Product Description

1979 Gibson Thunderbird Electric Bass Guitar

One of the rarest production basses in the world a 1979 Gibson Thunderbird in Natural finish. Production records show that only 6 of these instruments were shipped in 1979.

This guitar is in good condition for its age with some light scratches and dings, moderate buckle rash on the rear, small chip on rear, modified strap location, nut has been replaced, strap locks have been installed but includes originals. Wiring does look to have been modified, but pots appear original.

Guitar is in perfect working order, plays great with a straight neck, the musician who sold us the bass was a gigging with it. We do not see any cracks, repairs, or major repairs.

The frets are in great condition with minor wear.

Bass comes with original hard shell case.
