Signature Bass of the Kiss bassist

The Gibson Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird Ebony convinces as Signature Bass the God or Thunder not only with the unmistakable Kiss look, but also with solid rock sounds and first-class handling. While the classic set-neck construction with mahogany neck and body create the basis for a powerful sound, the rounded neck profile promises comfortable playing characteristics.

Last but not least, indestructible Hipshot Hardware completes the Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird Bass from Gibson.

GIBSON Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird Ebony

Traditional set-neck construction

For the construction of the Gene Simmons Thunderbird Bass Gibson USA relies on the classic set-neck construction with a long 34" scale length (864 mm) and mahogany neck and body, which creates the basis for an extremely powerful sound with well-dosed punch. The not too powerful "Rounded" neck profile also promises comfortable playing characteristics in all positions of the ebony fingerboard, in which chic Reversed Split Diamond inlays mark the positions.

Massive rock sound

At the bass amp, the Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird naturally presents itself as a demonic rocker, whose powerful sound image hammers every groove into the pit of your stomach with full force. Responsible for this are the powerful Rhythm T-Bird and Lead T-Bird humbuckers, whose signals can be freely mixed via their own volume controls for an enormous variety of sounds. To adjust the sound, the electric bass guitar also has a passive treble control.

Hipshot Hardware

High-quality Hardware from Hipshot, which completes even sweaty gigs with fiery show interludes with unwavering reliability, completes the Gibson Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird Bass. As bridge the massive Hipshot SuperTone Hardtail is used, which not only supports the powerful sound character of the Signature Bass , but also guarantees an exact adjustment of intonation and string action. At the headstock, lightweight Hipshot Ultralite tuners with small cloverleaf vanes also ensure precise and robust tuning.
