A vintage style baritone guitar for lower tuning and deep, warm tone.

Players continue to praise the Pawn Shop Series for evoking the more eccentric Fender creations of the mid-'60s to mid-'70s while delivering thoroughly modern sound and quality with a wealth of various Fender elements. New for 2013, the Pawn Shop Series introduces yet another pleasingly unconventional assortment of "guitars that never were but should have been," in which new models take the stage and long-vanished classics return in modern form.

The Pawn Shop Bass VI marks the revamped return of a historic Fender instrument, the seldom-seen Fender Bass Guitar (also known as the Bass VI) of 1961-1975. This updated version of the baritone classic features the traditional short scale (30") and is armed with Special Design Hot Jaguar single-coil neck and middle pickups and a powerful JZHB humbucking bridge pickup.

Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck with 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switching, four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard (Three-color Sunburst and Black models) and three-ply parchment pickguard (Candy Apple Red model), two Jazz Bass control knobs (volume, tone), vintage-style adjustable six-saddle bridge with "floating" tremolo tailpiece, and vintage-style tuners.

Includes gig bag.

  • Not for everyone

    As reviewed by john jansen on 5/28/2013

    The string spacing and 30" scale may appeal to guitar players looking to double on bass. And that's the ONLY rub. Build quality was excellent. The tone? It's blowing people away through a variety of amps. Personally, I play it through both bass and guitar amps depending on the situation. It "sits" perfectly in a variety of styles from Rockabilly to Electronica. It may take a while to get used to the string spacing, but I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

  • It's a bass that plays like a guitar

    As reviewed by Art Blevins on 12/22/2013

    This is not a baritone guitar (as advertised) but a true bass guitar. I've been a guitar player and a bass player for over 30 years with 13 studio CDs on my resume. What I love about this instrument is the tight spacing of the strings. What that means as a bass player is that chords are MUCH easier to play. My current band is a progressive rock outfit, and we expect as much chordal contributions from the bass as we do every other instrument. This BASS instrument will help you elevate your bass contribution from single root-note runs into chordal epiphany. Every bass player should have one of these instruments in the arsenal.

    As reviewed by Dan Hargrove on 4/24/2014

    Just took delivery on mine. after a few tweaks (truss rod)and strings, I love this axe!! been playing Gibson Les Paul basses for 40 years... I had the chance to play a 70's issue back in the day, and now I have one that completes my collection.. If you are looking for something truly unique and worth every dollar, get one before it's gone.....; Hear the Thunder...Rock your As**s!
