The Thunderbird IV Bass was released in 1963, and thanks to its unique “reverse” zig-zag body, it joined ranks with the SG Standard, the Les Paul, and the Flying V as one of Gibson’s most recognizable instruments.
This iconic bass is known for unbeatable craftsmanship. Its neck-through-body design makes it harder to build, but guarantees cleaner and longer tones. The angled headstock, three-way adjustable bridge, and tailpiece create a beautiful union between the strings and body. Players can adjust the strings front, back, or side-to-side to accommodate a custom setup.
The 2014 edition of the Thunderbird also features max grip speed knobs, graph tech nut, and a 34-inch scale. Best of all, its T-Bird Plus pickups are totally indestructible. This pair of humbuckers are traditional hum-canceling bass pickups with ceramic magnets. They’re wax potted and then filled with epoxy to produce a full-frequency, heavy-bottom, powerful bass tone. This isn’t a delicate instrument – feel free to rock hard.
