    This is a killer Mod Shop Gibson Non-Reverse Thunderbird Ebony Satin that I got In Dec from the Mod shop directly.
    I love the tone and the looks. Everything is amazing. The only issue I am having is that even though it is a 34-inch, it really feels longer to me.
    I am not tall at all, and I am struggling to play it comfortably. I don't mind keeping it, and I might get used to it with time, but I am struggling so far.
    The satin neck makes the neck feels amazing.

    I added the upgraded hipshot bridge, which is 1,000 times better than the original.
    Open to trade for a Fender P bass custom shop, rosewood plus cash.
    Price is firm, no trades, PayPal F&F.

    PM for any questions

    That bass is awesome! How’s the neck profile on this one?

    Beautiful bass! Thunderbirds (reverse and non-reverse) feel long because of where the strap connects to the body. Fender-ish upper horns stick out to about the 12th fret. Your “upper horn” only sticks out to about the 17th fret which essentially pushes the fret board out about five frets. That’s why it feels longer.

    Makes complete sense
    I was struggling with 35” and this feels longer.
