Once you have the country amp sorted, you'll then need to add a Stingray 5 to the collection.
Last time I checked, Stingrays are not Thunderbird shaped.

TBSO? But which one?
I thought this may be prime territory for a sparkly P Bass? :D

I don’t know enough about amps, but I would imagine a Bassman of some sort would get you there. There are a couple in the classifieds I think.

Saw Madeleine Peyroux a few years ago, her bassist used a Stingray 5...
Ive seen metal players using GK, and country bassists using the same. ... :shrug:
Whatever can be used for whatever imo.

Well, if you're worried that your amp isn't suited to playing country music, then the mid-heavy Thunderbird tone wouldn't suit either. Just trying to help you spend money :D

I have been known to think out loud about a fuschia flake Warmoth FrankenP with wenge/ebony J neck and an AVRI63 pickup ... then I remember I need another Thunderbird.

You should jump on those Geoff. I have my heart set on a Thunderbucker 63N.

You know what they say, or to quote Baz Cooper (describing the original reverse Gibson Thunderbird II) "Best Precision ever!"

I would think a Bassman would be awesome for country, but if you don't want to lug one of those a Quilter BB800 would be great I would think. Solid lows, highs are there but not glassy like many D class heads I've tried.

The Traynor is pretty much a Bassman, just bigger and dirtier.

I'm surprised no one had said MM HD130/HD150.

If I do get another amp (instead of relying on a pre/DI as my alternate) the Bassman 500 does look interesting.

Packing is one of my finer points :) .(image on my post). Fender Bassman 500.
Seriously, Fat & clean sound or gritty & distorted, this head does it all. Running through a Bassman 410 & Bassman 115 underneath nails it. I put my Tonehammer DI pedal in front & the fat is even fatter.
