The Epiphone Goth Thunderbird Bass puts a new twist on an old favorite and with a Pitch Black finish, becomes the black diamond of the Goth collecton. The Thunderbird first issued from the legendary Kalamazoo factory in 1963 was for a time the only bass available from Gibson or Epiphone. But really, what else could you need? The Thunderbird’s unique “reversed” zig-zag body design and equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, who was enlisted by the Kalamazoo factory to bolster the guitar lines of the early ’60s and help solidify the factory’s eminent rank among solidbody electric guitar manufacturers. The Thunderbird bass was quickly embraced by rock and rollers in the States and in England and Europe, and today is still the ultimate rock and roll low end machine. Building upon the long-term success of the classic Thunderbird, Epiphone introduces the Goth Thunderbird-IV for serious rockers only. Case not included.

beautiful bass!


this bass is amazing!! picked it up today, played it in sam ash for a little, and the sound is just amazing! only problem, but not a big deal, is that the odd shape is a little uncomfortable to play while sitting down. not a big deal, a few adjustments should be ok. the body is PHENOMENAL. such a beautiful, smooth looking bass!

i've had this bass for half a year now and it still amazes me, its got great sound, gorgeous looks, and a great price.the only thing is it is unbalanced, but the right strap can easily fix that, like with mine.

I bought it a year and half more or less, It's great, sound is very rockin! Look's awesome! The thing is that you have to buy with it a strap that wont slidedown on your shoulder because of it's design and weight... in all the rest It's great to play live!
