Epiphone Elitist Thunberbird Reviews
I'm in a country band right now and have been for the last 2 years. Been playing all my life. Like country and rock.
Paid about $1200 at a local guitar shop. I wanted a new bass and was getting tired of my old Fender P. I'll keep that one in the closet for a while as I get myself up to speed on this new Epi Thunderbird.

It's been about 6 months that I've owned the bass and so far, no problems or issues. Haven't found anything that I don't like. Perhaps the fact that it is pretty expensive - especially for an Epiphone.
Quality and construction are pretty good. The pickups are supposedly made in the USA but the body and neck are probably made overseas. I think that's how Epiphone basses are manufactured. I think only Gibson guitars and basses are actually made in the US.
Overall, I love it. Is it worth the money, maybe not, but oh well. It certainly plays and sounds like a more expensive bass so to me it was a good purchase.Jeremy
