Fender

A vintage style baritone guitar for lower tuning and deep, warm tone.

Players continue to praise the Pawn Shop Series for evoking the more eccentric Fender creations of the mid-'60s to mid-'70s while delivering thoroughly modern sound and quality with a wealth of various Fender elements. New for 2013, the Pawn Shop Series introduces yet another pleasingly unconventional assortment of "guitars that never were but should have been," in which new models take the stage and long-vanished classics return in modern form.

The Pawn Shop Bass VI marks the revamped return of a historic Fender instrument, the seldom-seen Fender Bass Guitar (also known as the Bass VI) of 1961-1975. This updated version of the baritone classic features the traditional short scale (30") and is armed with Special Design Hot Jaguar single-coil neck and middle pickups and a powerful JZHB humbucking bridge pickup.

Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switching, four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard (Three-color Sunburst and Black models) and three-ply parchment pickguard (Candy Apple Red model), two Jazz Bass control knobs (volume, tone), vintage-style adjustable six-saddle bridge with "floating" tremolo tailpiece, and vintage-style tuners.

Includes gig bag.

      Comments about Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI Electric Baritone Guitar:

      Received with good setup and intonation. Excellent finish and workmanship. Strings too light, replaced with LB_767-6S La Bella Fender Bass VI - 6 String Stainless Steel Round Wound Set. Some will prefer flat wounds. Use with MXR KFK-1 Ten Band EQ Unit for wide range of tones from deep Bass to LA Wrecking Crew Beachboys 60's Baritone sound.

        Comments about Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI Electric Baritone Guitar:

        Set-up was great, intonation close to perfect. Quality instrument at reasonable price. Wide range of tones. Best used with an equalizer to realize all of the tonal possibilities. I did upgrade to heavier set of strings: La Bella Fender Bass VI - 6 String Stainless Steel Round Wound Set. Stock strings are too light.

        Comments about Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI Electric Baritone Guitar:

        I really love this bass. Very fun to play and allows you to be more creative, especially if you're usually a guitarist.
        Tone sounds better than I thought it would but not quite as bassy as I'd like.
        The biggest downside is that the strings can easily slip off of the bridge, this has happened during a couple of gigs and practices. Though I did have it in drop D during the time.

        If you're looking for something a little different or something to experiment with, I would highly recommend this.

          Wanted a Bass VI for years but din't have $5000 laying around to buy a vintage one. This thing is sweet. Don't hesitate on this one. It is a Bass VI with just a few changes. Does exactly what I wanted it to do.
