What is your overall opinion of this product?
As a newbie whom never owned a guitar until 58 years old. I purchased a so called starter bass. And almost lost interest because there was no thump or energy in the bass or small amp. Then I met this Thunderbird IV. Together with an Ampeg BA150HP. There is a new fire in the old man. It is like the old hormones kicking in again.
