Offering a deliciously dark twist on a classic, acclaimed bass, the Epiphone Goth Thunderbird IV Bass Guitar adds some new and exciting features that not only make this bass even more thunderous than standard, but also make it look absolutely stunning. Strictly for rockers only, the Goth Thunderbird IV bass is a dark diamond in the rough.
Built on a classic
The unique reverse zig-zag shape of the Thunderbird originated in 1963 and was first built in the legendary Kalamazoo factory. The Goth Thunderbird IV bass retains this classic quality and shape along with the mahogany body material and is finished in a new 'pitch-black' colour.
The hard maple neck is bolted on to the body of the Goth Thunderbird IV bass which along with the body helps to deliver a precision sustain and focused tone that will cut through the darkest metal. The 34" scale neck also features a rosewood fingerboard complete with 20 nickel and silver medium-jumbo frets. The neck is also shaped to a comfortable SlimTaper profile, ideal for those longer rock sessions. Finally, a unique XII inlay resides at the 12th fret finishing the dark look off nicely.
Wake the dead
The Epiphone Goth Thunderbird IV Bass Guitar features powerful TB Plus bass humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. These pickups have proven themselves to be incredibly versatile for many styles under the figurative rock umbrella. The inclusion of independent volume controls as well as a master tone control ensure that you can shape your tone to your exact liking with ease.
You need hardware that can withstand night after night of demanding performance and the Epiphone Goth Thunderbird IV Bass delivers without compromise. Premium die-cast 17:1 bass machine heads, a 3-point full adjustable bridge and 500K O potentiometers all work in perfect harmony to provide the best sound and look good while they're doing it too!
For the bassist with a passion for rock, the Epiphone Goth Thunderbird IV Bass Guitar is an instrument that will not let you down. With good looks and huge power, this bass is not for the faint-hearted.
