Nothing but truth!

Greco's are the original Angry Birds

Loud and a bit raunchy, I love mine

Would anyone mind reviewing this and commenting if they have relative input: Epiphone Thunderbird vs Pro IV model

My homemade RayBird, with a single Artec mudbucker, coil-tapped. On/off/on switch. Settings are Stun, Silent, and Kill.



This is the first (and simplest) of three 'Birds I'm building.

Can you describe what you did? Why is the bridge so far down for example?

In the interest of balance. It's a lefty StingRay copy neck, 34" scale. Lightweight tuners, beefy BadAss bridge. I carved the lower horn, so I can reliably access all but the last two frets. But I hardly ever play up there anyway.

I'm gonna post this one here... Something smells, and I'm not sure why:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gibson-Thund...item19d894c84f

1) The jack on the front as opposed to a side mount.
2) The serial number says 'Thunderbird'
3) The guy taking the pictures is wearing a motorcycle helmet with an iridescent shield.

What do you say???

1. 70s Thunderbirds have the jack on the front.

2. Some 70s Thunderbirds have the word "Thunderbird" by the serial number. It is a sticker under the finish. '76s and I believe early 77s did. Then they switched to the stamped numbers for late 77 and 79 iirc.

That looks like a legit 76 to me.

I'd say it's a legit '76 or early '77 before Gibson switched from a decalled S/N (with a different date code system) to a simpler stamped into the wood code. It's got all of it's parts, bridge and pickup cover - the jack is exactly where it's supposed to be. If it's a true '76 it's one of only 91 produced in black that year..............Bad ass!

So the oval ring around the serial is part of the sticker... Thanks!

Although I wouldn't call that a "hairline" crack...

I do like the photos wearing the motorcycle helmet, too!
