Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Bass VI  - Journeyman 3-Tone Sunburst with Hard Shell Case

Unleash Retro Vibes and Modern Playability with the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Bass VI

Prepare to be captivated by the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Bass VI, a true masterpiece that pays homage to Fender's iconic '60s-era 6-string hybrid bass/guitar creation. This instrument effortlessly straddles the worlds of guitar and bass, boasting a 30-inch scale length with an E-E tuning, sitting one octave below a standard guitar. With its highly resonant 2-piece select alder body and three Fender Custom Shop '62 Jaguar pickups, the Bass VI offers a tonal spectrum ranging from classic Fender thump to a cutting spaghetti western rasp, especially when you engage the "strangle" switch. The '60s Style Oval "C" profile neck, fitted with a flat-lam rosewood fingerboard and 21 vintage-tall frets, ensures easy playability, making it a versatile choice for both bassists and guitarists.

A Bridge Between Worlds: Bass and Guitar Unite The Fender Bass VI sits at the crossroads of bass and guitar, providing a 30-inch scale length that bridges the gap between Fender's standard guitar (25.5-inch) and bass (34-inch) scales. This allows guitarists and bassists to seamlessly transition to the Bass VI without a steep learning curve. Designed to serve double duty in the studio, the Bass VI offers a unique opportunity for musicians to explore new sonic dimensions.

Vintage Design, Modern Versatility The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Bass VI faithfully recreates the vintage Bass VI with remarkable attention to detail. From the strangle switch to the flip-up foam mute system, every vintage-correct feature is meticulously replicated. The trio of Fender Custom Shop '62 Jaguar pickups offers a diverse tonal palette, while the floating tremolo system adds shimmer and movement to your playing. With a nitrocellulose Journeyman Relic finish for a comfortably worn-in feel, this instrument delivers classic aesthetics and modern versatility in one impressive package.
