5, 4, 3, 2, 1....Thunderbirds are go!
Epiphone have done a fantastic job recreating a classic bass from years gone by. Subtle features really help this bass stand apart from the original Epiphone Thunderbird such as the adjustable bridge, claw tailpiece (no 3-point bridge here) and a strap button secured to the back on the bass rather than the side helping eliminate neck dive, just like the original!
Here's the specs what Epiphone have to say:
1960s Classic Now With New ProBucker™ Bass Humbuckers
