Epiphone Thunderbird IV, VS · Electric Bass Guitar

The Epiphone Thunderbird IV reverse bass's streamlined design is based on Gibson's original shape, with distinctive reversed body styling. 2 Epiphone humbucking pickups, 2 volume and 1 tone controls. Alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, with dot inlays. The Epiphone Thunderbird IV bass's distinctive alder body and fast 34"-scale neck give the Thunderbird IV a great combination of striking looks and unbeatable playability. Two well-placed humbucking pickups put out plenty of volume, plus tonality that ranges from thick to punchy. Though it features a substantial body shape, this bass is lightweight and very comfortable for holding down the bottom end onstage. You'll get a ton of tone when you pick up the thunderous Epiphone Thunderbird IV!

The pickup configuration on the Epiphone Thunderbird IV bass guitar is unique. Rather than placing a pickup near the neck, which could muddy up the tone and reduce its effectiveness, Epiphone gives the bass essentially middle and bridge pickups. This lets you dial in everything from growling tones to funky punch. Each pickup gets its own volume control, along with a single tone knob for fine tuning.

Nearly four decades ago, the The Thunderbird bass design was introduced by Gibson. Bassists could now enjoy some distinctively shaped instruments and get their moment in the spotlight. It doesn't hurt that the Epiphone Thunderbird IV sounds amazing! Much thought went into the design of the Epiphone Thunderbird IV reverse bass, including a thicker middle / thinner wing alder body construction for a substantial yet lightweight playing experience.

I bought this bass 6 months ago. I like it very much. It's really amazing for this money. Its sound is so nice and deep that I can't help playing every day. There was a small problem with a neck some months later (that's why I gave 4 stars for quality), but I have fixed it and now everything is OK.
