For thundering lows with contemporary punch and presence in a timelessly stylish package, the new Thunderbird Non-Reverse Bass from Gibson USA can't be beat. When Gibson changed up the original "Reverse-Bodied" Firebird guitar and Thunderbird bass lines in 1965 to the new "Non-Reverse" design—so called for its more traditional, though still groundbreaking, asymmetrical offset body lines—it created a whole new cult of devotees. The Thunderbird Non-Reverse Bass applies the same radical design sense to the low end, adding cutting-edge hardware and a pair of the four-string world's best sounding pickups for a package that takes you from rock, to pop, to jazz, to blues, to fusion with equal fluency. The Thunderbird Non-Reverse Bass is a full-sized bass with a scale length of 34" and the supreme playability you have come to expect from Gibson USA, so lows are as mammoth as you could ever want. This bass is primed for the demands of modern music, and it looks stunning in your choice of Vintage Sunburst or Pelham Blue finish, both in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, enhanced by black-plated hardware and solid-black pickup covers.
