Finally, I've been a member here since 97 and have searched for a long time for an Epiphone T-bird Pro IV, NEW. GOT IT last Friday. She showed up in a used hard case. I immediately pulled the factory wires and laid out some Rotosound Jazz 77 Flat wounds. Oh yes, they sound amazing!!! I hooked her up to a Fender RUMBLE 500 + 4X10 Rumble cab via MXR 108s EQ and a Fender Downtown Express pedal. Old school Funk be HAPPENING!!!
