Golden T-Bird Bass Tone and Style!

A mahogany body with an ultra-stable 3-piece mahogany neck that ends at the back strap button gives you the deep, grooving bass tones that rumble on for eons. Special T-Bird Plus ceramic-magnet pickups seriously beef up your tone too, without letting your bottom end swamp out the rest of the band. With its killer blend of tonewoods, ceramic and rock-solid hardware, you'll find yourself pushing your style to the limits when you play a Gibson 50th Anniversary Thunderbird electric bass.

Comfortable neck plus the solid low-end thump of a mahogany body

To equip the 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass with the instantly recognizable thump you'd expect from a versatile bass, Gibson went with the tried-and-true combination of a mahogany body and a 3-piece mahogany neck-through design topped with a rosewood fingerboard. This gives you an amazing balance of chest-pounding resonance, the fast response you need to pull off percussive bass lines, and epic sustain. And thanks to its narrow 1.6" nut, you don't have to have massive hands to rock out with a 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass.

Bass humbuckers deliver earth-shaking bass tone

For absolutely massive bass tone, the Gibson 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass comes with a pair of T-Bird Plus humbuckers. Gibson designed these pickups with ceramic magnets to give you punch and clarity. The rest of the band will love your bass's driving punch and tight bottom end, which lets you drive home the rhythm without drowning out the stage. You'll keep the band rocking all night with the Gibson 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass.

Top-notch hardware that's ready to work

Beyond its snazzy, limited-edition looks and gold hardware, you'll find professional appointments on the Gibson 50th Anniversary Thunderbird that make it a true workhorse bass. For instance, its Grover tuners and 3-point adjustable tailpiece give you amazing tuning stability. What's more, this Thunderbird Bass features a PLEK-cut nut, ensuring perfect intonation and the kind of setup flexibility any seasoned bass player can appreciate.
