« Epiphone Thunderbird IV »

This is the 4 string, non-reverse headstock, version of the Epiphone Thunderbird in 3-tone sunburst finish. 2 humbucker pickups, volume, volume and tone knobs. Black hardware, alder body, maple neck with rosewood board and well that's all the run on incomplete sentences I'll include for this portion.

Local music shop browsing. These cost $299. I bought it, well be cause it looked cool. As an added bonus it sounds great too.

For still what would be considered a cheap bass, Epiphone does it right. The pickups are loud, yet not noisy. The hardware is solid, the instrument stays in tune well and there's plenty of access to the upper frets.

The action was a bit high. My biggest gripe with guitars in general is they are setup at the factory, then that goes south in shipping with climate changes, then stores put them right out on the shelf.

Hey a couple minutes worth of work, I had this thing sounding and playing great.

Well built. Expect a neck dive as the neck is heavy. A beautiful sunburst finish. Hardware is well built. Neck feels good. I believe it is a 1.7' nut measurement.

Great rock n roll bass. Full of midrange. I could get usable sounds out of both the bridge and the neck pickups solo'd or played together.
