**SOLD** **SOLD** Bi-Centenial 1976 Gibson Thunderbird in excellent condition. Original Tobacco Sunburst finish with very few marks. No headstock break or repair!! Serial number:06240211. Through neck construction with reverse body shape. One piece Mahogany centrepiece & Mahogany wings.Rosewood fretboard, laminated pickguard, 2 humbucking pickups, 34 & 3/8 inch scale length. Modelled directly from the 1963 Thunderbird. New additions in 76 were the 3 point bridge and the Red White & Blue insignia with 1976 written underneath. Original case, pickups, pots and hardware. A previous owner had added a Dimarzio pickup at the neck position between the existing neck pickup and the fretboard !! Ive had it professionally filled, blocked back and the area has been resprayed. Its difficult to see even up close. See the detailed pictures. From various angles the work cant be seen. Other than this small area the rest of the finish is original. An extra volume knob had been added for the Dimarzio pickup. ( and therefore an extra pot in the control cavity) Ive left this volume knob intact and wired it up so it is a master volume. The headstock has had no breaks or repairs,its clean as is the neck and fretboard. Great action and clean frets. Superb bass & hard to find.
