This is the new Thunder King bass!


This one really thumps and is simply an amazing work of bass art. It has fantastic balance and an organic quality to the shape which really stands out from other basses. The more you look at this instrument the more it becomes a part of you. The shape is slightly familiar but also looks completly different from the back to the front. As you can see in the pictures, this is not the average neckthrough design.
The aged hardwoods give you a bass that compromises nothing for the sound with a super solid feel and heavy weight that will ring through on recordings like a truely exceptional instrument should (we've tried it). On top of that you will find this bass to be one of the quickest and easiest to play.
