Looks like Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx is finally getting the signature treatment with his own bass line from Schecter Guitar Research!
The enigmatic bassist has long been well known for his love of Schechter basses and now he can finally call one his own with the upcoming release of the aptly named Schecter Sixx.
"It was an exciting and creative process to work with Schecter on the new Schecter Sixx Signature Series Bass," said Nikki. "It was important to all of us to design a bass that would feel right as well as sound amazing in the hands of all players, not just me. Every detail about the new Schecter Sixx comes from all of our collective experiences - whether it's my 30 years of playing live and recording or Schecter's unprecedented standards for making quality instruments for players of all genres. Simply said, this bass rocks!"
For those of you who can’t wait to check out the new ax in person, Nikki will be introducing the Schecter Sixx with an exclusive signing at the winter NAMM Conference in Anaheim, CA on January 26th from 3:00pm-4:00pm PST at the Schecter booth in Room 210-D. Good news for our resident Crue-head because us here at PAL will be attending NAMM as well.
"I really felt as if we instantly gelled and were looking to accomplish the same goal with this project,” adds Schecter's Executive Vice President, Marc LaCorte. “Above all, it was so refreshing to see an artist of Nikki's stature be so involved and genuinely concerned about every detail in the creation of this instrument."
