    Yeah, a whole lot of work did not go into that.
    "Hmm, how close can we cut this without Gibson suing us?"

    Nikki is turning into just as much of a whore as Gene and Paul.

    Shouldn't they have just put in the first 7 frets and called it a day? 2 OCTAVES? Purleeze. (/catty filter off)

    The last Niki Sixx bass did not sell well. After a while Epiphone couldn't hardly give them away for 1/3 the original price.

    It seems to be made from a good combination of decent quality materials. It's probably a pretty good bass. I'd be interested in trying one, before I made any negative statements about it. ;)

    Same went for the Gibson Nikki Sixx bass. The first version sold poorly, the reworked 2nd version sold worse. Does no one appreciate the Opti-Grab™???

    Well, then it would suit my playing. Dumbed down and mediocre.

    I had a first version Blackbird for a few years... it was a decent bass, but all I could think about when I tried the Opti-Grab out was how much leverage the bass has in breaking your pinky if you stick it though there...

    it looks just like a t-bird,only it's uglier.seriously,why does this guy even have a signature bass? his bass lines are just root notes :rollno:. at least they didnt bring back that retarded pinky hook thing.

    It looks like someone sanded the edges of T-Bird and gave it an ugly paint job.

    I own a Gibson Nikki Sixx T-bird and ( regardless of the absurd opti-grab ) it's a decent sounding/playing bass ( a touch brighter and tighter than my regular T-bird ).

    Gotta say I don't like the Schecter Sixx though. As it's allready been said it looks like they've tried to get as close to a thunderbird shape without being sued.

    Pretty fulgy.
