“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," Sixx says.

Hollywood, CA (January 18, 2013) -- Schecter is proud to announce the partnership with a true modern-day rock icon by signing Mötley Crüe / Sixx: A.M. bassist, NY Times bestselling author and radio host Nikki Sixx, adding even more fire power to its roster.

“It was an exciting and creative process to work with Schecter on the new Schecter Sixx Signature Series Bass,” states Sixx, “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!” Schecter’s Executive Vice President, Marc LaCorte adds, “I really felt as if we instantly gelled and were looking to accomplish the same goal with this project. 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.”
