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.

The Only Way to Case a Bird

      Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

      If you own a Gibson or Epiphone Thunderbird base, this is the best way to go. Because of the unique shape of this bass and the extremely long length, no generic or aftermarket case will work. Every single case I looked at was close to 2 inches too short for the Bird.

      This Epiphone case provides perfect fit and protection -- the internal foam even has cut outs for the through neck construction where the body is thicker in the middle and thinner at the edges.

      Comments about Epiphone Thunderbird Hardshell Case:

      I bought this case not expecting it to be perfect (For how low the cost was).. but when it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised! For the money, this case is absolutely PERFECT! The only downside is that it's kinda bulky. But not a huge problem. It's very comfortable to carry. Very balanced. For the price, you simply cannot beat it. Buy it. Now.

        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.

        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!
