Mötley Crüe and Sixx:AM bassist Nikki Sixx went live on Facebook today to announce his new Schecter “Mummy Sixx” collection of signature bass guitars. This is not the first time Nikki Sixx has had a signature line of basses through Schecter, as the Schecter Sixx Signature Series Bass was released a few years ago. The new “Mummy Sixx” collection will be personally wrapped, modified, and played on stage by Nikki Sixx during two upcoming Sixx:AM tours with Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach and Shinedown. He will also be autographing the basses and personally presenting them to the purchaser at their chosen show.
According to the official Nikki Sixx Bass website, on the experience, Nikki Sixx says, “I had been asked 1000’s of times to sell the basses I play onstage, but it took a long time to do it in such a way that the collector would be getting more than just the instrument. I tried to create the experience I would’ve wanted as a fan with a Keith Richards or a Joe Perry… If I could’ve had them play my guitar onstage and give it to me afterward, I would’ve jumped at the chance. All of my basses include a meet & greet with me, photo op and the basses are personalized however the collector wants making it what I hope is a truly special experience.”
