Epiphone is proud to introduce the Thunderbird Vintage PRO Bass, which offers a ultra-accurate re-creation of the classic bass that debuted back in 1963. Holding down the low-end on hit tracks from legendary rock bands including The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Cheap Trick, the Thunderbird Vintage PRO gives bassists the opportunity to get their hands on an old-school-style bass without the massive vintage price tag.

Featuring the instantly-recognizable body designed in the early '60s by world-renowned automotive designer Ray Dietrich, the Thunderbird Vintage PRO features mahogany body wings and a 7-ply mahogany/walnut laminate through-body neck for killer tone and sustain. For a classic feel, the 34"-scale neck is shaped into a 1960's rounded bass profile and topped with a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets.

For pure vintage Thunderbird tone, the Thunderbird Vintage PRO comes loaded up with a pair of ProBucker Bass #760 humbuckers that are sure to deliver plenty of that legendary Thunderbird low end you crave. Inspired by the original Thunderbird pickups from the '60s, these ProBuckers sport 18% nickel covers, German manufactuered Elektrisola magnet wire, Alnico IV sand cast magnets, and braided coaxial lead wire. The pickups are also wax potted to combat microphonics. Capped with gold "Top Hat" knobs with chrome inserts, the controls include independent volume controls for each pickup and a Master Tone control.

As you'd expect, the Thunderbird Vintage PRO Bass comes equipped with accurate vintage-style nickel-plated hardware including open-gear tuners with historic "Clover" buttons and a '60s style Tune-O-Matic bridge with a Claw tailpiece. Futher catering to the authentic vibe of this vintage-inspired bass, the Thunderbird Vintage PRO boasts an array of period-correct adornments including pearloid dot fretboard inlays, a traditional Thunderbird headstock with a black truss rod cover featuring a '60s-era Epiphone gold silkscreened logo, and a 3-ply white/black pickguard with the original "Thunderbird" logo in black. Case not included.
