I hardly ever post here, but I figured this would be a good occasion to do so! Alright, so I'm primarily a Fender guy, but I've been a little unfaithful lately . Just came in the other day, my 3rd ebay instrument purchase. Been wanting one of these for awhile. It's an Epiphone Thunderbird Classic Pro-IV, the neck-thru model with Gibson pickups in it. She's a refurbished model, so I got it for a good price. Gotta say, playing it is... Weird. For me anyway. The neck is nice but the body shape is very strange to someone like me who's been used to playing Jazz or Precision basses their whole musical life. So not weird in a bad way. The pickups? Holy crap, these pickups are HOT. Very loud too, lots of low-end rumble. Guess they don't call 'em THUNDERbirds for no reason, eh? All in all, I like it. The finish is gorgeous, and it seems to be well built.
