Epiphone's Take on the Thunderous Thunderbird Bass!
Back in 1963, the Thunderbird electric bass was born, and Epiphone pays tribute to this classic axe with the Epiphone Thunderbird IV. This is a great entry-level bass for any player to dip their toes into before committing to a more expensive instrument. The reverse zig-zag alder body looks sleek and resonates a punchy sound perfect for rock enthusiasts. Two 2-TB Plus humbuckers take in the nuance of your performance and project a clear output ready to hit the stage. A maple neck features 20 frets of smooth playability and comfortable action. Check the reviews, and you'll see why players of all experience levels love this Epiphone 4-string!
The Distinctive Thunderbird Look
The atypical reverse zig-zag body shape certainly stands out in the crowd. It also offers a comfortable feel and an addicting playability your fingers won't be able to get enough of. Take a good look at the back of the instrument, and you'll see it has a mahogany center with alder "wings," yielding a deep, dark full-bodied sound, without adding too much weight. And with the "neck" pickup placed closer to the center of the body, the Thunderbird gives you the growling bass tone you want without too much low-end mud.
Maple Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard
Maple necks offer a rounded brightness with just enough bite. The SlimTaper profile yields a cozy feel if you're not a fan of bulkier necks, and the bolt-on joint adds a little snap to your output. This T-Bird's neck is topped with a silky-smooth rosewood fingerboard and 20 frets for your fingers to enjoy.
Two 2-TB Plus Humbuckers
At the bridge and neck are a set of 2-TB Plus humbuckers ready to electrify your performance and shake the stage. Both of these pickups boast a versatile and powerful sound that can be tweaked via independent volume controls and a master tone control. With the "neck" pickup mounted closer to the middle of the instrument, each note comes through without any unwanted low-end mud or buzz, no matter where you play.
