    You know the rule....

    "No boots, no 'Bird, no Glam!"

    Overend Watts ( Great stage name!) White Thunderbird is owned by a TB'er, tho it looks pretty "used" at this point.

    That really should be a Gibson Signature series...
     
  8. Nice axe. But I wonder why Gibson changed the tuners on later ones? My old T-Bird also had the 'deluxe' Y tuners, which bugged me.

    When they re -introduced the Thunderbird in '89 it came with a smaller headstock and the Y tuners and black hardware. The one I am playing is the infamous Butcherbird a 2001. Deepened cutaway, chrome hardware, Badass bridge and a Dimarzio Model G now under a '76 chrome cover. Here is a close up. Charwithmytbird001. Also for fun my restored '67 NR no action shots yet.

    Those smart enough to use a Thunderbird are also smart enough to move the strap locks and get the proper strap for use with one. ;)
