Gibson Thunderbird Bass Tobacco Burst
Gibson Thunderbird Bass - Tobacco Burst
During the 1950s Fender pretty much ruled the roost when it came to electric basses but Gibson changed all that when they debuted the Thunderbird in 1963. Its 34" scale length, neck-through construction and humbucking pickups were an instant hit with musicians, and it has continued to inspire ever since.
The Gibson Thunderbird features a 9-ply mahogany and walnut neck that is extremely solid, needing fewer truss-rod adjustments over time and greatly increasing tuning stability. Impressive amounts of sustain are achieved thanks to the full 34" scale and neck-through-body construction while the rounded neck profile feels great across all 20 frets. The rosewood fretboard adds to the low-end response for an even fuller tone.
Aesthetically, the offset mahogany body and reverse headstock design are at once classic and futuristic creating a bold, confident impression that will ensure folks know the bass has arrived. Gibson have chosen a nitrocellulose lacquer that allows the instrument to "breathe" and will gain a unique character with time that will add lustre to the stunning Tobacco Burst finish.
Providing the power are two T-Bird humbuckers with individual volume controls and a master tone. These pickups utilise ceramic magnets to produce a high-output rumble with an incredible low-frequency response that can be sculpted to suit a vast range of styles. Finally, the Gibson Thunderbird comes with a 3-point adjustable bridge and Grover tuners so you can get the perfect setup and stay in tune no matter how hard you rock.
