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.

    Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

    Needed a TBird case and this does the trick. Good quality. I would suggest airing it out once you get it as mine had a chemical odor when I opened it. I left it on my porch for about five hours and the smell had disappeared.

    This case is only good for a TBird bass guitar.

    Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

    I had to buy a new Gibson T-Bird case. But, Gibson wants 500.00 for a new case & the Epi case was only 80.00. For their case. So, I bought the Epi case, until I can get my Gibson case fixed!

      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.
