    Any other players out there? I can't even remember if this particular instrument has had its own thread. If so it's been so long we should reignite one anyway. Really loving how mine non reverse sounds through my Ashdown rig. Took me awhile to figure out exactly how to really dial it in, but I've really been surprised at how efficient it is through so many different styles. Not to mention people don't automatically assume you play cock rock when they see it.

    I've been playing nonreverse Thunderbirds since '77, I have a pretty good collection of 60's birds and the 2013 offering. Love your bird, stop by the Thunderbird club and join the party! 20190331_031051.jpg

    I love mine. Didn't think I would, but just has a lot of class to it without being too boring.

    No offense but I always thought they looked like a lefty that they changed their minds on half way through.

    I love the Gibby T-Bird and hope to own one someday but probably not the non reverse
    Again no offense meant to you
    Maybe I just haven’t seen the right one?

    I think it is definitely an acquired taste!
