    Product Description

    An accurate reproduction of a classic but with new ProBucker 760 bass humbuckers! First introduced in 1963, the Thunderbird Vintage Pro Bass has powered dozens of hits by artists like The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Cheap Trick. When you want an iconic bass with great low end, rich tone and sustain, grab the Thunderbird Vintage Pro. Additional features are a vintage styled 60s Tune-o-matic bridge and Claw tailpiece.

    Classic Thunderbird Style
    Legendary automotive designer Ray Dietrich designed the original Thunderbird Bass in the early 60s. The Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage PRO uses the same profile of the original factory models with a 7-ply mahogany and walnut neck attached to mahogany body wings with a through-neck joint. The neck has a 1960s style rounded profile and has a 34” scale, a 12” radius, and 20 medium jumbo frets. The rosewood fingerboard has pearloid dot inlays just like the original, and the familiar Thunderbird headstock has a black truss rod cover with the 60s era Epiphone logo silkscreened in gold. The 3-Layer white and black pickguard has the original "Thunderbird" logo in black.  

    ProBucker Bass Pickups
    The Thunderbird Vintage PRO Bass is powered by Epiphone’s critically acclaimed new ProBucker #760 Bass Pickups which are made with the same attention to detail as the ProBucker and P-90 PRO guitar pickups. ProBucker 760s are inspired by the original Thunderbird pickups from the 60s and feature 18% Nickel Silver Covers, German manufactured Elektrisola Magnet wire, Alnico IV sand cast magnets, and braided coaxial lead wire and are vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonics. Controls include gold “Top Hat” knobs with chrome metal inserts for individual Neck and Bridge volume settings along with a Master Tone control.

    Rock Solid Hardware
    The Thunderbird Vintage PRO Bass comes with a nickel-plated 1960s styled Tune-o-matic bridge and Claw tailpiece inspired by the original Thunderbird bridge along with open-gear bass tuners with historic "Clover" buttons and a pro 17:1 tuning ratio. A hard case is also available.

    Lifetime Guarantee
    Each Thunderbird Vintage PRO Bass includes Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Guarantee and world famous Gibson 365/24/7 worldwide customer service.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Alpine White Flawless finish, action & setup great out of the box but I changed the strings to flat wound chromes. A good strap is a must as this is no lightweight. Sounds great.
