Up for sale or trade is my Gibson Thunderbird 2008, purchased from Bass Direct towards the end of last year (original add http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Gibson_Thunderbird_2008.html). Love the look, it doesn't neck dive, it isn't too heavy, the pickups are very powerful and it can deliver a decent range of tones. However it doesn't suit my playing style so if it stays with me it looks like becoming wall candy, (very pretty wall candy!) there are other basses I want to try so better to move this on.
The bass has a very obvious area of wear on the top horn, the body also has numerous marks and small dents, head stock also has a couple of small dings but the neck and fret board are spotless, I can't find a mark on them. I have tried to take pictures to highlight things. Fitted a set of DR fatbeams 45 to 105 and added dunlop straplocks apart from that it is as I received. Weight on the bathroom scales comes in at 4.3Kg , Mark confirmed when I was buying it was one the lighter examples he has seen. Comes with fitted hard case.
Trade options - 4 string and preferably under 4Kg with cash either way if necessary.
Happiest with face to face deals, location is PE8. Will travel for the right deal but more than 2 hours driving and I tend to get grumpy.
