User Review

Of Gibson, uncompromising - Reviews Gibson Thunderbird IV

9-ply neck-
2 micro
Passive Eq, 2 volumes
Medium-heavy weight
simple finish, but perfect

Made in USA

UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant
ergo perfect, except for jazz guitar rockeux ill of: we will not in the treble! (At the same time is low)
And it takes long arms, the neck is particularly long
and a large car to transport, it is about twenty inches above the average!
the sound is large, motion, and precise, very, not in every hand, especially imprecise ...
the myth of the pick is totally wrong on this bass (on Epiphone, yes, but not here): the game is perfect for fingers (but it also kills the plectrum)
for the slap, it's more rock n 'roll, but doable if motivated ...

SOUNDS

With his funny face, a sound typed, his choice must be weighed (and beefy amp, personal, I inject on the Orange: TB500 and 2 boxes of 15 OBC115!)

OVERALL OPINION

The bass of my dreams, by chance (almost), after some beauties wear (Ibanez Roadster Series 1, us jazz bass, precision ultra more ...)
I do it again this choice, of course
