A unique Fender original returns.
Originally created to be a studio instrument that could handle the Nashville "tic/tac" sound, the Fender Bass VI has built a loyal following among guitarists looking for a baritone guitar with a look and feel similar to the popular Jaguar. Features include a bleached 3-color Sunburst finished on an alder body, small quarter sawn plain-grain C-shaped neck with a round laminated rosewood fingerboard, Jaguar pickups (middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity) and vintage nickel Jazzmaster/Jaguar bridge. Includes a limited-release embroidered case and certificate.

Having owned an original 3 switcher V1 bass and now playing the so called "Custom shop" RI it falls way behind the original bass that Fender brought out in the 60's. Out of the case the set up was sloppy to say the least and your paying heaps of dollars for it. All I can say is once Fender once made guitars sadly now they are just "put" together
I love this bass because it makes the bass a lead instrument rather than putting it in the shadows. It sounds good to!
My Fender Custom Shop Bass VI arrived with cracks in the finish. TO add to that, it took several hours to properly set the bass up. Action/Truss Rod/Nut all needed adjustment. The Fender Custom Shop added two cardboard shims under the neck, with had to be replaced with proper shimming material, and doubled in size. Great piece of guitar history, but could have been set up much better by the factory.
This bass is NOT meant for Metal. This Bass is meant for classic rock and blues like stuff. The Bass sounds great and you can vary your tone in many ways. It took a while to get used to the tuning (Its just a guitar tuned down 1 octave, not a true six string bass). It sounded very good through the V4 BH i was playing through. This thing even has a whammy bar (sweet!), so you can get some real cool sounds out of it. THe price is a bit steep though. But the bass was one of great quality. Go Fender!!
