Fender’s Pawn Shop Bass VI


Fender’s Pawn Shop Bass VI is easily the most accessible recreation of the historic bass to hit the street. In its run from 1961 to 1975, the original Bass VI six-string, E-to-E baritone guitar found favor in the hands of Jack Bruce, George Harrison, and others looking to add exciting textures to their music. In that same spirit, Fender loaded the Pawn Shop Bass VI with a pair of Special Design Hot Jaguar single-coil and a beefy JZHB humbucker at the bridge. Between these pickups, it’s easy to dial in an incredibly wide range of tone. Any guitarist or bass player seeking the elusive tic-tac bass sound is sure to love this.
