OVERVIEW

Old-school body and neck design from the '60s creates exceptional punch and sustain.

This Thunderbird electric bass guitar has the classic reverse body and headstock design Gibson originally introduced in 1963 on their first neck-through-body bass design. The traditional 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck-through body construction provides a thundering low-end response and a piano like sustain. The narrow nut width and rounded neck profile neck feel both fast and intuitive. The Thunderbird's high-output, ceramic magnet loaded humbucking pickups (neck and bridge) deliver the sonic and iconic low-end voice for which the Thunderbird is known.

Choose from two classic finishes: Tobacco Burst and Ebony.


Enjoy some classic bass flavor with your new Thunderbird. Order now.
