Gibson 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass Bullion Gold

Item: GBBAT50BGGH1304

Launched in 1963, the Thunderbird has long been a favorite of bass players looking for something a little bit different thanks to its outlandish shape and through-neck build. The likes of Nikki Sixx, Duff McKagan and Krist Novoselic have all favoured the bassy beast over the years, and in recognition of its mighty low-end prowess, Gibson's 50th Anniversary model is finished in Bullion Gold.

Thunderbird style, "through-neck" construction, a pair of mighty T-Bird Bass pickups and a rock-solid Thunderbird three-point bridge make the 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass the most playable and best-sounding bass on the scene. This commemorative bass wears a gorgeous Bullion Gold finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, and a pick guard that's hot-stamped with a gold T-Bird logo and "50th Anniversary 1963-2013." Add it up, and it's both a fitting tribute to a special anniversary, and a thunderous way to lay down the rumble in any style of music.

The neck is carved to a comfortably rounded profile that measures 0.790" at the 1st fret and 0.930" at the 12th. It is topped with a 20-fret fingerboard made from Grade-A rosewood, inlaid with pearlod dot position markers.

The firm sonic foundation of the 50th Anniversary Thunderbird Bass is cranked through a pair of extremely versatile contemporary T-Bird Bass pickups, with ceramic magnets for enhanced punch and clarity. Individual volume controls and a master tone control let you blend pickups as desired for a wide range of sounds.
