What we say:

At A Glance:

Presenting the classic reverse body and headstock design, the Gibson Thunderbird is a standout model!

First introduced in 1963 as Gibson's first neck-through-body designed bass, this beast provides an erupting low end response and sustain capabilities reminiscent of a piano.

Delivering the sound itself are the Thunderbird high output, ceramic magnet loaded humbucking pickups that produce the low end voice that made the Thunderbird famous!

Features We Love:

'Rounded' Neck Profile

This model benefits from Gibson's 'Rounded' neck shape which is slightly larger and sits nicely in your hand while you play. Offering access to the whole fretboard, the 'Rounded' shape continues to offer comfort over extended sessions where slimmer necks may not.

Stand-Out Style

One thing about the Thunderbird bass is that it's pretty recognisable. This instrument's jarring style is certain to catch an eye or two. If the front-person in your band is stealing all of the limelight on stage then this bass may be what you need to get your fair share of the attention!


  • A stylistic icon, this bass is sure to get you noticed!
  • The 'Rounded' neck profile feels great in your hand
