    I am really entreaged by the Nikki Sixx Blackbird bass with its opti-grab. has anyone ever used one on their bass? He claims it is used to help move the bass around.

    I have a Blackbird and it's pretty much useless (the handle not the bass). I guess you could use it to feed your cord through.

    It's 'opti' for the eye, and 'grab' from where you grab it.

    Yeah, opti-grabbing it.

  10. And that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - I need this. The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. And this. And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair...

    Basically, you're supposed to hook your pinky around it when you play pick-style near the bridge. It's supposed to help counterbalance the horrible design of the T-bird.

    If you play fingerstyle at all, then it's useless. Also, if you play with a pick and NOT near the bridge, then it's useless.



    Basically, it's useless.

    So apparently the optigrab has no special purpose on this bass. poor bass

    My dear family, guess what. Today I found out what my special purpose is for. Gosh what a great time I had. I wish my whole family could have been here with me.

    SO I guess this is another example of Nikki Sixx having more influence and power than brain cells (or seratonin)
