Gibson Thunderbird Studio 4-String Bass Guitar Review :: Bass Guitars Reviews
The alternative bass since 1963!
The Thunderbird Studio brings together the original 1963 “reverse body” Firebird shape with Gibson’s traditional, proven “set neck” design. The result is an unbeatable combination of style, performance and affordability.
It was a wild-looking bass in ’63 and still is today. This version combines the reverse body and headstock styling of the original with Gibson’s proven set-neck construction. Made in the U.S. of mahogany and equipped with Grover tuners and 2 TB Plus ceramic humbuckers. A classic thumper with a strong alternative vibe. Includes Gibson hardshell case. A cool bass for a great price. Order yours today.
