    Thunderbird a luxury.

    Gibson 50th Anniversary Thunderbird BassPublished on 04/11/14 at 04:54
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Manufacturing USA

    Mahogany body
    Neck-through mahogany, rounded profile
    Rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets and pearloid inlays Dot
    Grover Shamrock, 20:1 ratio
    2 T-Bird Bass pickups with ceramic magnets
    2 volume controls, 1 tone
    Thunderbird bridge with adjustable saddles three points
    Black cover plate with picture Thunderbird and golden anniversaries
    Gold hardware
    Bullion Gold finish
    Flight case included

    UTILIZATION

    the neck is very thin, very easy to play with a pick and fingers. In comparison, a Music Man Stingray becomes a hassle.
    Ergonomics is very good, fairly balanced because of the body shape. The bass does not sting the nose as can an Epiphone.

    UTILIZATION

    the neck is very thin, very easy to play with a pick and fingers. In comparison, a Music Man Stingray becomes a hassle.
    Ergonomics is very good, fairly balanced because of the body shape. The bass does not sting the nose as can an Epiphone.
    Access to the last notes treble is difficult. for the rest, the handle is a freeway.
    the sound is very easy to obtain. This is a bass with a large output level, ideal for Fuzz and other distortions.
    It is a very versatile bass, also perfect for jazz.

    This model compared to other Thunderbird, is incredibly light. selected Mahogany is certainly for many.

    SOUNDS

    This bass is perfect for everything related to rock, stoner metal to ... Perfect also for jazz, especially for players using a pick.
    the sound is big enough, the "fat" or thick style.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have a 1977 Stingray, a Gibson Explorer Bass, a 4003 Rickenbacker 1993. This is my best bass, no doubt.
    Compared with my other basses, I like having a toy so it is easy. This model compared to other Thunderbird, is incredibly light. selected Mahogany is certainly for many.
    Excellent value for money (I got 900 euros), I do it again this choice without a doubt. You must see this as a low Thunderbird luxury at all levels. The changes are minimal, but offers a real plus. Only the finish may put off, but the bass leaves no one indifferent, and rather in the right direction. Gold Bullion finish particularly responsive to light, but never in the brilliant sense. She often gray tone.

    If you like Thunderbird, go for it before there was more.
