The Gibson Thunderbird IV bass joined Gibson's distinguished lineup shortly after its introduction in 1963. The Thunderbird's unique reversed zig-zag body design and the equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, enlisted by Gibson to bolster the guitar lines of the early '60s and help solidify the company's eminent rank among solid-body electric guitar manufacturers.
This limited edition Thunderbird 4-string with its "thunderous sound” is still a benchmark of innovation, functionality, and style, and continues to symbolize Gibson's drive to achieve creative excellence.
The 2019 model features a solid mahogany body and wings, 9-ply multi-laminate mahogany/walnut neck, rosewood fingerboard, black tophat knobs with silver inserts knobs, extra-large strap button, Tektoid nut, 34" scale, T-Bird pickups, black chrome hardware, and a 3-point adjustable bridge. Includes a hardshell case.
