Are You Sure It's A Bass?
Absolutely positive. Whilst the Squier Vintage Modified Bass VI may resemble a vintage 6-stringed guitar, albeit with a slightly longer neck, it's most certainly still a bass.
The strings on this guitar are tuned E to E, but a whole octave below standard guitar tuning - or an octave above a standard bass. This results in a bass that can be played like a guitar - in other words you can play full chords, use a pick, play melody lines etc - just in a lower register.
The electronics on the Squier VM Bass VI are very similar to those you'd find on a vintage Jaguar guitar. In fact, the pickups themselves are Jaguar single coils - with the middle pickup being Reverse Wound, Reverse Polarity.
This results in a versatile, articulate range of sounds, with an On/Off switch for each pickup, and a Tone Control Slider switch to give that classic Jaguar "Strangle" tone.
Unfortunately, Squier no longer manufacture Vintage Modified instruments, so this awesome Bass VI in particular is only available whilst stocks last. If you'd like to query the availability of this bass, please contact our Online Sales Team directly.
