Gibson Thunderbird Bass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by fusion, Jul 30, 2001.


  1. Just got a brand new Gibson Thunderbird bass today. It is awesome!!!!! I think Thunderbirds get a bad rap for being heavy and unbalanced, but they actually are not and the necks are awesome, kinda like a jazz bass. And it does Thunder!!!!!! I was so excited, I just had to tell somebody.

    people are more and more influenced by stupid endorsment! you're right some brand made a fortune on that and others not.

  9. Truly delicious! Congrats, man. It seems that Gibson basses, new or vintage are starting to get the respect they've deserved for years. Go Thunderbirds.
