The Distinctive Thunderbird LookThe 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.

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.
Two 2-TB Plus HumbuckersAt 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.

Epiphone Thunderbird IV Bass GuitarThe Thunderbird Bass, first issued from the legendary Kalamazoo factory in 1963, was for a time the only bass available from Gibson or Epiphone. But really, what else could you need? The Thunderbirds unique reversed zig-zag body design and equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich who was enlisted by the Kalamazoo factory to bolster the electric guitar line and help solidify the factorys eminent rank among solidbody electric guitar manufacturers. The Thunderbird bass was quickly embraced by rock and rollers in the States, the UK, and Europe and today, is still the ultimate rock and roll low-end machine. Building upon the long-term success of the classic Thunderbird, Epiphone introduces the Thunderbird IV.
