Gibson Unveils the 2021 USA Non-Reverse Thunderbird Bass
Gibson unveiled a plethora of new gear at Summer NAMM this year including a new addition to their Original Collection: the new non-reversed Thunderbird bass. The model is built with a mahogany body that comes in three colors: Faded Pelham, Inverness Green, and Sparkling Burgundy.
“Ever since it was first released back in 1965, the Non-Reverse Thunderbird has been the choice for forward-looking bassists who want to make their own path and steadfastly refuse to follow the crowd,” Gibson writes. “The Non-Reverse Thunderbird’s distinctive styling and huge, thunderous tone make it a standout on stage and in the studio. Now you have the opportunity to make one of these relatively rare ‘birds your own.”
The Thunderbird also features a mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and a pair of Thunderbird pickups. Each pickup has its own volume control while a master tone control lets you round out your sound. Other features include a three-ply white pickguard, a Graph Tech nut, a 3-point adjustable bridge, and Hipshot Ultralite tuners.
The Gibson Non-Reverse Thunderbird will be shipping in August with a street price of $1,799.
