    The Epiphone Thunderbird, that is. I ordered one for christmas a while back and it just showed up today. WoooW! This thing roars like a monster from a nightmare. Arrived perfectly set-up with good strings, it adds a new sound to my "pop" punk band that wasn't there before. While the P-Bass sound from my MiM fender was powerful, I admit, I didn't sound to different from every other teenage punk bassist with a pick. Now, now I have what I personally feel to be my own sound.

    I know that these Epibirds are nothing new and that plenty of you have played them, but I'm rather excited and feel the need to make my own thread about it. :hyper:
    The neck dive really does exist, but it doesn't bother me. I played it for a while standing up with a $3.00 ernie ball strap and have dismissed the overall weight of the instrument as a non-issue, no shoulder pain from an hour and a half of playing. (( Just a side note to what many would consider to be the cons of the instrument ))

    I know the "no pic no bass" rule and, though it is not a rare bass, will post pics as soon as I've had my fun.

    Rock On Talkbass'ers,
    Vincent Grim :bassist:
