F/S Epiphone Elite Thunderbird
These instruments that were crafted at the Fuji-gen and Terada locations are regarded by many as being as good (if not better) than any US made Gibson T-Bird.
The pickups are US made T-Bird pups.
The workmanship is superb... however, contrary to how they were originally advertised, these necks are glued and not thru-body.
The neck, by the way, is soooo nice! Super fast! If you like Jazz necks, you'll LOVE THIS.
This one is in great shape... one little indentation on the front at the top (that would not come through in photos).
No buckle rash of any kind.
A b-w-b pickguard was custom made for the bass, and is included.
Strap locks, installed.
Plastic pickup rings were replaced with chrome, and vintage-correct pickup and bridge covers installed.
The leather handle of the case just started to tear a bit, but a leather worker can easily fix...
$900 shipped for this elegant beauty.
PM with questions and pic requests.
...sorry! Those pics are a little dark!
Here are some more... More to come!
In the studio...
$900 SHIPPED is a DEAL (bump)!!!
All the GIBSON T-Birds I tried didn't hold a candle to this one!
I've been trying to add a sound file so y'all can hear it, but so far I've had no luck! :help:
I'll try again later!
These are stunning- both in sound and build quality. I had one for a couple years, and loved it. Totally different animal than the bolt-on Epis.
The TB+ pickups roar, the wiring in mine was all done with braided push-back wire and very nicely executed, the hardware was on par with any Gibson I've ever played, and the poly finish was expertly applied, and nice and thin- like you'd expect on a pro instrument. The back looks black in photos, but on mine it was actually transparent if you look hard enough. Couldn't even tell that it was a set neck- not that that is even an issue (the non-revrse Gibsons were set neck as well).
Anyway - fantastic basses!!! Had I not had to sacrifice for my '76, I would still have mine.
Here are some photos showing how closely these resemble the 1970s Thunderbirds- slender body, neck and all.
Any takers?!? PM me!!! She's a beaut!
Here are some more pics... a bit clearer than the previous ones.
