1960s Gibson Thunderbird original thumbrest Gene Simmons KISS
This 1960s original Thunderbird thumbrest was removed by me from a 1970s Thunderbird Gene had used in the Kiss Meets The Phantom TV movie, the bass had been modified during Simmons time, and pickups changed, and pickguard switched. I'm not sure if Simmons added this thumbrest, or if John DeSalvo from the Tuff Darts added it later as he owned the bass too, after Gene & had added an original 60s pickguard & 60s pickup. I obtained the instrument from him in the 80s & removed this piece, it has been laying around ever since. Some paint/edge wear, and still has the original rusted screws.
