    Rare limited run 2011 Gibson T-bird short scale (30.5") in excellent condition. Very light weight (will try to get actual weight posted soon). Big T-bird sound in a diminutive package! Comes with Gibson hard case.

    I still have the original white pickguard. It is currently back on the bass.

    Price is $1200.00 USD plus shipping to lower 48/Canada.

    I'm not interested in trades at the moment.

    Gibson blurb:
    Like several classic Gibson tone machines, the Thunderbird Short Scale Bass has a body crafted from solid mahogany in the classic "Reverse-Bodied" shape, finished in a tactile grain-textured Satin Ebony nitrocellulose finish that looks instantly "played-in" and feels great under the fingertips, and offset by a white pickguard with Thunderbird motif. It has a glued-in neck made from superior quarter-sawn mahogany for improved strength and superior resonance, and a rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets. The neck is carved to a comfortable Thunderbird profile and measures .850" deep at the 1st fret and .900" at the 12th, with a width of 1.60" across its PLEK-cut Corian nut.

    Strings are anchored at the body end by a rock-solid three-point Thunderbird bridge with individually adjustable saddles, and high-quality Grover tuners at the headstock, all plated in black to match the rockin' look of the Thunderbird Short Scale Bass. All this tonal goodness is cranked through a pair of contemporary Thunderbird Bass pickups, with ceramic magnets for enhanced punch and clarity. Individual volume controls and a master tone control allow you to blend pickups as desired for a wide range of tones. Pack it all together, and it's a great looking, smooth playing, and fierce sounding bass that a lot of players will appreciate.

    So with the shorter neck does this bass balance well on a strap?

    It does! No neck dive or long reach to those first couple of frets.

    Hey there,
    Fairly new to this talkbass site/forum.
    However, I came across your beautiful Gibson T-Bird short scale bass. Was wondering if you have any wiggle room on price and how much it would cost to ship to Lethbridge, AB.
