Firstly this is a reluctant sale as it is my only 6 string that I bought in place of another which I sold years ago. Needs must though, space, time and the rest of my instruments say I don't have time for this beast and that I am is desperate need of cash, something must give.
I am really struggling to find a specification list for this, which is a shame. What I can tell you is that it is NOT a pre-Gibson Tobias and has had a refit with a set of EMG pickups.
I believe it is purple heart and mahogany wood.
The bass plays and sounds great, it has a closer string spacing then most basses, nothing hugely noticeable though and if anything it helps.
It has some cosmetic damage which is fairly minimal though as I struggled to photograph it. Most of it is on the backside of the body.
It does, have a scratchy volume knob, however, it does work fine on full volume, all the other pots are fine and they are pick up blend, bass boost/cut, treble boost/cut.
It has a matching soft case.
Any questions then please just ask.
£700 + Shipping.
Have packed and sent plenty of basses before, no stress on that side.
Thank you for viewing
I bought this recently from GG, second hand in a moment of madness! I have owned T birds in the past and don`t really get on with them due to the shape. So time to try and cut my loses and move it on. Below is the details from an ad I have posted elsewhere.
Epiphone Thunderbird classic iv Pro bass guitar. Not to be confused with the cheaper bolt on Epi Tbird. This is very much like it`s Gibson brother without the eye watering price tag.
Featuring a 7 ply mahogany and walnut neck through design with mahogany wings. Fitted with US Gibson T bird humbucking pickups as fitted to the US model. This one is nice and light.
It`s in really good condition just a couple of small marks on the very end of the headstock, a small chip on the back about a quarter of an inch long and the previous owner must have had a pickup cover fitted over the bridge pickup, possibly to rest his hand on and that is the reason for the black screw on the body above the pickup.
It has a fake Gibson truss rod cover fitted, the Epiphone one will be included. It also has a new Thomann quality gig bag that is made for this model.
So there it is. It`s originally a £400 bass, US pickups with a brand new gig bag for £250. I`m not into posting this as the last time I posted a bass it was too much stress so please don`t ask. I am in Paisley but I don`t mind travelling a bit for a meet up. Any questions just ask. Ta.
Here we have the beautiful Eich T500 with its matching Eich 112XS cabinet, both made in Germany.
This set-up has been amazing in studio and at gigs, especially using its tilt function to help monitoring.
Both Amp and Cabinet are in great condition and have fitted covers that I never leave the house without.
Will sell individually!
Eich T500 = £475
Eich 112XS = £375
Together = £800

VERY reluctant sale, but I have finally managed to get a CS Dusty Hill Gold Top Relic, so something has to go.
Kev has very kindly allowed me to link to his original thread,which includes shop floor walk, specs & much better photos than I will ever take.
CASH PRICE, please, no offers.
TRADES, value is higher, need £1000 cash, but happy to talk about a maple boarded Sandberg, especially if it's one of the aged/roadworn. Any Rosewood board trades would need to have MOP blocks.
COURIER. SATURDAY COLLECTION ONLY, Buyer to organise & pay for. Please remember this is a big saving of it's late 2017 price new (£2999) and a significant saving on what I paid for it a few weeks back. So, MY good luck at getting a Dusty becomes the buyers good luck getting this super bass at a GREAT price.
I can also offer a meet somewhere within 100 miles radius of Wigan.
If my Sandberg goes 1st, this will be removed VERY quickly.
Thanks for looking,
