    i owuld say no. Trust me i just bought one 2 days its been here. and i haaaate the tone its all mud and no definition my 180$ bass plays 20X better than this, i learned a lesson in the fact that looks dont make it a good bass.

    I also would say no. The entire fretboard wasn't even shown and so are the machine heads. My j bass bought 16 years ago even looks better with all it's wear and tear.

    He says that isnt even a picture of the bass, cos he doesn't have a digital camera. If you're getting a new bass it really is advisable to see and play it first.

    I wouldn't touch it. But then I wouldn't go near one of them whatever condition and price it was ;)

    IMO Gibson = Crappy sound

    Epiphone = Death to "Music"

    Dont buy an epiphone... They Hurt music, and make it as a "Whole" feel bad...

    I don't know what used Epi Thunderbirds go for in the UK. Here in the states, they go for around $250 - $350, depending on condition and pickups. That one should sound more like a Gibson than the P/J pickup model does.

    One bad thing about Tbirds. Have you ever played one with a strap, whilst standing? They have tremendous neck dive.
