Im considering buying a thunderbird for my next bass, problem is, none of the local shops carry one so i can try em out to get a good feel for em. I've played on Ibanez and schecter so far, and I wanna branch out a little. I play a faster, technical metal, www.c2aband.com, if you wanna hear what I play to get an idea. but mainly i need a fast neck and good thick, consistent sound. Thanks for the help!
