Overview

If you love it louder than Hell, then you're never too young to fall in love with Epiphone's Nikki Sixx Blackbird electric bass guitar. The original, "DeepSixx" humbuckers are directly mounted for more crunch, and, combined with a simple on/off toggle switch, help you recreate the distinct sound of M¶tley Cr¼e's glory days. Another innovative feature is the Opti-Grab device which helps with balancing this neck-heavy Epiphone bass while ripping off chunks of easily sustainable basslines. Aesthetically, it's no surprise the dark-haired legend went with a pitch black body with black hardware, adding iron crosses along the tapered neck fretboard as well as a specially designed pickguard. Bring this electric bass home sweet home for less with this great deal.

Ok I absolutley love this bass ive seen the Crue about 10 times now and Ive always seen Nikki with a T-bird but I saw this new thing and it is amazing I love the deep tones and sound it puts out with distortion it sounds simply amazing. So naturally I went and bought it I plugged her in to 1 of my amps and ripped out a couple of songs from other bands and it still sounds amazing but if your and avid Crue fan then this is the bass for you its extremely versitle and can do just about anything under the Metal rainbow. All in all this a great bass for experienced players and Crue fans. Besides its very cheap for a signature model.

I decided to try out the Nikki Sixx Blackbird in a guitar shop up in New York when I went shopping for a new bass. The Blackbird caught my eye because of the stand-out Thunderbird design, all with black hardware which I found was very appealing. Upon closer inspection, I was a tad confused as to why it didn't have any tone, or volume controls. I decided to give it whirl anyway. The sound, was nice, somewhat rich, natural you could even say. However, without the tone and volume knobs, it makes an extreme hassle to try and get other sound out of this very nice guitar. Having to go over to my amp everytime in order to adjust volume and or the EQ? Not gonna fly. The Blackbird, I think, is suitable for a place on your wall, not on stage. While very nice to look at, it just doesn't work. Pick it up for you collection kids, maybe even a practice bass at best. Do not look to this bass if you need something serious. No tone, and no volume knobs just don't cut it.

Great For Rock

By Tyler

from Irving, TX

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

I got this bass about 2 months ago and i love it, when im playing metal or hard rock. It has a great deep sound and i love the no knob part about it it has one on off switch but if you play anything but hard rock or metal, get a thunderbird. Thats my other bass and it sounds great.

Great Bass Godly

By CrueHeadCarp

from Mt Morris IL

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

What got me to want this bass in the 1st place was my love for Motley Crue and Nikki Sixx its awsome its got the Dual Deep Sixx pickups and the no tone or volume control makes it easy to play since u dont have to hassle with it and the pinky holder is great for people to like to pick and it helps counter the weight its a great bass totally worth the buy it looks and sounds great it a steal at its price so get while you can

Mean sounding bass

By Chris

from Lakewood,CO

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

This bass has a powerful mean sound. the bass has no nobs so it allows the bass and pickups make a natural sound. i love it and would recomend it for hard rock or metal. the deep sixx pickups deliver that deep bass sound that made me want to play bass in the first place! Great Bass Guitar!

Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar

By Pamela

from New Hampshire

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

I am a die hard CRUE FAN! I own this guitar and the Thunderbird Bass and they are both incredible. Deep Sixx Pickups make this guitar have a Deep Purr that anyone playing it would love. A picture does no justice for this guitar. It is truly a beautiful instrument.

Worth the money...

By Krist Deziel

from Woonsocket, RI

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

For the money, this bass delivers. It's deep and has a little crunch due to the lack of volume/tone pots. Volume is increased as well. With may active PU's tone is lost for gain. With these passive PU's it's got tone! It's a little heavy and has headstock dive. But if you want sac in your sound and looks as well for minimal price, this is the bass...

The Legend

By Andy Spades

from Commerce City, Colorado

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

Nikki Sixx has once again shown the world why he is a legendary bass player. his bass is built for such technical bass lines but has a playability that even beginning players can appreciate and use to their advantage. the opti-grab finally fixes the heavy neck weight and the head doesn't dip low wen you let go of it it stays nice and even. the pickups produce a gorgeous sound and they still have that crunch to make it heavy

Nikki Sixx Swings and Misses

By Zach

from Anderson, SC

Comments about Epiphone Nikki Sixx Signature Blackbird Bass Guitar:

This bass is absolutely horrible. Not only do you have no control over the tone, this thing is back-breaking heavy, plays terribly, and sounds like total junk. It looks cool, but that's all it's got going for it. You're better off spending the money on a good Dean and skipping this piece of junk.
