Thunderbird IV Electric Bass

Even though Epiphone's American sister company Gibson was less successful with their bass guitars, one bass model did manage to establish itself in the first league: the Thunderbird, which sports magnetic aesthetics by way of its extraordinary Firebird-like shape.

Epiphone brings with the Thunderbird IV an affordable and convincing copy onto the market. A mahogany body and maple neck together with two humbuckers produce crisp thrusting rock sounds that suits such a bass perfectly.

  • Pickups: 2 Humbuckers

Great bass

Sound is quite soft and metallic. Great for metal and punk-rock music. I'm happy!

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 250€ bass guitar i think it's a nice axe.

I really like this bass. I am a left and I set it up left handed. This works really well with this kind of bass because of the unusual body shape. I was able to set it up with very nice low action without and buzzing. Very easily adjustable bridge. Hum-buckers are great but I tend to prefer a single coil sound these days. The finish was top quality. Easily one of the best value budget basses around.
