Gene Simmons is a legendary rock icon and the bassist from KISS, and his Gibson Gene Simmons G2 Thunderbird Bass reflects his tastes. Designed to meet the musical needs of modern bassists, it features the classic Reverse Thunderbird body and headstock shape. The G2 Thunderbird Bass is voiced with a pair of powerful T-Bird pickups, each with individual Volume controls and paired with a master Tone control. The ebony fretboard features pearloid reverse split diamond inlays.

A Graph Tech nut and Hipshot Mini-Clover tuners keep the tuning rock-solid, while the other end of the strings anchor to a Hipshot Bass Bridge. The Ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish is paired with Black Chrome hardware and a Mirror Plex pickguard. A hardshell case is included.
