    I just noticed that the neck pickup tone is set at 7.5 but the bridge pup tone and the VOLUME SWITCHES ARE ALL SET TO 10.

    wow i'm jealous... i've wanted a black ripper for a long time...

    i did have a blonde ripper once (attached is the seller's old photo). it was advertised to have exact replacement aftermarket pickups, but it was not the case and it was in fact DIY routed like an empty pool under the pickguard. the pickups were not so great, really microphonic and no company made matching replacement pickups. so i ended up selling it. played great and looked awesome, but those aftermarket pickups really killed the sound.

    '76 Thunderbird. I am the original owner.

  20. I owned a ThunderBird in the 70's and I can't for the life of me remember why I sold it??

    Nice looking bass Showdown!
