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), tortoise shell 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. Case not included.

Comments about Remo Black Suede Emperor Drum Head:

When I saw the price for this guy I couldn't believe it. Fender's rare missing link from the early to mid 70s in all of its vintage styled glory for a bargain price. Don't let the price fool you, this piece's build quality is superb and offers an original style jazzmaster/jaguar style bridge. This is too much instrument for the price.

        Comments about Remo Black Suede Emperor Drum Head:

        The "claw" shields on the Jaguar single-coil pickups make them exceptionally quiet when used individually, but when the bridge or neck pickup is combined with the reverse wound, reverse polarity middle pickup, whisper quiet humbucking operation is achieved.
