Do they exist? I have been looking for some inexpensive rockbass(since my Ibanez Soundgear has become bit boring), and Epi Thunderbird seems like one. I'm going to give one a testdrive soon. I have seen someone mention Thunderbird 5-strings over the net but I cannot find any info at Gibson's or Epiphone's websites, or actually anywhere. Any pros&cons about these basses are appriciated too.
