Thunderbird Pro series offers 4 and 5 string versions in three colours 07-Jan-10
Building upon the long-term success of the Thunderbird bass, Epiphone has introduced the new professional series Thunderbird Pro's. Here's what they have to say about them in their own words...
Available in both 4 and 5 string versions, THE original "rock and roll" bass with the distinctive shape combines traditional design elements with new technology - all for a price that the working bassist can afford.
The Thunderbird PRO's feature a rock-solid, 7-piece (Walnut/Maple) neck with through-body construction for amazing sustain and tone. Add to that, Epiphone's new T-Pro bass humbucking pickups with custom active electronics and EQ and suddenly, the Thunderbird transforms into a very versatile bass capable of a wide variety of tonal options.
Other features include premium die-cast 14:1 bass machine heads, a "bad ass" fully-adjustable bridge and SlimTaper neck profile with Epi-designed straight-string pull headstock. Add to that black hardware and black pickguard with silver Thunderbird logo and you've got the NEW Epiphone Thunderbird PRO's. Available in 3 striking colors - Vintage Sunburst, Translucent Black and Natural Oil.
