Finally my Gibson T-Bird sounds good.

Csaba V., 27.05.2017
The Gibson Thunderbird is the most comfortable bass guitar in the world for me.

But the sound... oh my god. Its old. I know there is a "vintage revival" going around - but man, teh T-Bird with it's stock Gibson pickups sounds old - with almost every other bass out there the fight for you to be heared in the mix it is a lot easier.

And low and behold - here comes EMG with pickups that fit in the T-Bird.
Finally - we'be got more than the TB HZ pickups.

My Gibson sounds modern. Sounds great - lots of tonal options with the push-pull setting. Especially with a EMG BTC system added. (it juuust fits into the bass - but the electronics cover you have to raise above the indent - ala Spector style - where the cover is not in line with the back of the guitar but kind of sits on it).

There is nothing new to be told about the EMG TB TW... it is a TW pickup that fits into the TBird.

Thank You EMG.

Thomann .... please get the other T-Bird pickups from EMG ... DC, CS, P ...

I'd like to try them out, too :D
