Goth Thunderbird-IV
(Bass Guitars - Electric)

The Goth Thunderbird Bass puts a new twist on an old favorite and with a Pitch Black finish, becomes the black diamond of the Goth collecton. The Thunderbird first issued from the legendary Kalamazoo factory in 1963 was for a time the only bass available from Gibson or Epiphone. But really, what else could you need? The Thunderbird's unique "reversed" zig-zag body design and equally distinct headstock was the brainchild of legendary automotive designer and visionary Ray Dietrich, who was enlisted by the Kalamazoo factory to bolster the guitar lines of the early '60s and help solidify the factory's eminent rank among solidbody electric guitar manufacturers. The Thunderbird bass was quickly embraced by rock and rollers in the States and in England and Europe, and today is still the ultimate rock and roll low end machine. Building upon the long-term success of the classic Thunderbird, Epiphone introduces the Goth Thunderbird IV for serious rockers only.

Vintage Sound and Design

The Goth Thunderbird-IV features mahogany body wings and a solid, bolt-on Hard maple neck for amazing sustain and tone. The Thunderbird’s SlimTaper™ profile neck has a 34" scale length and a rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius and 20 medium jumbo nickel/silver alloy frets. The nut width is 1.73" for great string spacing and the body is finished in Pitch Black (PB).

Power of the Thunderbird

The Goth Thunderbird-IV features Epiphone's new Thunderbird humbucker pickups, which have proven to be one of the most versatile pickups for bassists on stage and in the studio.
