    Mötley Crüe - Nikki Sixx Owned and Played Signature Model Thunderbird Bass S# 002690605 (Gibson, c. late 2000's). Owned and played by Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, this bass was one of the few early prototypes from the "Sixx Signature Series" crafted by Gibson. The bass was played by Nikki on the 2009 Mötley Crüe Saints of Los Angeles Tour. After Sixx retired it, he signed and inscribed it beautifully in silver ink, "SOLA '09" [Saints of Los Angeles]. Sixx has co-written many popular rock songs including "Home Sweet Home," "Girls Girls Girls," "Dr. Feelgood," "Shout At The Devil," "The Wild Side," and "Kickstart My Heart." The bass was obtained directly from Nikki Sixx by the current owner and includes the faux snakeskin-covered matching case and a signed COA from Nikki Sixx stating the history of the bass. In Excellent condition.
