General What is your overall opinion of this product? So, first, I ordered the $299 non pro version. I owned a goth in the past, it was a fully capable and well made guitar. So, when I decided to get back into gigging as a bassist, I of course bought another epi, but the more traditional looking one. Always I use AMS. Next day delivery, ease of interaction...bass comes, along w a new Hartke Hydrive 150 amp, also going back....bass neck pickup not functioning. Other than that, it's perfect. ;( and the amp is rippled all across the tolex, looks beat to death. I managed to find a nearly new SWR combo on eBay, so I decided to take the savings and get the pro IV active. It comes, next day, beautiful looking axe. Sure, the final product has a few rough spots, but it's $500, and just looks great. Plug it in, nothing. Check battery, fine, amp and cable, fine. Tap the front of bass, snap crackle and pop, then sound. Which continues to cut out until the bass is punched in the back. Seriously. This is ridiculous.

What is your overall opinion of this product? This is one of the best neck-through basses I have ever played. The walnut/maple combination results in excellent resonance. Combined with the excellent tailstop, it provides amazing sustain. The combination of Humbuckers with the active preamp gives an amazing array of tones with just four knobs. This is without a doubt the best 4 string bass for the money out there!

Catalog, Supervisr and Reps are liars. Print bass copy and switch price and lie. Non Trustworthy

What is your overall opinion of this product? No respect for customer, they do not stand or care about customer. Supervisor no help, lying is the only thing they do best. Proof of item, price, copy, item numbers. Should of honored the printing. Did not care.

Your general opinion of this product. I have played and owned basses that cost twice as much as this bass, and the Epiphone Thunderbird Pro would embarrass them all. The few things I would change are: 1.) The location of the front strap post. The post sits on the backside of the bass, and thus the bass tilts slightly forward when you’re standing. Not an issue when you are comfortable with what you’re playing, but if you are not familiar with the piece and you need to glance down at the fret board to get your bearings the bass is at just enough of a down angle that you can’t see where you’re at on the lower frets. 2.) You’re pretty much stuck with the pups…I haven’t been able find aftermarket pickups for this instrument. They are certainly good enough for playing live, I would just want a fuller tone for recording. 3.) The stock strings are junk. But that’s it. I give this instrument a 5 star rating because you will not find a better bass in this price range.
