Gibson Thunderbird Bass Sunburst 1976

 Gibson Thunderbird bass from 1976. Its introduced as the Gibson Bicentennial Thunderbird IV, finished in Tobacco Burst..  

This Bass is a reproduction of the 1963 T'Bird IV with 2 pick-ups and was launched to celebrate the 200th birthday of the United States of America. Gibson left an iconic American bird coloured in the red white and blue stars and stripes with ’76 isigne, as a birthday mark. Only 228 of these were made in 1976. The model is based on the 1963 T’Bird IV, which gives it a 9 part mahogany/walnut/mahogany neck. The bridge differed from the 1963 model, they introduced the 1976 model with a three point bridge, which is more solid. The solid bridge matches with the full mahogany body and the neck thru construction. The pickups, potmeters and all the hardware parts are original, except for the pickup and bridge cover, they seem more recent. The 9 piece neck features a rosewood fretboard with pearloid dot inlay.

This bass guitar is in excellent –Very good condition. Exceptional for its age. The body only has some dents here and there. The straplock has been replaced twice, but that has been repaired properly. The headstock has been broken in two, but this has been repaired by a professional. This 1976 Gibson Thunderbird has a great history to it. We got it from the German musician Fred Zahl, who claims he got it from Marinus Gerritsen, the bass player of Golden Earring. The guitar comes with its original case and 1 year TFOA guarantee.
