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 profile 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.
