  1. Here is a 2001 Nikki sixx back bird, a thunderbird but his signature model.

    It has iron cross inlays , is flat black , clear pickguard.

    Bass comes with dunlop straplocks and a strap.

    I am only selling this because of some issues my fiance is having , she is more important then a piece of wood to me so off this goes, i got it for a great price and am trying to pass that along, locals will get it for 850$ cash.

    The bass is worn. No cracks, no previous repairs or anything like that. Just heavily played for 10 years and this finish is like that on a highway one finish. No serious dings or dents , mostly the finish being worn from skin contact and it looks like a belt buckle on that back. I was going to have marty bell refinish it , I believe for this would be about 400$ but I like the worn look and the fact its legit

    It sound great . The original case has some tolex wear but is solid.

    I just rather have a regular thunderbird then a sig, i could trade for one of those in decent shape.

    Its going to need a setup tho, my town has no where to get that done and a t bird is something i dont trust myself working on due to neck thru, it just has some fretbuzz going on










    Above and between pickups, previous owners thumb rested there and wore the paint




    925$ shipped , money order only at this time , or someother way fee from fee's

  6. opti grab , its stock on these. Nikki perfers it has a place for him to anchor his pinky on , i used it a bit but found it limits my abilities , I was going to take it off and have a metal worker friend make a beer bottle opener that would be a direct fit :D
