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.
Overall i am extremely pleased with this product. It was packaged really well and there are no signs of damage. I got this bass guitar with the bundle which saved me a lot of money. Buying the items at my local music store would have cost a fortune.
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.
After playing several Gibson thunderbirds i decided to give a shot in the Epiphone Bass line and couldn't be more happy! Feels and sound as good as a gibson the only thing i don't really like is the bolt-on neck but for the price, i couldn't ask more!
