My son bought an Epiphone Thunderbird Bass earlier this year. He started learning and I was pretty excited he was picking after his old man. After a solid set up, by yours truly, and a slight mod to be able to use Dunlop Strap Locks, he took a few classes and them drop. Yesterday he told me he was quitting for good and ask me if he could sell. I was really pissed off, after all I help him buy it and I have high hopes of him learning. I dreamed of jamming with my boy. So I ask him how much he want for it and what he want it for? He reply, "I don't know; is $100 bucks ok? I want to buy video games." I reply to him "F#@Ker, here is you $100". Oh well! he will inherit it back again o0ne day with all other guitars, basses, amps and gear I have. Is the cheapest version of it but play well and sound big and full. I had set it up to a low action and the intonation is dead on. It feels really good like a much expensive bass. This a preatty cool bass, I love the darker burst. I am digging it. Neck diver by nature; no problem, at that locations it is dead stable. Not bad at all!
