Epiphone have provided a first glimpse at the new series of Embassy Pro and Thunderbird Vintage Pro bass guitars premiered at Summer NAMM 2017.
Commemorating the 60th anniversary of Epiphone’s partnership with Gibson, the Embassy Pro is a tribute to the elusive '60s bass, merging vintage aesthetics with updated hardware for the modern age. Featuring two ProBucker #760 Bass Humbuckers, a Tune-o-matic bridge and '60s style ‘claw’ tailpiece, the Embassy Pro’s updated two-per-side tuners also boast improved balance and stability, offering a reliable vintage inspired model for the contemporary rock bassist.
Prominently used by The Who’s John Entwistle throughout the 60’s, the legendary tone and design of the Thunderbird has also received a reboot by Epiphone with the Thunderbird Vintage Pro. Featuring updated specs including two ProBucker Bass pickups, a claw tailpiece and improved electronics, the Thunderbird Vintage Pro is also available in Alpine White, Ebony, and Tobacco Sunburst.
Epiphone are distributed in Australia via Australian Musical Imports.
