    I am considering getting a V and really like the vibe of a T'Bird. Any owner reviews and/or opinions?
     
  2. If you use search you will find a lot of threads about Thunderbirds. They are discussed a lot on TB. :)

    I'll trade you 4 of your colored GibsonBirds for my Jackbird---you can keep the Fenderbird as a keepsake since you put it together :D

    I love mine, though it rarely gets out to any gigs cuz the case is huge and a decent gigbag for it is impossible to find. Looks great, no neck dive, deep and dark sounding, more versatile than I expected, great action. I'm used to a bit more highs on my basses, but like that this one has a completely different character. It's also the only passive bass I own.

    If you see a 5 you like, go for it because they don't make em anymore and there are very few (if any) new ones left. I believe I got my hands on the last black one available in any online stores a few months ago.
