Big, bold, bass from a stunning classic.
The Gibson Thunderbird IV Electric Bass Guitar debuted in 1963 with the original Firebird guitar series.
The most highly respected of all Gibson basses, it was reissued in 1987 with original reverse body styling
and TB Plus ceramic magnet humbuckers. Its thunderous output is enhanced by a 9-ply mahogany-and-walnut
neck that extends through the body. Mahogany wings, an ebony fretboard, and black chrome hardware
provide stunning dark looks. 34" scale, black top-hat knobs with inserts, Schaller tuners, and 3-way
adjustable tailpiece. Includes Gibson hardshell case. Order today for that big Gibson sound from an
axe that's earned its stripes.
