Epiphone Thunderbird IV VSB

Thunderbird IV Electric BassEven though Epiphone's American sister company Gibson was less successful with their bass guitars, one bass model did manage to establish itself and has been - and continues to be - used in the first league: The Thunderbird, which aesthetically is already a magnet with its extraordinary Firebird-like shape.

Epiphone brings with the Thunderbird IV a cheap and convincing copy onto the market. Mahogany body and maple neck, together with the two humbuckers, produce crisp pushing rock sounds that fit exactly to such a bass.

Thunderbird IV

Niels T., 16.12.2013
Bought this guitar around april 2013.

My first thoughts on this Bass were very good, It looked and felt amazing, a bit heavy but comfortable enough to play.
The sound that this in combination with my Orange Crush 100bxt blasts is superb, really love the deep but still trebly bass sound. It has a nice rock and maybe even metal sound.

However after half a year the jack output connector of the bass was coming loose, and the washer that are on the tuning machines are breaking. I always handle my guitars with care and keep them in their bags safely stored away, so it really as some flaws.
I think there's a lack of quality on the used electronics and mechanics on this Bass.

But for a 250EUR bass guitar i think it's a nice axe.

Great bass from Epiphone

Christopher L. 18, 23.10.2013
Epiphone continues to surprise me in a very positive way. Been in a band with a bass player who is owner of an Epiphone Thunderbird and it had a great sound, even compared to some of his more expensive basses. When it was time to get myself a bass, mainly for studio recording, Epiphone Thunderbird felt like a great choice.

The mahogny body is heavy which gives it a robust feeling and adds to the deep sound of the instrument. The graining on the bass I got from Thomann was absolutely beautiful. The pickups are clear and distinct. It is of course not a Gibson, but among the Epiphone versions I played this is by far the closets to a Gibson I've ever tried. Could highly recommend it to anyone in search of a great sounding, nice looking and comfortable instrument to a very affordable price.
