Epiphone Gothic Thunderbird IV Bass (Pitch Black)
The Epiphone Gothic Thunderbird IV is Epiphone's way of taking one of their best-selling basses and making is even better! It has the classic look and feel of the legendary Thunderbird, and adds a pair of ceramic TB Plus pickups and all-black gothic appointments. This bass is seriously made to rock!
Other standard Thunderbird IV features include a mahogany body, a hard maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and black hardware.
Here's what's Epiphone have to say about it themselves...
The Thunderbird’s unique “reversed” zig-zag body design and equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, who was enlisted by the Kalamazoo factory to bolster the guitar lines of the early ’60s and help solidify the factory’s eminent rank among solidbody electric guitar manufacturers. The Thunderbird bass was quickly embraced by rock and rollers in the States and in England and Europe, and today is still the ultimate rock and roll low end machine. Building upon the long-term success of the classic Thunderbird, Epiphone introduces the Goth ThunderbirdTM IV for serious rockers only.
