Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Relic Bass VI, Aged Dakota Red

For over 30 years the extraordinarily talented luthiers of the Fender Custom Shop have been providing the most illustrious guitar players of their day with their dream instruments.

Originally debuted in 1961 as a six-string bass, the Bass VI has been a “secret weapon” in the arsenals of top producers seeking to add depth and sonic glue to their recordings. Beloved by both guitarists and bassists, the Bass VI earned its place in the mix, lending endless inspiration on demand. Complete with a gently aged Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish, this six-string radiates with an aura of a well-beloved asset with patent novelty.

Unique features on this vintage-inspired Bass VI include: Bass VI “C”-shaped maple neck profile with a 7.25”-radius rosewood fingerboard, Bass VI wiring, 3 Jaguar® single-coil pickups, Jag/Jazz adjustable bridge with threaded steel saddles and a tortoise shell pickguard for timeless aesthetic.

Additional appointments include 22 6105 frets, advanced switching allowing for many different tones, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with nylon spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
