2o2rnr2y2d's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I love it"

Epiphone Thunderbird-IV
round of 42 passive 2 volume 1 tone, the handle is not through (it seems there is some confusion on this subject) but the body has a thickness of as an extension of the handle.
The original string is the m. .., take the right suite.Elles blackened fingers!!
Oh so you have to change the mounting screws belt clips, too short, they lock. Double the length is perfect.
I put very good especially for the price


The handle is very pleasant and contrary to some opinions, it is not big. It is a round of 42 (58 to 19 °) as a precision or a Ibanez GSR200. Obviously if it's been 2 hours you play jazz bass with a round of 38 (62 to 19 °) and as you move from a blow to the thunderbird, you open the hand for 1 or 2 minutes! Note that it is even thinner than a jazz bass at 19 °.
Well if it's not so much a big lower level coorps but in weight and length (1.23 m). It does not lodge in the houses standard (in fact a specific Thoman cheap).
The traditional home kouroi that it is desiquilibrée when playing standing up if you play it does not matter if just stalling the right forearm on the back of the body or it is necessary to move the fastener side handle ( The new models are corrected). Sitting, it is well balanced.

No I would say that something has to answer a rock star:

A guitar (ie low) this is chosen before a mirror, a point c is

and then with two EMG you can go, the sound there ....

Owner 'a happy future

Epiphone Thunderbird-IV
Manufactured in Asia.
20 frets
2 humbucker.
SETTING THE volume by a microphone, a tone of rglage.
The finish is excellent for a bass this price.
non-active bass.
Book with good quality cover trs. With proper thickness of foam to the bass being protected.


The handle is enjoyable, it is easy to accde acute.
Level ergonomics .... not easy to play sitting down, but we must get used to. To put it one foot must be, otherwise it breaks the geule. In fact the only rel default was that it is not balance trs. But you get used to it quickly.

For weight there is nothing redir, it is not too lgre nor too heavy.

When the sound, it is good for a trs bass of this price. It is clearly destined to rock style. It comes very easy to get one's greasy, ideal with overdrive. We also have a slightly softer


I thought beginners to use as 2nd bass. Because it is his form that pushed me to buy it. But I use rgulirement because the sound is surprising for a bass of this price.

I use it on an amp warwick pro fet-IV with box 411pro. Trs and it sounds good. The effect with the bass I use the overdrive Boss ODB-3.


I use it for 2 months, it's a bomb. Sound, shape, everything is done for.
This is my 3rd bass, and I use it just to rock. But it is more versatile than I thought, while remaining flexible at all. Avoid so as to take it to learn to play bass Premire, just because the look you tap the eye.

It comes with a cover, although trs drawback being protected for the bass.
The varnished against looking a little fragile. Mine still has no marks, but it will probably happen soon. But it seems really solid gnral.

-------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------
Small dtails:
+ There is a thumb rest on the micro
+ The cover
+ Finish
+ REFERRED of the choza to put the strap are standard size. not need to redo the hole to put the stap lock.

-The jack on the front of the bass
Not well-balance. probably because of the shape, not because of poor design.
-Makes no sense.

Epiphone Thunderbird-IV
20 frets with two low double micro emg, volume control by micro, adjustable tone, low non-active, the sound is not very versatile but I think for the perfect rock c


The handle is hard to take over at the beginning but after a while only ca vien tt
access to acute is easy
the weight is correct but not fo dream is a low but for my part I have seen worse nivo weight
good sound for rock


Perfect for now
warwick amplifier 12 and take an overdrive / distortion digitech "bass driver"


It's going to be seven months that I use
given the low form is not at all so Balanced c cho enough to play standing I find much support sleeve fo ...
I tried a single cell model before the one fretless
the price is right for a low as the cel ...
with lexpérience I do not think I referrer this choice because its nivo el does not suit me but I fully happy men and even when I laprecie
