Squier brings you the welcome return of a long-vanished Fender classic in the deeply satisfying form of the Vintage Modified Bass VI six-string bass. The original model of 1961-1975 has provided distinctively voiced low end for everyone from the Beatles to the Black Keys, Cream to the Cure, and many others.

The Vintage Modified Bass VI delivers authentically vintage-style look and tone, with a few modern touches such as a comfortable “modern C” neck profile and 9.5” fingerboard radius (the originals were 7.25”), and three custom Jaguar single-coil pickups with notched “claw” shielding rings (reverse-wound/reverse-polarity middle pickup).

Other features include the model’s classic 30” scale (standard tuning one octave lower than a guitar), maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays, four two-position slider switches (on/off switch for each pickup and one bass-cut “strangle” tone circuit switch), tortoiseshell pickguard (three-ply white-black-white on Black model), two black plastic control knobs (master volume, master tone), and vintage-style six-saddle bridge with non-locking floating vibrato.

I have always been intrigued by the concept of the Bass VI ever since I saw a rare vintage Fender Bass VI a few years ago. I honestly never thought I would actually own one myself, due to the high price tag and (at the time) how little I thought I'd use it, but having discovered that Squire make a high quality and yet very affordable model I decided to take the plunge and purchase one from Portmac Guitars and I am happy to report that I am absolutely delighted with this instrument! It is a very unique instrument with some great tonal variety available thanks to the four pickup switches, allows for the playing of chords with no muddiness and it kind of 'forces' the player to think differently and adopt a very different approach and style when playing bass lines, especially with the higher B and E strings at your disposal (and let's not forget the tremelo system bridge!). I can honestly see these guitars making a 'come back' in years to come!
