Extremely Good Bass

By Pythagoreemostophanese20

See all my reviews

This bass is excellent. The zebra wood fret board makes it extremely easy to play and the sound is clear. It is a little deep, but the wings on it make it look beautiful and it really is a nice bass. The color is good, and if you're looking for a collector's item, buy this bass. Be careful with it if you buy it, it's delicate.


A different kind of bird!

By Airmover

from The OC

This Zebra is T-bird # 4 for me. Not only does it stand out from my other 3 (Ebony, White and Sunburst) with it's unique looks, I believe the Zebra Wood gives this bird a little more bottom end and sustain. This bass has the look and the sound. A limited run of 400 ensures this bird to be a sound investment. I've got mine!


Great Tbird in Zebrawood

By chuck-6d2xF

from Louisiana

This Thunderbird is so fun to play, easy. It is solid as a rock. Very Heavy, but that is ok, it eliminates most of the neck dive in this model because of the beautiful zebrawood wings. It looks fantastic, I get many comments from the audience, even more than my white Tbird. The sound is very clear and DEEP. I use a sansamp on it to boost crispness and I am right where I want to be tonally. Get this bass. There were only 400 made. It is a collectable instrument because of this.
