Gibson Thunderbird 2018 - Vintage Sunburst

Iconic Gibson 4-string

The Gibson Thunderbird Bass is an classic choice of low-end sonic potency . You get high output and oodles bottom end from two ceramic magnet humbuckers and near endless sustain by merit of a 14-degree headstock angle, neck-through construction, and 3-point bridge. Since its inception in the 1960s, the Thunderbird Bass has been a icon of hard rock low end.

Neck-through-body construction

The Gibson Thunderbird's neck/body centerpiece are assembled from solid mahogany — as are the two wings glued to each side to form the Thunderbird's striking silhouette. The mahogany gives the bass its warm and punchy tone that makes it great for rock 'n' roll. Gluing the pieces together ensures maximum wood-to-wood contact, allowing the neck and body to function as a single unit. Neck-through-body construction ensures improved tone and sustain, as well as a perfect neck alignment.a

Angled headstock

The Gibson Thunderbird's headstock is carved out of the same piece of mahogany as the neck. It's set to a 14-degree angle (instead of the traditional 17 degrees), to allow for the headstock's distinctive shape and to keep proper pressure on the strings. This headstock arrangement ensures straight string pull, which — when combined with the increased string pressure — means there's no loss of string vibration between the Tektoid nut and the tuners. The result? Better sustain.
