are hitting your stuff with trucks you need to hang out with different people.

    This is as good as it gets without spending all the money on an train-wreck proof aluminum coffin for your bass. Digs on the Epiphone logo, too.

    This is a great, fairluy well made case for the Thunderbird with the bolt on neck, BUT if you buy the more expensive Thunderbird Pro with the "thru Body" neck like the real Gibsons, the bass does not fit the Epi case. It does not fit the Gibson case either. We contacted Epi about this when we got the case we ordered and they haven't offered us a solution yet. We are on the road so we use the Epi case but have had to "force" the bass to fit. It's better than no case at all, but it is still a less than adequate situation.

    I'm very happy with this product, it fits my bass like a glove, very impressed with it's delivery time as well, it showed up several days early. Anyone owning an Epiphone Thunderbird should definitely consider this, it's well worth it!

      Very happy with the case. It would be nice to be able to have purchased it in the store when I bought the Thunderbird. Shipping could have been free.... just saying...

          Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

          Well, its the size of a Buick, but the thunderbird IV fits perfectly with no movement. Its built like a tank and its heavy, but there is no other option. Musician's friend tech support told me the T-Bird would fit in the deluxe Gator case - it will NOT, the body is 3 inches too large for it. I am not a fan of wood cases because they wear and tear worse than the ABS plastic in my experience and they are heavier but there is no other option. Bottom line, if you have a thunderbird and ever take it anywhere, you should buy this case.

            Thunderbird Pro fits PERFECTLY in this case. Bulky, yes, but it has to be to hold this huge bass. Seems like it will offer great protection. Would have given it 5 stars, except for the fact that top corners of the case were slightly scuffed and scared up, and the case came with only one key for the lock.

            Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

            Case fits my Thunderbird Pro very nice. Good protection. My only complaint, and reason for the four stars, is that the outside material bruises, or gets marked up easily. I have been semi-careful with it and have only hauled my bass about five times to practice. The case already looks like I have used it for months. Personally, I don't care how the case looks on the outside, as long as my bass doesn't get hurt. Good news is, no rips in the material yet, but I haven't gigged with it yet, either.

                I have a 2008 Thunderbird. It will NOT fit in this case as the body is slightly wider than the current T-birds and the case cut-out

                  I bought this case to protect a 1964 Gibson T-Bird.. These are about the only case that fits the T-Bird so you don't have much choice other than going to Gibson. They really don't sell them as you a get a case when you buy a Gibson Thunderbird... However my Gibson case broke a few years back so I pick this one up...It will not make you play better but it does the job
