  1. craZzy Question....

    did Gibson ever produce a Thunderbird with a maple fingerboard?

    I seeem to remember seeing a Black Thunderbird with a bounded Mapel neck with Black Block inlays...

    but i was told at a shop that they didnt and u cant get one from the Custom shop...??

    is this true....


    Twiggy Ramirez has a White Thunderbird with Mapel neck..?...
  2. the Gibson custom shop built weird matching Firebird/Jazz hollowbody Thunderbird/Jazz hollowbody models for ZZTop, which were all-white, including the fingerboard- I assume the T-bird neck was all-maple?

    FWIW they offered a maple fingerboard on the RD Artist bass.

    As well as the Grabber, G3 and the Ripper. But AFAIK, there was never a stock maple board TBird.
