EPIPHONE Goes Heavy With New REX BROWN Bass

Epiphone has just unveiled their brand new collaboration with Pantera bassist Rex Brown, the Epiphone Rex Brown Thunderbird Bass.


“Sometimes, it’s not about the price, but the quality, and Epiphone has some of the coolest bass designs ever made, IMO,” says Rex Brown. “I’ve had Thunderbird’s as long as I can remember! There is nothing cooler looking than a TBird… All my favorite bass players growing up have played them!! From Tom Hamilton to Pete Way, these fckr’s Rule, you fool…”

Rex adds: “I worked really hard with the Epiphone guys, to design something that has never been done before! The pick-ups were made by Richard Aker, who has been with Gibson for 40+ years. We put the same thumpers that were in the ‘76 Anniversary T-Birds, passive & deadly!”

The Epiphone Rex Brown Thunderbird Bass features a 9-ply neck-through-body Mahogany and Walnut neck with a C-shape profile, Mahogany body wings, and a standard 34″ scale length. The Rex Brown offers a pair of Epiphone ProBucker 760 bass pickups featuring nickel covers, all controlled by two volume controls and a master tone control that feature smooth CTS potentiometers.

The Epiphone Rex Brown Thunderbird Bass is available here for $1,299.
