Do it!NICE!! I really want to get one of these!
See previous reply.Congrats bro! I saw one like this in my local shop. It looks awesome!
Amazing. Admittedly I don't have a bass amp nor do I really plan on using it as a bass, except in the rare recording instance. I've tried it through 3 of my amps and it kills through them all (Dr. Z Maz 38/2x10, JCM 2000/4x12, 2061x/4x12gb)wow! How does it play and sound?
I plan on using it for looping as well - I'm looking forward to testing it out!Very cool. I like the block inlays. Nice strap too, btw. Great color next to the Olympic White.
I have a 2006 CS version in the same color but dot neck, based on the 1962 model I believe. I think 2006 was the first year Fender offered the VI as a regular CS model. Mine also has a quarter sawn neck. The body has such a rich resonant sound that it is quite loud acoustically. I like it so much I sold my vintage VI to cash out at the top of the market. No regrets.
If you plan to use the VI for baritone guitar, the strangle switch (lowest switch) will be your friend. I use this a lot when playing over multiple looped layers of guitar. The Bass VI is such a versatile instrument. It also has a great beefy normal bass guitar sound if you are laying down a bass track. I plug mine direct into a Great River preamp and it sounds like my favorite 70s bass sounds.
