1987 Gibson IV. This may look like the umpteenth P-bass clone at first sight, it is actually much closer to a Thunderbird than you would think. An all mahogany bass with a set neck and TB+ pickups. Controls are similar to the T-bird, Volume, Volume , Tone. There are a few headstrong features however: the fretboard is ebony with off-center dotted position markers and the headstock has a 2 x 2 lay-out.
The IV (and the very similar 5 string V) were only built between 1987 and 1989.

The IV is featured on page 90 of The Gibson Bass Book
(the V is on page 91).

The book can be ordered @ www.thegibsonbassbook.com

Santa has been jonesing for a 1963 Thunderbird, ever since he laid eyes on the Gibson Bass Book. If your presents are late this year, it's because he can't put the book away.
My sincerest apologies beforehand.
