The humble Bass VI: 50% guitar, 50% bass, 100% awesome. There’s always been a small collection of guitarists and bass players who love the Fender Bass VI, and we count ourselves among them. This odd-ball guitar-bass hybrid has been the secret weapon of producers and experimental players for decades and for good reason – it rocks!
Used by everyone from The Beatles to Robert Smith of The Cure, Jet Harris of The Shadows and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, this strange offset has been on more records than you may first think. Tuned an octave lower than a guitar and featuring a vintage-style tremolo, thin neck and array of tones locked away inside, thanks to the trio of single-coil pickups, we'd highly recommend playing one, if you haven't already.
