    I thought thunderbirds had good tone?? :confused:

    everyone says some mumbo-jumbo about an "upright" vibe. Whatever, I hate Gibson anyway. Theyre a guitar player's guitar company :D
  4. That looks like a Spector REX 2000/5 with crown inlays.

    Ergo, it looks sweet.
  5. Actually, Spector built Nikki Sixx a "Spector" Thunderbird back in '90 at the end of the Kramer Era. He used that bass on the Dr. Feelgood recording. I'm not much of a Thunderbird fan but I must admit that was a sweet bass!

    Sweet! And since it's a Roscoe, you know that it will have an absolute killer B string.
