Gibson Thunderbird Bass Guitar - Sparkling Burgundy with Non-reverse Headstock

Ever since it was first released back in 1965, the Non-Reverse Thunderbird has been THE choice for forward-looking bassists who want to make their own path and steadfastly refuse to follow the crowd. The Non-Reverse Thunderbird's distinctive styling and huge, thunderous tone make it a standout on stage and in the studio. Now you have the opportunity to make one of these relatively rare 'birds your own with the release of the new Gibson USA Non-Reverse Thunderbird. Equipped with a Non-Reverse mahogany body and mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard and 20 medium jumbo frets, each of the two Thunderbird pickups has a volume control, allowing you to use them separately, or to blend them in any amount you prefer. A master tone control rounds out the simple yet highly effective control layout. The three-ply white pickguard features the iconic Thunderbird graphic. The Non-Reverse Thunderbird is equipped with a Graph Tech® nut. A 3-point adjustable bridge provides a full range of adjustment for action and intonation, while Hipshot® Ultralite® tuning machines hold down the strings at the other end and deliver accurate and stable tuning while keeping headstock weight low to improve balance. Available in Inverness Green, Faded Pelham Blue, and Sparkling Burgundy, a hardshell case is included.


  • Mahogany provides a warm, full-bodied tone that is made for the road
  • In all playing positions, an Indian rosewood fingerboard that is as smooth as glass feels fantastic
  • Using two Thunderbird humbuckers, you can get a powerful, meaty low-end tone
  • You can perfectly blend and shape the humbuckers with the individual volume knobs and the master tone control
  • Nitrocellulose lacquer finish has a gorgeous appearance and improves tone
  • Three-point adjustable bridge provides stability and sustain
