Only one bassist could weave hard-hitting walking bass lines under Dimebag Darrell’s frenetic guitar solos, and that man is Rex Brown. Besides his celebrated run as Pantera’s bassist, Rex has also lent his talents to the supergroups Down and Kill Devil Hill, and he has unleashed his thunderous aggression with NOLA’s sludge metal icons Crowbar. Built around a muscular slab of mahogany, the Gibson Rex Brown Signature Thunderbird includes everything you’d expect from a Rex Brown-spec’d bass. The Rex Brown Thunderbird boasts a comfortable, easy-playing neck and fingerboard, a pair of scorching-hot active humbuckers, and rock-solid Hipshot hardware. You also get eye-grabbing gold accents and distinctive Rex Brown appointments. Anyone searching for a killer electric bass with classic looks and vulgar tone will dig the Rex Brown Signature Thunderbird.
Packed with Rex Brown’s preferred appointments
The Rex Brown Signature Thunderbird comes loaded with a fine assortment of the former Rex Rocker’s preferred extras. For starters, this electric bass is a pleasure to rock out on, thanks to its smooth, rounded mahogany neck and easy-playing rosewood fingerboard. Its Hipshot bridge and Mini-Clover tuning machines ensure rock-solid intonation, while a Drop D Xtender enables easy — and instantaneous — drop tuning. You also get a high-quality Graph Tech nut and classic acrylic dot fingerboard inlays. This attention-grabbing Thunderbird vaunts head-turning gold hardware, plus Rex’s signature on the truss rod cover and a backplate embellished with a unique Rex Brown doodle.
Great tone from dual active humbucking pickups
Gibson’s Rex Brown Signature Thunderbird delivers colossal output with serious levels of low-end punch, courtesy of its Rexbucker T-Bird active humbucking pickups. You can coax a near-endless range of sonic textures out of this electric bass guitar. To begin with, you get a separate volume knob for each pickup, giving you access to blended pickup tones you can’t achieve with a traditional 3-way pickup selector. You also get a master tone control for dialing in the perfect amount of top-end snap. And lastly, a push-pull pot on the Rex Brown Thunderbird’s tone knob toggles between active and passive operation.
