    Hello to all cool bassists around the world.

    I have the oppurtunity to buy a thunderbird IV or a thunderbird V. I wanted to ask those who know the difference between the two (i mean those who can state really the difference not because they own the IV they say the IV is the best and vice-versa...), which one should i look for? - the IV or the V?

  3. The V is a 5-string with a P-J configuration and the IV is a four with two soapbars. That's about all I know, but at least it has something to do with the BASS ;-)
     
  4. Two of my friends have Epihpone Tbirds. Theyre 4 string P-J pickup combo. What model is that?
     

  5. I just soooooo cannnot believe you found this! LMFAO!!!

    Who mentioned basses? He just asked "cool bassists" about Thunderbirds. Well I am a cool bassist who used to collect Thunderbird models - my favourite was a working model of Thunderbird 4 which was about 15" long and actually worked underwater with lights and everything! :rolleyes:
