Weird Nikki Sixx Blackbird (no Opti-Grab) Help!

Hi,

 

I've just bought an used Epiphone Nikki Sixx Blackbird (S/N 1210200679) on eBay and noticed that is doesn't have the Opti-Grab on board.

Should be a different edition or something else?

 

Here's the link of the auction:

Thank you so much!

Alessandro

looks like it was just left off in production.

That's interesting [confused] It looks like someone missed something on the assembly line.

IMO from a collectors stand point it would be worth less since it's incomplete.

From a players stand point I like it better. I tried out a Blackbird and tried to use the Opti_Grab

and it just felt weird, so for me I'd never use it. I also don't like extra hardware on a bass

that would ether get in the way or not be used (thumb rest, pick up covers, etc...)

Personally I like yours better with out the handle.
