    1. I haven't had any troubles with neckdive, high or low...

    2. You get a hardcase with all the thunderbird models.

    That's it ^^ - (somone correct me if i'm wrong)

    When I played a Nikki Sixx Blackbird, it dove no matter where you slung it. It's a neck heavy instrument and slinging it lower doesn't make it dive less. You'll need a strap that clings to your shirt in order to keep it from diving. However, the T-bird studio supposedly dives less due to a slightly lower mass headstock. I have no experience with this model.

    Can't help you with a gig bag.
  4. 2.) don't quote me on this, but it looks like it might fit in a standard bag

    as for the gigbag.... i even think that the epiphone model includes a hardcase.... it should anyway.... it's a long bass....
