Control comes in the form of individual volume pots for each pickup, and a master tone control. The fat yet controlled output of these beauties is staggering, offering a weighty blast that can be tempered using the control pots. In addition to the controls there are two coil-tap switches, furthering the already incredible tonal versatility offered by this heavenly instrument. By tweaking the individual pickup volume controls, and master tone, a wide variety of tones from big, full and earth shaking, to punchy and articulate can be created.

No matter how aggressively you attack the strings, you can rest assured that this workhorse will back you up every step of the way.To top things off, a Gibson hard case is included to keep your Thunderbird protected, wherever your music may take you.
