Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro Bass Tobacco Sunburst

The Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro Electric Bass is an accurate reproduction of the original bass from the 1960s, taking inspiration from car tail fins of the 1950s. Its mahogany body wings feature elegant contours, which offer both comfort and style. A neck-through construction offers smooth playability on the higher frets, while the rosewood fingerboard provides a warm tone with a natural feel. A pair of new ProBucker #760 bass humbuckers deliver a classic bass tone, that will cut through any mix. With all these great features and affordable price, the Thunderbird Vintage Pro Electric Bass is perfect for beginners, or anyone wanting a classic tone and appearance.

Thunderbird Body Shape

Crafted from mahogany, the Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro Electric Bass offers top quality and the perfect resonance. Originally designed by car designer Ray Dietrich in the 1960s, who based the design on 1950's car tail-fins, the classic Thunderbird body shape provides the ultimate comfort as well as a renowned style icon. Its elegant contours and cutaway, allows for fluid hand flexibility across the full fingerboard, for a comfortable performance.

Neck & Fingerboard

As well as offering a comfortable and stylish mahogany body, the Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro Electric Bass also features a 1960's rounded bass profile neck, just like the original. With its neck-through construction, players can achieve smooth playability on the higher frets, and enhanced sustain and resonance. The mahogany neck also features an adjustable truss rod for the perfect set up, and a rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets.

ProBucker Bass Pickups

For that classic 1960 vintage tone, the Thunderbird Vintage Pro Electric Bass is equipped with a pair of ProBucker Bass Pickups. These pickups are crafted with same process as the ProBucker and P-90 PRO, and feature 18% nickel silver covers with German manufactured Elektrisola Magnet wire, Alnico IV sand cast magnets, and braided coaxial lead wire. Each pickup is also wax potted to eliminate undesirable microphonics. Control knob options include individual Volume controls and a master Tone.
