A few years back, I had an opportunity to play an original Fender Bass VI at Chicago Music Exchange. It was in great condition and I had more than a few minutes of fun playing it. They wanted $6,500 for it, but, with one exception at a guitar show, have never seen another of a re-issue. Now, I see that Fender has released a 2013 "pawnshop" edition, this one with the tremlo that I understand the re-issues did not have (???). I do believe that I am going to start saving up my change for one. Looks like GC is listing then at $800. I do hope that when I have the scratch, I will still be able to find one. Anyone else come across one of these "pawnshop editions" yet? http://www.fender.com/basses/bass_guitars/pawn-shop-bass-vi/.
