    Why does everyone go for sunburst on T-Birds? I love the look of the vintage white..

    Oh my goodness...I would kill for a classic white Gibson T-bird. I've never seen any pictures of it though...online, catalogs; nothin! :( Anybody have one?
  12. I'm just curious to know what the quality of the new epiphone thundebirds is like. I haven't heard too many good things about them (everyone seems to suggest that the pickups need replacement).

    Sometimes it's the only option ya have. When I bought mine it has been the only one I have ever seen in a store around here. I don't think Epi. makes any other color except for the goth thing.
    I really like that white one. :)

    The neck plat on back says Hand Crafted in Korea, and set up in the USA. Mine has a little buzz on the G string I could stop it if I raised the action, but I like where it is right now. IMO the pickups are great/Good I like to roll back the neck pickup some and keep the bridge pick up full. I get a kind of hollow body sound. It also gives it a nice growl. I think the pickups are also more mid range on the Epi. T-Bird.
    For less than a MIM Fender Jazz(which I think i might get for my next bass :D) it down right rocks
