A Distinctive, Great-playing Bass from Epiphone

The Epiphone Thunderbird Pro bass provides you with tone that lives up to its name! It's distinctive alder body and fast, 34"-scale 7-piece neck give the Thunderbird Pro a great combination of striking looks and unbeatable playability. Two well-placed pickups with active electronics put out plenty of volume, with tone that ranges from thick to punchy. Though it features a substantial body shape, this bass is lightweight and very comfortable for holding down the bottom end onstage. You'll get a ton of tone when you pick up the thunderous Thunderbird Pro!

Epiphone Thunderbird Pro 4-string Electric Bass at a Glance:
  • A history of distinctive quality
  • Great tone

A history of distinctive quality
Building upon the long-term success of the Thunderbird bass, Epiphone introduces the professional series Thunderbird Pro. Available in both 4 and 5 string versions, this is THE original "rock and roll" bass, with the distinctive shape and traditional design elements and new technology — all for a price that the working bassist can afford. The Thunderbird Pro's feature a rock-solid, 7-piece (Walnut/Maple/Walnut/Maple/Walnut/Maple/Walnut) neck with through-body construction for amazing sustain and tone.

Great tone
The pickup configuration on the Epiphone Thunderbird Pro electric bass is unique. Rather than placing a pickup near the neck, which could muddy up the tone and reduce its effectiveness, Epiphone gives the bass essentially middle and bridge pickups. This lets you dial in everything from growling tones to funky punch. Add to that, these pickups are Epiphone's T-Pro bass humbucking pickups paired with custom active electronics and EQ, making this a very versatile bass capable of a wide variety of tonal options. Other features include premium die-cast 14:1 bass machine heads, a flush-mount fully-adjustable bridge, black hardware, and Slim-Taper neck profile with an Epi-designed straight-string pull headstock.
