To be fair its about 4 days old but i just got around to this. I walked into guitar center recently paid and saw this from the door, ran over and impulse buyed it.Apparently it had been shipped in that morning so noone else had played it but me and whoever did before putting it out lol. Limited Edition Epiphone Thunderbird in silverburst with all silver hardware. Ive never bought an instrument at GC itself and may never again but i knew these were limited and id never seen or heard of anyone with one so i snatched it up.

I like how it's propped up next to all those Motley Crue posters

Looks great, how's the weight on the headstock?

about the same as on the pros so not a huge improvement. Im used to the weight at this point but its a little lighter.

This bass confuses my boner.
I hate thunderbirds, but I'm a sucker for a good silverburst.
hmm...

the look is ok (read: meh)... it's the tone and feel I don't like. And design issues.

They do look good in the flesh...wood...whatever..its just the (lack of) playability and (muddy, shapeless) tone i dont get on with,Ive never heard a good Tbird sound without a killer rig behind it
I played a gig once,and let the other bands borrow my Trace Elliot amp, not a bad piece of kit, the guy with a Tbird came and bitched at me because my amp didnt have built in reverb so he couldn't get it to sound good....he also attempted a slap solo on it
My heart would of gone out to him...if he hadn't been a douche

Take off the pickguard!!!!! Its ruining the silverburst.
...it was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat
#16
As with most other people in here, I'm not really a big fan of Thunderbirds, for the usual reasons. However, this one looks pretty damn sweet. The silverburst is a cool finish. Gotta say though, I still think they look better in the classic sunburst.
#18
They always look nice. But I could never be bothered to put the work in to make them playable.

Well, when I get a custom-made bass, (or, when I have the money) I'll know what finish to have. Almost spelt that finnish. haha.

Probably, it's the best looking finish, classic sunburst idea with a modern darker looking twist. It's beastly.

Well if you could take that bass and rework it to get Justin Meldal-Johnsen's tone from his Tbird on NIN "The Slip", I would seriously consider buying a T bird.

Actually, from a recent GC visit, Epis releasing a bunch of instruments with the silverburst. I liked it on the LP guitar I saw as well.
