Squier Vintage Modified Bass VI OW · Electric Bass Guitar

In 1961 Fender wanted to expand its program and as Danelectro introduced a 6 string guitar bass which was used by former guitar superstar Duane Eddy, it was decided to bring out a much more sophisticated model. That was the birth of the Bass VI. The bass VI was meant to help guitar players over the transition from electric guitar to electric bass guitar. In principle, this bass is a guitar with a long scale length and tuned an octave lower. Prominent users were Jack Bruce and the Beatles. In the 70's the Bass VI gained late notoriety due to the Dutch band "Hank the Knife & the Jets" who used the Bass VI as a Baritone guitar. Old originals of this Instruments are rare and very expensive, but there is a remedy: the Squier Vintage Modified Bass VI OW is a reprint of this exotic guitar at a moderate price. Optics, circuit and equipment meet the original. Exotic, but very cool.

Good but unfinished

User on 07.06.2017

I wanted to have a bass VI for a long time so I bought this as a little pleasure of mine, not my main instrument. The product in itself is good, it's a nice bass guitar that respect the legacy off the bass VI. BUT, on the other hand, it's a pity that it comes as such a poorly finished product. I had to replace the bridge and the strings to have something playable. out of the box, there is so much buzzing that you can't play anything correctly. This is something largely reported on the internet, so I wasn't that surprised. There was an extra investment of around 100 euro, and now it's a very nice guitar.

On the other hand musik produktiv was very fast in the process of my order.

I love it

Death on 28.05.2016

I wont say much, just that I've wanted a Bass VI all my life but I couldnt even afford a japanese one. Now I finally have it and Im hella happy. The only thing I didnt like about the bass is that the binding is poorly done, as the nut and the strings are too thing. But well, 2 out of those 3 things have a very simple solution, and for the price I cannot complain

Great inspiring instrument

User on 30.03.2016

A very inspiring instrument for a musician with amateur ambitions. It will need some adjustments, it's difficult to intonate the sixth string, the finish is not the very best (dust and some scratches), but it's OK thinking of the price. A great instrument for the money! And if you can't decide if you're a guitar or a bass player, this is the best buy!

Simply brilliant

Spike on 29.03.2016

This was bought on a whim. The bass VI far exceeds my expectations and is one of my favourite guitars.
On top of this the quality of service was first rate. I cannot rate Musik-produktiv highly enough.
5 stars for the bass and for the suppliers. I will re use this company
