    Here is my new beauty, few days old. This is such a beast of a bass, it has growl for days and it's built like a rock, heavy machinery for sure. Can't wait to play it in a band this week.

    Wanted one for years. Finally found a nice used one with a Hipshot bridge and a tapered hardshell case.
    Absolutely no reason to buy a Gibson now that I own a Thunderbird every bit as good.

    Nice, congrats.

    A Thunderbird is on my "want" list, but I find the narrow nut a bit too narrow for my liking. Need to find one with a wider nut/string spacing. The Epiphone bolt-ons have wide nuts, but I'd want at least a set or through neck version.

    Thank you! I never had any experience with thunderbirds but this one was gold when I tried it!

    Wow, nice catch, I agree, no reason to buy Gibson at all.

    Thank you! Yes I took pictures, more like an art photos not commercial ones.
    I actually like this spacin so much, but I'm not very picky either.
