Epiphone Thunderbird PRO-IV Active Bass, Vintage Sunburst

Details
The Epiphone Thunderbird PRO-IV Active Bass, Vintage Sunburst builds on the famous Gibson Thunderbird Bass. With its unique and instantly recognisable body shape, the Epiphone Thunderbird PRO-IV Bass has a retro 70s rock and roll appearance, with a vintage sound to match. The solid body is crafted from rich mahogany, for a warm and full-sounding tone with plenty of resonance. The 7 piece through neck, provides excellent sturdiness and durability; and it is more resistant to warping than a classic 1 piece. The neck is made from both maple and walnut, for a beautifully dynamic tone with bright highs and earthy lows. Loaded with a pair of T-PRO Bass Humbuckers, the Thunderbird PRO-IV delivers clear, vintage tones that are reminiscent of 70s rock and roll styles. The Epiphone Thunderbird PRO-IV Active Bass is finished in Vintage Sunburst, and is complete with black hardware, a black pickguard and a silver Thunderbird logo.

Pair Of Epiphone T-PRO Bass Humbuckers

The Thunderbird PRO-IV Bass Guitar is loaded with a pair of Epiphone T-PRO Bass Humbuckers at the neck and bridge. The T-PRO pickups deliver big and powerful bass tones, and players can easily shape their ideal sound with the on-board versatile EQ controls. The controls include Master Volume, Blend, High-EQ and Low-EQ; which can all be easily adjusted on the fly.

Crafted With Mahogany Body

The mahogany body gives the Thunderbird PRO-IV Bass a warm and resonant tone with great sustain, as well as plenty of depth. Mahogany delivers good levels of grind and bite, which works exceptionally well with punchy rock music. The mahogany body also provides durability, and a tone that will mature over the years for a long lasting investment.

Sturdy 7-Piece Neck-Through Construction

The Epiphone Thunderbird PRO-IV features beautiful neck-through construction, that is made from both maple and walnut. The maple brings bright and tight tones, packed with plenty of sustain and high end twang; whilst the walnut complements the brightness with enhanced warmth and earthiness. The 7-piece neck is strong, sturdy and is therefore more resistant to warping than a classic 1-piece, which ensures a long lasting neck.

The Thunderbird Story

The Epiphone Thunderbird is recognised as the ultimate rock and roll bass with its huge bass sound and distinctive body shape. The Thunderbird Bass first entered the music scene in 1963 and it was once the only bass provided by Gibson and Epiphone. The Thunderbird PRO-IV retains the instantly recognisable 'zig zag' effect body, and impressive rock performance of the original, at a more accessible price ideal for working musicians.
