Question:

 

"What is the best way to fix the horrible neck dive on the Epiphone Thunderbird IV Goth?"

 

I have checked around, but before I start drilling new holes in my bass, I wanted to check here first!

 

Thanks!

OK...

 

I did a lot more searching on the internet and the most common method of fixing this problem is to just add a second strap peg behind the neck (on the body) where they meet...(the little space between the back plate logo and where the neck meets the body)...I have not tried it, but when I do, I will give a report, as my band A DOLPHIN is about to start our summer festival gigs....seems so simple I wonder why Epiphone did not just DO this instead of the way it is now? Hmmmmmm.....

 

If this is confusing check the pics and instructions on this link:
