Squier by Fender Vintage Modified Bass VI
Taking the range of an electric guitar and dropping it by one octave, Squier’s Vintage Modified Bass VI is based on the original design that Fender introduced in the 1960’s. The baritone guitar became a huge hit, being used on records by the Beatles and Cream, and has continued to have new life breathed into it by artists like the Cure and the Black Keys.
Three custom Jaguar single-coil pickups drive the tone of this unique axe while a unique on/off switch for each pickup allows players to quickly switch between tones. Additionally, a Strangle circuit gives players the ability to scoop their desired tone to give it even more of a low-end crunch. This effect can be used to double guitar or bass parts live or on recordings to give that extra thickness to sound.
Seeing as how this selection isn’t built like a standard bass guitar, the Vintage Modified Bass VI therefore eschews many of the playing restraints that typically accompany massive 6-string guitars. This is a 30 inch scale axe so its smaller design and fast maple neck mean you’ll have the comfort and smooth playability of an electric guitar while harnessing the deep and thunderous sounds of a bass.
