Bring the Thunder with This Neck-Through-Body Sustain Machine!

Get your ears set for an entire rainbow of tonal possibilities. The Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV electric bass sports a seven-piece walnut/maple through-neck with mahogany body wings, giving this T-Bird an intricate striped look that just has to be seen to be appreciated. This eye-catching neck is shaped in a comfy slim taper bass profile, and features a smooth-as-glass 12" radius rosewood fretboard of 20 frets. A pair of Epiphone T-PRO Bass active humbuckers capture your notes for a warm and rich projection, and a secure flush-mount fully adjustable bridge holds everything down in assured confidence. Finally, master volume, blend, high-EQ, and low-EQ controls help you hone in on the exact tone you're after. All of these features combine to bring you a seamless experience of warm and full-bodied all-bass tone.

Seven-Piece Walnut/Maple Neck and Through-Neck Construction

This bass's neck stacks 7 layers of walnut and maple, shaped into a snug and inviting slim taper bass profile. Walnut's denseness tends to give it similar characteristics to mahogany, while maple tends to have a brighter and snappier frequency yield. Together, these woods add a pleasant response to your playing, and the through-neck joint on this axe allows for a remarkably seamless transfer of sound from the neck through to your Thunderbird's rich mahogany body.

Dark-Toned Mahogany Body Wings

The wings of your Thunderbird's body are mahogany -- a wood that provides your notes plenty of lows and mids for an overall well-balanced sonic color. Since this axe's body and neck are connected in through-neck joining, the center section of your Thunderbird is a maple/walnut blend. Aside from giving this bass a striking striped look, it also brings all three woods together for a nice and pleasant tonal blend that you simply can't get from standard bass guitars.

Pair of Epiphone T-PRO Bass Active Humbuckers

Capturing all the tones that your Thunderbird has to offer are your pair of Epiphone T-PRO Bass bridge and neck humbucking pickups. Your bridge pickup takes in a slightly brighter and more trebly tone from your notes, and your neck humbucker, which is really located more towards a middle pickup position, projects a bit more body for a slightly thicker sound. Both of these pickups provide a pristine and well-articulated sound perfect for the tones this T-Bird is capable of creating.

Volume, Blend, and Two-band EQ Controls

To shape your Thunderbird's tone to your own sonic signature are your blend, volume, and high and low EQ knobs. Your blend allows you to fine-tune the combination of your Epiphone T-PRO Bass pickups, and your two-band EQ controls give you the freedom to dial in just as much brightness and thump as you need for any situation. You'll never get bored with the sounds you'll get out of this supremely versatile bass!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "ME AGAIN"
Overall: I received the bass last Friday. Exceeded my expectations, a well made, flawless bass. What floored me was the fact it didn't need ANYTHING, just tuning and it was off to the races. Trust me, I went over this bass with a fine tooth comb, the finish is exceptional and I've always changed strings on a new bass...except this time, it has such a clean bell like response. No hissing, buzzing of any kind. I'm running it thru an Ampeg CL-300 with a 8x10 cab and an 18 inch folded horn cab. After this bass I could never waste my money on a Gibson logo when I can have Epi quality for much less. Can I afford a Gibson bass? I own 23 basses and 3 amp set ups, yeah...I think I can. But I'm smart enough to buy an Epi.
Style of Music: Albert KIng meets the Mule.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "T-Bird Pro-IV"
Overall: Mine is arriving this week by FedEx. Zzounds is a great place to do business with, they are so flexible. I tried the T-Bird at a music shop in Lafayette, responsive pick ups, nice lows and player friendly when you dial in your sound. With all the horror stories about Gibson's QC, this is a great bargain and it looks great. I was never a fan of that damned 3 point bridge either, neck thru seems to add a lot to the sustain and neck dive is really a non issue, when you set up your strap properly. Buy one, because it's obvious that a great bass doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg. NEVER BUY SOMETHING BECAUSE OF LOGO STATUS.
Style of Music: Original music...kinda like Albert King meets Govt. Mule
