Gibson brings the Thunderbird bass to a 30 1/2" scale.

Nashville, TN (March 23, 2011) -- New from Gibson USA, the Thunderbird Short Scale Bass (which at 30 1/2" is still somewhat larger than a full-sized guitar) is designed for players with shorter arms and smaller hands, beginners and students, or those who are more familiar with 6-string guitar scale lengths.



The Thunderbird Short Scale Bass has a solid mahogany "Reverse" body shape with grain-textured Satin Ebony nitrocellulose finish. It has a glued-in quartersawn mahogany neck and rosewood 22-fret fretboard. The neck is a Thunderbird profile and measures .850" deep at the 1st fret and .900" at the 12th, with a width of 1.60" across its PLEK-cut Corian nut. Black-plated hardware includes a three-point Thunderbird bridge with individually adjustable saddles and Grover tuners. The bass features contemporary Thunderbird Bass pickups with ceramic magnets and individual volume controls, plus a master tone control. The bass' $1549 MSRP includes a hardshell case.
