Gibson Thunderbird

Due to their immense popularity these days, one may not know that the Gibson Thunderbird bass guitar (and its six-string equivalent, the Firebird) were actually the black sheep of the guitar industry upon their debut in the 1960s.  In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN London Vol. 4), Eero Koivisto discusses the unique history of the German-designed American guitar: he discusses Gibson's desires to spice up their brand in the 1960s, their commissioning of auto-designer Raymond Dietrich to accomplish this goal, its subsequent failure (in terms of sales), and rise to popularity over a decade later. The Gibson Thunderbird has since been used by numerous bands of note, including The Who, Sonic Youth, The Cure, Aerosmith, Guns and Roses, and many more. Eero tells us of his experience growing up in wonder of this particularly unconventional bass guitar, and how it inspired him both musically and in terms of design.

In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, "The Story of the DeLorean DMC-12" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 96, architect and designer Eero Koivisto discusses his passion for this timeless automobile, the DeLorean Motor Company, and the automotive industry mogul behind it all: John DeLorean.
