Item #: 270
Bring the thunder with this classic bass pickup. We pattern our Thunderbird design on the originals but with a few notable improvements including a hotter bridge pickup for better balance, and a quick wax potting to prevent the pickup cover from being overly microphonic. The result is clear and smooth tone without losing that trademark Thunderbird growl. Custom bobbins, Alnico 5 bar magnets, steel base plate and covers made to the original specs.
DC: Neck 7.95K, Bridge 9K
Optional black pickup shims (1/16" neck and 1/8" bridge) are also available if you want to retrofit an Epiphone bass with the rectangular plastic pickups.
