Vintage 1962 Fender Bass VI Electric Bass Guitar

The Fender Bass VI electric bass guitar was something special. For all intents and purposes, it was the first in the Fender line of Jaguar model guitars and basses. The Fender Bass VI was released to compete with the Daneletro 6-string bass, which was released in 1956. As you can tell, there are a lot of design similarities between the Fender Bass VI and the Fender Jazzmaster. The biggest similarity was that the original Fender VI Bass, the Jaguar, and the Jazzmaster were all discontinued in 1975. The Bass VI never really caught on with any major bands or artists, and in the 1960s, many musicians began to use the Bass VI as a baritone guitar. Today, these Bass VI models are selling for $4,000-$6,000. Good luck finding one.
