I don't desperately need another bass or anything but I have noticed that a few web sites are listing the Gibson Nikki Six Blackbird(t-bird) signature bass at about $700, down from the outrageous list of like $2700. This is price with case also, I checked. So while I'm not a Crue fan the alure of a made in the USA, neck through body Gibson instrument at such a great price is tempting.

I've read a couple reviews out there and they are split evenly, but people either love it or hate it, most concuring that they expect a hell of alot more from a bass they paid $1700-1400 for.

Anyone out there have an opinion on this instrument or gibson basses? Gibson isn't well know for their basses and I'm thinking that's for a reason. At this price it's almost worth buying as an investment because in 25 years it will be rare (obviously unpopular) but still a brand name USA signature model instrument that someone with way too much money will just have to have as by then Motely Crue will be popular again. Crap, I think I just convinced myself.
Thanks in advance.
