    Gibson Thunderbird Studio Non-Reverse Electric Bass Product Description

    The Gibson Thunderbird Studio Non-Reverse is a classic four-string electric bass that will provide soaring tones and thundering lows to the modern bassist. With classic asymmetrical offset body lines, cutting-edge hardware and a pair of the four-string world's best-sounding pickups, the Thunderbird Studio Non-Reverse bass will take you from rock, to pop, to jazz, to blues, to fusion with equal fluency.

    This full-sized bass with a scale length of 34 inches has supreme playability you have come to expect from Gibson USA. The Thunderbird Studio bass is primed for the demands of modern music, and it looks stunning in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish, enhanced by black-plated hardware and solid-black pickup covers.


    Gibson crafts the Thunderbird Non-Reverse Bass with select tonewoods, carefully crafted for optimum sonic response. A solid mahogany body is carved in the iconic offset-cutaway style of the legendary 1965 Firebird guitar and Thunderbird bass. It has a glued-in neck made from solid, quarter-sawn mahogany for superior strength and resonance, which is carved in a comfortably rounded and supremely playable profile, with a distinctive four-a-side Thunderbird 'beak' headstock.

    The fingerboard on this bass is made from rosewood for a classic look, clear tone, and unprecedented durability. In addition, a hardwearing PLEK-cut Corian nut helps to ensure precise intonation, while enhancing sustain and resonance.


    Strings are anchored at the body end by a rock-solid three-point Thunderbird bridge with individually adjustable saddles, and high-quality Grover tuners at the headstock, all plated in black to match the contemporary look of the Thunderbird Non-Reverse Bass.


    A pair of contemporary Thunderbird Bass pickups with ceramic magnets provide enhanced punch and clarity, giving the Gibson Thunderbird Non-Reverse Bass the power to slam the low end with depth and dynamics like no other bass available. Individual volume controls and a master tone control allow you to blend pickups as desired for a wide range of tones.
