I have played some of the best basses out there; Rickenbacker, Fender Jazz (American), Warwick $$ Corvette, B.C. Rich and Musicman. This bass easily compares to them in tone/quality while having a sound totally its own. I was at first embarassed to be seen playing such a cheap instrument - especially with the EE-Epiphone-e logo on it being so visible, but I got over it soon after owning it. I really like the way it plays, sounds and looks. For the price, you will not get a better neck-thru, active bass.

.When I was a kid in the 60's, I saw the Rolling Stones in sacramento CA - Brian Jones was playing a Thunderbird Guitar. I thought it was cool. Who would have known that 100 years later, I'd still be drawn to the shape of a Thunderbird.I didn't really NEED a new bass, but I had some Christmas Cash and a coupon to Custom Guitar's Friend and now I own one. I really, really like it. I don't make a living with this bass - in fact - I play it about an hour every Sunday at church. Maybe I'm not the best critic of this instrument musically because I've only been playing a year, but believe me, something has been soothed in my music soul by acquiring this bass.Oh yeah, "Incredible sustain, awesome tone control, massive sound output" and all that other drivel that EVERY bass claims in it's advertising.In fact it DOES have some very nice sustain and the active controls can produce a lot of nice tones. How 'bout the "hum" that you've read about on all the Bass boards? Well, it does hum a little but when you jack the treble up, so I don't jack the treble up. I have to admit that I was a little freaked out when I first plugged it in - it DID hum. I called Custom Guitars Friend and demanded a new one - they very graciously gave me an RMA number and sent me a UPS prepaid shipping label to ship it back to them. (Thanks for the comforting good service, Custom Guitar's Friend)I got to thinking - I'm just gonna get another humming bass -- so I slept on it and decided that I liked what I had and kept it. I'm glad I did. (I just would have gotten another bass that performed the same,,,maybe not as pretty)How about the "neck dive"? EE-Epiphone-e has moved the strap connect point so it doesn't dive - a good non-slippery guitar strap will help too.Did I mention how BIG this thing is? Physically large - and IMPOSING. This is NOT the typical Fender shape of most other guitars...It says "LOOK AT ME"! The color and finish (I got a Vintage Starburst) is very nice. Nice Dark Cherry brown color, VERY nice clear finish with no flaws. I bought the dedicated case too - good idea. It fits perfectly and looks to be good quality construction.If you want to be SEEN as well as heard, get this bass. Or maybe don't get this bass and I'll be one of the FEW with a truly BIG, BAD, BEAUTIFUL Bass Guitar.

.If it would not have been for the hiccup of a substandard bass received in the first attempt my overall experience would have been better, thankfully I purchased at Custom Guitars Friend, where you can depend on good customer service should something go wrong.
I ordered the T-Bird Pro Bass in natural finish for its appeal, and I have to say I am generally pleased with my purchase, even though it took two attempts to get me a bass that would be (almost) flawless. The first one I got had a wavy finish on the headstock logo plate, had rough, unfinished spots on the wood of the body, and a loose screw on the neck guitar strap hook that snapped the moment I sensibly tightened it. While I could have possibly lived with all those minor flaws on that T-Bird I received first it also had a severe ground hum, and I was not about to open up the bass to fix what they missed to attend during production and quality control. That first T-Bird bass that was sent to me was in worse condition than my "2nd" marked T-Bird IV that I already own. So back it went for an exchange. Bass #2 arrived, and was better in all regards, except for one small visible nick in the wood that I will live with. Bass came detuned, action set slightly high for my taste, after adjustments to my liking I am very pleased with my purchase, but do know now that while the natural finish is off stunning appearance the wood is open and raw, not sealed with any type of flat or satin clear finish, so there will be marks visible over time, if you do not take care of this bass and keep it in a case. Is it worse in quality than a GIBSON? Well, I did not order a GIBSON T-Bird, as I don't have the dough available to me to afford one, but frankly, after reading reviews on Gibson's T-Birds I felt confident I would get the better deal with an Epihone unit. That it took 2 attempts to get me a bass that was right shows me though that there is fluctuation in quality with EE-Epiphone-es too.
General quality of the basses I received is good, but not excellent. The fully checked off check tag from quality control on the guitar showed everything was peachy even for the first flaw studded T-Bird I received. Makes you wonder what they check and how ...
What can you expect in the sub price category of bass guitars, I think the T-Bird Pro by EE-Epiphone-e represents an apropriate and very playable value for the money paid.

.i was impressed with sound coming right out of the box, and played with my friend who custom made his, with a nikki sixx neck and batalini pick ups and overall it the thunderbird pro IV keeps up with the best! this is my Go -To bass, not disapointed at all
The 3 Band EQ was a big thing for me, whether i was running it through a small practice amp, to the peavey mark IV head/cab i gig with. the neck is really smooth to work with, seemed alot easier to do runs with and the neck-thru build really gave it that extra punch was looking for. i like they put the knob for the strap on the back of the neck so there are no Neck-Dives
The quality was great! in lamenence terms "it came perfect". i didn't have to to do anything, had a great sound right away, i didnt need to set-it up or anything. I don't know what people were saying about the "weight issue", i own a pevery somthing, and Ltd ... and a 1970's dan electro and still the thunderbird is one f the lightest basses i've ever played on.
i ordered it when they had the "spring cleaning sale", so i got the bass and the molded hardshell case for a great price! and still im pleased!
Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass Natural Oil
.This is a very nice instrument. Since I haven't used the a Gibson Thunderbird, I can't compare, but I think that its really nice and worth the money.
I like the little notches in the bass, treble, and tone knobs, so you can tell when you are boosting and cutting tone, and so you can tell what pickup(s) you are using. With the bass and treble boost and cut, you can dial a wide range of tones ranging from a low growl, to a bright snap.
Overall it is nice, but on the E and A strings, when I play them, the strings are hitting something and I can hear a rattling noise coming from the guitar, even over my amp. I can't figure out what it is, but this could just be a problem with mine though, I don't know.
A little expensive for an EE-Epiphone-e, but the quality pretty much makes up for the price.

.Great looking bass that always draws compliments, with the natural oil finish. PLays great...bass tone really penetrates wherever you may play. Has features found on bassess costing hundreds, if not a thousand more.
Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass Natural Oil
.I love this bass! Smooth neck, fast action, hot pickups that can be dialed down or cranked up! I've never had an issue cutting through the mix. I can dial in different tones for different moods. It's light enough to wear all night with no fatigue. With a suede backed strap she stays in place hands free. So what's with the four stars? Ground buzz. Hand on the strings = no buzz. Open strings, even while playing = buzz. I'm playing through a Peavey Max with an active input, the ground lift switch on the mixer channel has made no difference. Gotta be internal. I'll find it, but I wish I didn't have to. (And it can't be all that bad, I haven't fixed it yet have I?) Still glad I bought it. Still love it.

.Received this bass last week, ordered the Vintage Sunset, and it is beautiful. Love the neck thru construction. When the blend knob is set toward the neck position, I get a lot of noise through the in-ear monitor we use at church, but it does not seem to come through the house. I look forward to learning what this bass can do. My hope is that one day my playing will make it sound as good as it looks.
My previous experience is learning to play on an older entry level long scale Peavy and then moving to a short scale bass that I bought for my daugther. I prefer flatwound strings on my bass for the smooth feel and no string noise. I just like the sound. While I have played for about 7 years, I don't practice so my skills are pretty elementary.
Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass Natural Oil
.First of all, please ignore my previous review. I was young and unlearned. This: bass: is: out: of: this: world. The playability is amazing, and the tone is staggering! I hook this up to an Ampeg SVT 210 AV and it sounds incredible! And for such a humble price, this thing can outplay Stingrays and Sterlings alike
Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-IV Bass Natural Oil
.This is a great Bass. I've had it for 3 months now and I am very happy with my purchase. The sound is fat, it feels really comfortable in the neck, it adjust to any style of music I'm playing and it looks great. I was made for this bass. Buy it, you won't regret it.
