Rock Like the God of Thunder

Gene Simmons is a legendary rock icon and the bassist from KISS, and his new Gibson Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird Bass reflects his tastes. Designed to meet the musical needs of modern bassists, it features the classic Reverse Thunderbird™ body and headstock shape. The G2 Thunderbird Bass is voiced with a pair of powerful T-Bird pickups, each with individual Volume controls and paired with a master Tone control. The bound ebony fretboard features pearloid reverse split diamond inlays. A Graph Tech® nut and Hipshot® Mini Clover tuners keep the tuning rock-solid, while the other end of the strings anchor to a Hipshot® Bass Bridge. The back of the headstock features a G2 logo. The Ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish is paired with Black Chrome hardware and a Mirror Plex truss rod cover and Mirror Plex pickguard with a laser engraved custom Gene Simmons logo. A modern hardshell case is included.
