Epiphone Nikki Sixx Blackbird Solidbody Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Fast maple neck plus the solid low-end thump of a mahogany body
  • DeepSixx humbuckers deliver earthshaking bass tone
  • A motley assortment of unique hardware and a crue of cool appointments
Fast maple neck plus the solid low-end thump of a mahogany body

To equip the Nikki Sixx Blackbird with the instantly recognizable thump you'd expect from a metal bass, Epiphone went with the tried-and-true combination of a solid mahogany body with a comfortable maple neck. This gives you an amazing balance of chest-pounding resonance and the fast response you need to pull off percussive bass lines. And thanks to its narrow 1.5" nut, you don't need massive hands to rock out with a Nikki Sixx Blackbird bass.

DeepSixx humbuckers deliver earthshaking bass tone

When it comes to capturing the subterranean sound of Motley Crue's bass tone, ordinary pickups simply didn't do the trick. That's why the team at Epiphone went back to the drawing board to build a pair of humbuckers worthy of the Nikki Sixx Blackbird bass. If you want truly thunderous low-end thump, then you're going to love the Nikki Sixx Blackbird bass's pair of DeepSixx humbuckers. And check the controls on this beast - there are none! All you need is an on/off toggle when you're dealing with this level of bass tone perfection.

A motley assortment of unique hardware and a crue of cool appointments

The first thing you'll notice about the Nikki Sixx Blackbird bass's hardware is that it's all black (as it should be). But when you take a closer look, you'll find a collection of cool details that make this a super-fun bass to play. For instance, its black die-cast tuners and 3-point adjustable tailpiece give you amazing stability. Speaking of stability, the Nikki Sixx Blackbird features a unique Opti-Grab brace which lets you anchor your hand behind the tailpiece - perfect for hard picking techniques at the bridge.
