Growling bass

Cyberino, 03.08.2018
In addition of being really beautiful and rocky, this bass has a grrrrrreat sound.
Unplugged, this neck-through bass already sounds big.
Plugged in, the two humbuckers have a big fat sound and make it sounds even bigger.
The look is just incredible and really unusual. You won't be unoticed using that bass.
A little minus' about the finition quality. The head is painted (actually everything is painted whit first than the black part of the head is painted above) and is not well painted. I'm not the only one to have this problem and, unless Epiphone changes his quality control, you better get another bass if you expect perfect finishes.
BTY, this bass does only fit in the epiphone thunderbird case (185931). You better get it too.

Laaaange took it ...

Andreas932, 17.01.2018
... until you could order it and also the final delivery took a bit longer this time, than I am used to from Thomann. Then DHL also did not really play along (5 days post), but the Thomänner can not do that. At least he's finally here. :-)

When unpacking, I first notice the tiny wood chips that I found everywhere on the bass. So first very skeptical the whole part closely inspected. But the most important thing, all chiko. All wound strings were sluggish on the fingerboard. Nix was even approximate, from which I conclude that there is no control of the instruments at Thomann or is common (with competitors already). So first vote. Lateral position flawless, collar purity impeccable. The mechanics work smoothly and I mean precisely. The neck is to my taste, you have something to touch. Head Dive? Yeah sure, but not as bad as it says again and again. Wide strap installed and good. When I think about it like that, except for a status bass I played in the 90s, I've never had a bass in my hand that was no more or less top heavy. So what. Rock'n'Roll.
Rock'n'Roll, that's the Thunderbird. Visually and in the first place also soundwise. I love the growl of the Vintage Pro. The part is wonderful in the band context. <3
If I'm so satisfied, why is there a point deduction in processing? Quite simply, the painter has a little mess on the headstock. At the transition from the white area to the black, there is a slight bleeding on my instrument in several places, ie white color where blacks should be. This is not noticeable from afar, but up close. So my other Thunderbird (from China) was perfect. I do not know if the Indonesians are sloppier. Abe is not really bad for me because everything else is just right.
I would definitely buy the Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro again, maybe in Ebony again? Let's see...
