These basses sound awesome through an amp with some treble boost. The
extra bass frequencies you get with the humbuckers compared to single coil
pickups keeps the sound nice and warm. I think that it would go with a
valve amp really well, although I can’t vouch for that as I only have a
transistor based rig. The neck, while chunky is comfortable for someone
with large hands (like me) but those of smaller stature may struggle a bit
up the treble end of the fretboard. One thing I would recommend to anyone
buying one of these is to just run a piece of scotchbright over the back of
the neck to get rid of the lacquer as it can really stick to your hand.
This only takes a few minuets and makes a great difference in how fast you
can get up and down the neck.

Gibson Nazi here! The real ones have through necks, not set. That one
sounds a bit flat. Maybe a bit of saturation would help.
I looked up the price – whoa, they’re cheap! Even their ‘Pro’ version, with
the through neck, is ‘value’.

I love these Thunderbird shapes and sounds.. Has anybody had some
experience with the standard t-bird 4 as well as with the t-bird pro 4? I
would like to have a comparison between the 2, as i like the look more of
the standard but active basses are usually better..

Which is better in sound, a thunderbird or a P bass squier?, do you think
they have similar sound

Excellent bass especially bearing in mind the price,but for only an extra
£30 or so you can get the through neck version.Worth it I think.
