The Bass VI Is Back, Pawn Shop Style!
The Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI is descended from the historic Bass VI (1961-1975) that was embraced by guitar and bass luminaries alike. Jack Bruce played one in the early days of Cream. George Harrison sported one in the Beatles' "Hey Jude" video. Fender has updated the baritone classic with Special Design Hot Jaguar single-coil neck and middle pickups and a beastly JZHB humbucker, and routed the potent elixir through a versatile 5-way switch. If you want unique textures for your music, Fender's Pawn Shop Bass VI will do the trick.Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI at a Glance:
