      Squier Vintage Modified Bass VI (H99639)
Availability:  


The missing link between guitar and bass with authentic vintage-style and tons of low end.

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 that delivers excellent low end. Although it's called a six-string bass it has the feel of a baritone guitar without the extended neck. The strings aren't extra thick so it's a great transition from guitar. 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), tortoiseshell 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.

    As reviewed by Jonah Prall on 10/21/2013

    I was lucky enough to be one of the first to get the squier vintage modified bass VI. This bass sounds and feels exactly how you imagine it! One small word of advice remember to adjust the neck and bridge right away. My high e string snapped after the first time I tuned it. With the price being this low the bass is honestly a steal.I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a new bass experience that is truly like no other.

  • DEMAND a pro set-up BEFORE purchase

    As reviewed by WILLIAM on 5/31/2014

    Once a set-up was done, this thing is just plain FUN. Easy to play for either a bass or guitar player. The three PUs can be used in any combination as each has separate on/off switch, master Volume & Tone after that. All this leads to great voice variation. Mine was on back order for about 6 weeks. On arrival string buzz & lack of intonation rendered this instrument UNPLAYABLE. GC tech spent about 20 minutes with it and transformed it into a very playable (and FUN) instrument. I join other reviewers in really liking this instrument but hating the condition (playability) upon it's arrival from the factory. Demand a proper set-up before taking it out of the store!!

  • Loads of Fun to Play!

    As reviewed by JEFFREY TRIBBY on 4/22/2014

    I've had my 3-Tone Sunburst Bass-VI for a while now, and I'm having tons of fun playing it. By the way, this is a real bass and not a baritone. It tunes exactly like a guitar but one octave lower. It has the very same controls and switches that the original Bass-VI of the 1960s and 1970s had, so any combination of pickups is availible. I can get that old "spaghetti western" twang out of it or go to a very bass-y tone. Playing guitar chords on it is pretty cool, too - AND - it has a whammy bar on it like the original. My Bass-VI came out of the box already set up perfectly for me, the action and intonation spot on. I like to hook it through my Boss ME-50B or my old Fender Blender pedal, and it wails. I feel that I got a great value for the money. This bass could be a good transition for guitarists considering going for a bass.
