    I have searched all over the internet, and cant seem to find anything about my bass. It is an epiphone thunderbird. Year... i dont know... the serial number i can post in a few days. the problem is that it has a non-reverse body with a reverse style headstock. I am just confused so i was just wondering if anyone had ANY info. thank you

    Is it a bolt-on? (sorry, I don't know anything about them to know if they are BO or Neck-thru) but if it's a bolt-on, then it's possible that it has a non-original neck from a reverse thunderbird.

    The current Epi Tbird is a bolt-on. I doubt very much if there is any replacement neck available for it with a different headstock. But, it is not a non-reverse either.

    If the bass in question is a neck-through, non-reverse Epi... That's why I suggested to throw things to the 'Pit.
