Bass VI

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by TheBassmaster27, Aug 31, 2018.

  1. I was wondering, who actually owns one of these, and what they do with them. I've seen them before, but I was wondering if buying one is worth it, or if it's only useful for covering back in the saddle by aerosmith, and spanked by Van Halen(technically that was a double neck, but one, you probably can find one of those, and two, in a multi guitar player situation, you don't need one.)

    I love my Squire bass VI, I did have to do the usual mods, new electrics/bridge/labella strings to it to get the sound I wanted ... But I use it all the time to double track my EB0. With the tone down all the way it can sound very nice. Get one!
