Could someone please explain to me what the difference is between a gibson thunderbird and an Epiphone thunderbird is.


It seems to me that the only difference is that a gisbon costs like 3 times as much

why?


thanks in advance

Set neck vs. neck thru.

And the wood in the neck and body on some models.

Quality control is much better on the gibsons (not lately i've heard though) and you know your getting quality wood as eposed to getting whatever Epiphone can find at the time. I think the finish is different too. Like the Epiphone is a Poly finish and Gibson a Nitro.

Gibson is better, my friend's Ephiphone was f*cked up after about a month.

Most of it has been mentioned, it should also be noted that the Gibsons are all mahogany, whereas Epi Thunderbirds have an Alder body.

The pickups, etc. are obviously better on the Gibson as well.
