Expert Review

The Gibson Thunderbird IV bass guitar makes big sounds, but what else would you expect from an all-mahogany body and mahogany/walnut laminate neck? Make no mistake, this bass guitar was made to rumble. But with a narrow 1.6 inch nut, you won’t need huge hands to harness such a huge tone. You can easily tune this axe using the Grover tuners and 3-point adjustable tailpiece which look impressive, and will ensure your bass guitar will stay in tune.

The Thunderbird IV’s dual ceramic magnet humbucker pickups (TB Plus) offer a punch and clarity that complements the overall style of this bass guitar; you’re getting a low-end wall of sound that also manages to remain tight. Finally, the Thunderbird drawn logo on the all-white pick guard and Gibson 120th anniversary inlay at the 12th fret of this axe gives this bass guitar a sense of class in recognizing its heritage and history. Don’t get too carried away with a monocle and champagne glass as this pick is liable to smash those delicates apart with one mighty bass note!Rating: 4/5
