Thunderbird Bass, Ebony

The Gibson Thunderbird has the classic reverse body and headstock design as
originally introduced in 1963 as Gibson's first neck-through-body bass design. The
traditional 9-ply mahogany/walnut neck through body construction provides a
thundering low end response and a piano like sustain. The narrow nut width and
rounded neck prole neck feels both fast and intuitive. The Thunderbird high output,
ceramic magnet loaded humbucking pickups (neck and bridge) deliver the sonic and
iconic low end voice for which the Thunderbird is known. Available in 2 classic
finishes: Tobacco Burst and Ebony.
