Gibson Thunderbird Studio 5-String Bass Guitar Review :: Bass Guitars Reviews

The alternative bass since 1963!

Gibson Thunderbird Studio 5-String Bass Guitar

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.
The alternative bass since 1963!
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, 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.
