Gibson Basses / Re: Music videos that feature Thunderbirds

Apparently, the origin of the band's name is as follows: "The band's name was derived from the ethnic slur that Japanese people look like monkeys, and that Asian people are said to be "yellow" in skin color."

Wicked sense of humor.

Here's one of the vids I listened to yesterday. Nice selection of Thunderbirds!

It's probably neck-heavy?  :rimshot: The Stuka of basses.

Agreed! I listened to quite a few of their tunes on YouTube yesterday while working. Really good music and interesting to listen to.
I also found some bass covers of their songs that were really good: all but one I listened to were played with Thunderbirds, new, old, NR, etc. The bass riffs are terrific and perfectly suited to T birds.

These guys have great sounding music and the bass player seems to favor Thunderbirds.

If I were going to buy basses solely based on this video and after listened to finger, slap (never a favorite of mine) and pick, they would be in this order:
1. Thunderbird
2. Ric
3. P bass and Stingray tied
4. Jazz
5. W

No!
If these are anywhere as near as good as what's claimed in the earlier videos, then the old bolt-on neck Epi Tbirds will pretty much become worthless.
And I think that because these are coming out, there was zero interest in my Japanese market Epi Thunderbird.
