Pantera’s Rex Brown announces signature bass with Gibson


Pantera bassist Rex Brown has announced a signature bass with Gibson.

The Rex Brown Signature Thunderbird Bass, which is based on Brown’s own Thunderbird, features a mahogany neck and body and comes in an ebony, gold-accented finish.

“Before meeting up in Nashville for a tour of Gibson USA, I got to meet the whole team at Gibson,” Brown says in a press release. “[Gibson Brand President] Cesar Gueikian and I forged a strong bond that day, that I can only describe as ‘Long Lost Brothers!’ He invited me to his home that night and we played music into the wee hours.”

“Gibson has come so far, in such a short amount of time, and I’m beyond delighted to be in cahoots with this extraordinary bunch of music professionals,” Brown adds. “This new Thunderbird with Gibson is a life-long dream.”

Brown released his debut solo album, Smoke on This…, in 2017.
