6-string electric bass guitar from Vintage Modified series that delivers excellent low end – the welcome return of a long-vanished Fender classic in the deeply satisfying form. Although it is called a six-string bass it has the feel of a baritone guitar without the extended neck. The strings are not extra thick so it is 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 instrument delivers authentically vintage-style look and tone, with a few modern touches such as a comfortable ''modern C'' neck profile and 241mm fingerboard radius, 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 762mm scale (standard tuning one octave lower than a guitar), basswood body and maple neck fitted with 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. Olympic White colour design.
