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 inch fingerboard radius (the originals were 7.25 inch), 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 inch 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, two black plastic control knobs (master volume, master tone), and vintage-style six-saddle bridge with non-locking floating vibrato.
