A modest adventurer from the beginning, this instrument charted new territory during its initial run from 1961 to 1975. Now the Classic Vibe series brings the Bass VI into the Squier line up. Featuring a unique Fender design, an innovative melding of bass and guitar physique, and triple alnico single-coil pickups with slide switches, this bass is something to behold. This is a great choice for the player that wants an affordable instrument that can straddle the guitar and bass world with ease.

Unique Fender Design
Fender's Bass VI is a unique hybrid sporting a six-string guitar-type build, lowered an octave for a bassy sound. The curvy, off-set body of this Squier version of the Bass VI is cut from poplar, into a shape near to that of a Jaguar. The body is draped in a sleek gloss polyurethane finish. The maple neck of this retro-cool bass is shaped into a "C" and sports cream neck binding. It's also got period-correct headstock markings and vintage-style tuners.

Innovative Melding of Bass and Guitar Build
In the early '60s, Fender dared to listen to those free-thinking musicians who asked "Can't we just put bass strings on a guitar for lower tone with guitar playability?" Why yes, you can. Squier's version of the Bass VI sports a 30" scale length, somewhere between the customary 34" of their basses and 25.5" of their guitars. It's strung with Fender nickel-plated steel strings with gauges from .024 all the way up to .084. It's got a 6-saddle vintage-style bridge with non-locking floating vibrato to keep those deep, powerful strings in place as you strum, pluck, and pick them in whatever way suits your playing style.

Triple Alnico Single-Coil Pickups with Slide Switches
This Classic Vibe Bass VI showcases three Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups, specially made to capture the unique low-end sound from this 6-string bass. To adjust and shape your tone, there are 3-on/off slide switches for each pickup, so you can choose the combination that you love the most. The fourth switch is a 2-position "Strangle" switch which acts as a bass-cut for when you want to significantly modify your tone and achieve a little more guitar-esque sound. There are also two knobs for the master volume and tone.
