Ive been thinking about this for a couple of days now and decided to switch over from guitar to bass in my band.
Heres the bass I'm getting - "

What are your view on the Thunderbird?
Also Im looking to customize it in someway, because that just looks boring.
What do you suggest I do.

The good times are killing me.

searchbar for the "only" thunderbird thread somewhere on this forum for the definitive anthology of the UG bass forum's thoughts about thunderbirds. but basically, pros = looks (depends on the person) and possibly tone (depends even more on the person); cons = neck dive, bad upper fret access, unstable bridge, looks (although that is a nice color of red), and tone (again, depends)
Yay fibonacci!

I'm not going to rant in another Thunderbird thread.
Just don't do it. Searchbar for reasons why.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
Dude I wouldn't change a thing. I'm liking that shiny red, it has a cool kinda classic look.
Me personally, I've never been a huge fan of the Thunderbird. I've had my eye on an Epiphone EB-3.
people are gunna say ewwwwwww a thunderbird but they relly arent that bad. dont listen to them

It's all about the abalone. You can't play metal without it. Mother of pearl? MOTO? GTFO!
i like em...watch out for neck dives but the tone is solid...it's a great deal for $300.

Bass tones are hard to find.
