To equip the Thunderbird IV Bass with the instantly recognizable thump you’d expect from a versatile bass, Gibson went with the tried-and-true combination of a mahogany body and a multi-piece mahogany/walnut laminate neck with rosewood fingerboard. This gives you an amazing balance of chest-pounding resonance and the fast response you need to pull off percussive bass lines. And thanks to its narrow 1.6″ nut, you don’t have to have massive hands to rock out with a Thunderbird IV Bass.
Bass humbuckers deliver earth-shaking bass tone
For big bass tone, the Gibson Thunderbird IV Bass comes with a pair of TB Plus humbuckers. Gibson designed these pickups with ceramic magnets to give you punch and clarity. The rest of the band will love your bass’s huge, full sound with a tight bottom end. You’ll keep the band rocking all night with the Gibson Thunderbird IV Bass.
Top notch hardware that’s ready to work
You’ll find a collection of professional appointments that make the Gibson Thunderbird IV Bass a true workhorse. For instance, its Grover tuners and 3-point adjustable tailpiece give you amazing tuning stability. Two ceramic magnet pickups deliver big bass tone and the PLEK-cut nut ensures perfect intonation. This Thunderbird bass has a banner inlay at the 12th fret to celebrate Gibson’s 120th Anniversary.
