The alternative bass since 1963!

It was a wild-looking bass guitar in '63 and still is today. This version of the Gibson Thunderbird combines the reverse body and headstock styling of the original with Gibson's proven set-neck construction. Made in the U.S. of mahogany and equipped with Grover tuners and 2 TB Plus ceramic humbuckers. A classic thumper with a strong alternative vibe. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
