    Hi , up for sale is an excellent 2013 Gibson Thunderbird with Thunderbucker Ranch '66 pickups , Hipshot USA tuners , pearloid pickguard, and fret decals ( looks amazing , imo , but easily removed ). This bass plays and sounds fantastic. I don't feel any neck dive, either ! Just a beautiful bass , all around. I smashed my left index finger in a trailer hitch accident and need about 6 months of rehab. Great condition , hardship case , straps, straplocks are included. $1300 shipped Con US.

    Thunderbird love is in my flock. We all need one more, and yours sure fits the bill. My wife thinks otherwise, unfortunately. That's a fantastic 'Bird with the mods I would want, too. All chromed out, Thunderbuckers... Somebody will be thrilled with it.

    Yes sorry to hear about the finger ... heal fast.

    What's the difference in pups from the stock verses ranch 66's ?

    I have both pickups in different basses. The stock Gibson’s are darker, which isn’t always a bad thing. The ‘66 are more lively and clear, yet still pretty aggressive like a T Bird should be. The sellers bass, with those mods is a great bass at a very good price, IMO. It would cost a lot more to buy a Gibson and do those mods yourself for sure. Whoever gets this is gonna be a happy bass player :)

    Thanks DOR .... I was just over on the tbird thread .... I have never owned one.
    I would guess they are an easy swap if you wanted to do so.

    The mid complexities of the Thunderbuckers are tough to beat. There's also a lot of depth in the tone. I doubt you'd want to swap them. Sounds flippin' amazing with a pick, too.

    If you are a 'Bird player, one will find you. If that's the one, then that's the one. If not, then it didn't choose you. That's how you know. A Thunderbird claims you.

    I seriously can’t believe this bass is still for sale. Those pickups are amazing. To buy a 2013 stock Gibson and mod it to this spec would easily be over $1,500, probably more

    Sounds like your 'Bird chose you.
