Hello, theres a guy who sells the new sixx thunderbird (the one with the maple top en X markers). I dont have the chance to play it because he lives far away, I have try a standar tbird and I would like to read some opinions from people who have played both. the standar sound warm and dark and imo you must play it with pick to get the sound, e string distorts easily if you play hard with the pick. the sound is dark and warm but a bit loose. playing with fingers sounds mutted with no highs at all. will the nikki sixx sound diferent? I love the thunderbird look but not too much the sound, I dont like the X on sixx bass but if it sounds better (specially with fingers) I'll get it. Thank you for your help guys.
