I bought an epiphone thunderbird yesterday (02/04/01). I tried a fender precision 2nd hand 390 UK that would have been 650ish new, with active pickups and lightweight body. It was a lovely guitar but I couldn't get the "chunky" sound I was looking for no matter how I set the active pickups - there are some v.nice tones there if you like to play funky. Then I tried the thunderbird which was 299 UK. I fell in love with it as soon as I plucked a couple of strings. I deffinately prefer the two big passive pickups. Chunky rockin' blanga heaven friends!

(pssst..shh..it looks fukin awesome as well!) aahh swoon.


: : Im considering purchasing a new bass but I dont know too much about Epiphone basses. I really like the Thunderbird bass made by Epiphone but I have never played one and dont know any one who does. I was looking for any opinions, comments about, or problems with the bass. Thanks for your help -Brent-

: Epiphone is turning out some NICE Basses. The best are EB3, Rivoli II and
: Les Paul standard. They have 2 PUs, and set necks. Some of the bolt ons are
: also quite good. I've got the older Epi Les Paul and it plays and sounds as good as
: a Gibson LP Bass. The EB1, Thunderbird etc are also pretty good.
