Rating and Reviews: Epiphone T-Bird Pro IV

A distinctive 7-piece walnut/maple neck, through-body construction, and a pair of T-Pro bass humbuckers give the Thunderbird Pro IV serious tone and sustain.

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.

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.

Overall: Looks are killer but ergonomics are poor. I can't seem to get a comfortable playing position. Lots of fret noise and even with flat wounds I can't quite get rid of that squeaky, ringing tone to go away. I bought this to play down a half step, Kiss, Guns, Van Halen and I like it well enough but maybe I need some more time with it.

Overall: Great bass except for the buzzing. I sent back the first one. It was replaced by zZounds immediately. Fantastic service. Well I've played the replacement for a while and it did great until after a battery replacement. Now it's buzzing too. Also battery life is poor when compared to my 3 other active basses. It's just sitting in it's case now.
