Nikki Sixx sig Thunderbird on Reverb

With Mike Lull pickups, chromed hardware, hipshot ultralight tuners. And normal controls instead of the kill switch.
A pretty bass (of you clean up the pick guard)

It is his bass. He had a couple others for sale recently.

Has to be. He bought one and changed the pickups to Lulls, and it's at a shop he patronizes. How many other Nikki Sixx sigs with Lulls could there be in Seattle?

Makes sense.

A friend of mine has been looking for a Thunderbird for quite a while. I think this one would be perfect for him.

 It's mine!   :)
It had a chrome PG and TR cover as well, but I'm keeping those.

As God is my witness, I thought Thunderbirds could fly.....

Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

A friend of mine has been looking for a Thunderbird for quite a while. I think this one would be perfect for him.

On mine, the maple wings sound kind of dense and dead, none of the vibrancy of a Bird with maho wings, kind of thuddish, but maybe that is what Nikki wanted (and Fräulein Rommel no longer desired!).
It ain't no country until Dave sez it is!
