    Gibson 2014 Thunderbird IV Electric Bass (with Case) Product Description

    As part of their 120th Anniversary, Gibson USA has reinvented several classics to match the needs of today's demanding players. The 2014 Thunderbird Bass is the roaring four-string partner to the Firebird guitar line introduced in 1963, and its soaring looks, thundering tone, and solid, full scale playability make this an unbeatable value in a handcrafted, made-in-America bass.

    Traditional Thunderbird styling and nine-ply "through neck" construction are joined by two mighty T-Bird Plus bass pickups and a rock-solid three-point adjustable bridge to deliver anything from mellow jazz lines to rumbling rock. The 34" scale fingerboard celebrates the 2014 Model Year with a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

    Body and Neck

    The core of the 2014 Thunderbird Bass lies in its "through neck" construction, with the neck and central body section fashioned from the same rugged nine-ply mahogany and walnut tonewoods for unparalleled strength and sustain. Two solid mahogany body wings complete the distinctive Thunderbird look. This full-scale 34" bass features a rosewood fingerboard that carries 20 jumbo frets, acrylic pearl dot inlays, and a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret.

    Pickups and electronics The firm sonic foundation of the Thunderbird Bass cranks through a pair of superbly versatile contemporary T-Bird Plus bass pickups, with ceramic magnets for enhanced punch and clarity. Individual volume controls and a master tone control let you blend the pickups for a wide range of sounds.

    Hardware

    A three-point T-Bird bridge in black chrome provides a rock-solid anchor at the body end for maximum resonance and sustain, with black chrome tuners at the stylish four-in-line headstock. A white pickguard with Thunderbird graphic, black truss-rod cover with Gibson logo, and black top-hat knobs with silver inserts complete the package.

    Case and Coverage

    The 2014 Thunderbird Bass comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
