Trade EB-3 for a Thunderbird


Recommended Posts

Hey matt,

 

I've already declared my positive prejudice towards Thunderbirds... but there was that alarming post re a recent model's shocking early fret wear, so be careful man...

 

... &, as I've said before in this Forum, if you are unsure... you can always find a quiet place, close your eyes & ask yourself that age old question... "if in my situation, what would 'Jack Bruce' do"?

 

Any pics?

That was one of the new Thunderbird Pros. That issue hasn't come up to my knowledge in the original Thunderbirds.

 

I say do it.

I did it. I always wanted a Thunderbird, but I got the EB-3 because it has a few extra features. But I don't really care about those anymore. Tomorrow I'll change the strings and get it cleaned up. Maybe post some pics. The only thing I've found so far is a little chip in the finish. What would be a good fix for that? But I'm still really happy with the decision. The kid I traded with was really happy to get the EB-3. I'm glad he will appreciate it more than me. It was a nice bass and deserves a good home.

 

The only other problem is now I need a case for it. It does not fit my hard case or gig bag. Any ideas?
