ive been playing it alot at my local guitar store and i love the whole aspect of plug in and play and no volume or tone knobs, ive always liked bass and guitars like that.
but im also not sure what to get, the blackbird, or a normal thunderbird?


thoughts?

with all due respect, if you knew all about bass,
you wouldn't be asking this question. if you want to play in a Motley Crue tribute band, i say either will do. if you want to play bass for any other genre, neither will do. the "Birds" look cool, but there are WAY better basses for the money.
Welcome to UG Bass. use the search bar for thunderbird bass,
you'll see our opinions. real friends don't let friends buy T-Birds.

Man, I dont mean to bash the "bird" but I almost fell off my chair when I saw that they go for $2000 brand new!!!! Highway robbery at its finest. Shame on you Gibson.

I have played one and I really wouldn't buy one. They're really just a moneymaking gimmick for Gibson/Epiphone.
