Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx to Sell 'Staged-Played Basses' -

Motley Crue founder and bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed he is planning to start a new campaign in which he will sell his 'staged-played basses.'

"I have been asked 1000's of times to sell my basses I play onstage but have never found a way to do it and feel that that special collector would be getting more than just the instrument," Sixx writes. "Starting in Canada, I will be giving it a try to fulfil the years of fans requests."

"I know if I could of had this chance to meet a Keith Richards or a Joe Perry and have them play my guitar onstage I bought and give it to me after words, I would've jumped at the chance," he continues. "I think the thing that convinced me was the massive amount of emails I got about this and saying since you guy are gonna be doing a farewell tour soon, we will never get this chance again...Thanks guys......I will update you with a link in a week or so..."

Mötley Crüe's current North American tour schedule runs throughout  July; a complete list of confirmed shows can be found at
