Since its initial release in 1965, the Non-Reverse Thunderbird has consistently been the preferred choice for innovative bassists who carve their own path and adamantly reject conformity. With its unique design and powerful, booming sound, the Non-Reverse Thunderbird stands out both on stage and in the recording studio. Now, you have the chance to claim one of these relatively uncommon instruments as your own, thanks to the introduction of the new Gibson USA Non-Reverse Thunderbird. This model features a Non-Reverse mahogany body and a mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, boasting 20 medium jumbo frets. Each of the two Thunderbird pickups has an individual volume control, allowing for separate usage or seamless blending to achieve your preferred sound. The control layout is simple yet highly effective, complemented by a master tone control. The three-ply white pickguard showcases the iconic Thunderbird graphic. The Non-Reverse Thunderbird is equipped with a Graph Tech® nut, while a 3-point adjustable bridge enables comprehensive action and intonation adjustment. At the other end, the Hipshot® Ultralite® tuning machines secure the strings, providing precise and stable tuning while minimizing headstock weight to enhance balance.
