1961 Fender Bass VI (Serial Number 70174)
Original Sixties Fender Bass VI’s are not very common here in Australia. I found this one in a guitar shop on Coogee Bay Road (not far from where I was living) and the shop’s owner had just returned from the US with this instrument.
This is a very early example of this model and features 3 slider switches. It’s great sounding and gets used often on recordings.
Famous users include Jet Harris and Jack Bruce (Cream).
