A Reissue of a Classic with Updated Features
The original '61-'75 vintage modified bass VI provided a distinctive low end that featured in a number of renown bands, from The Beatles to The Cure. This Squier reissue of the Bass VI is distinguished from the original by its comfortable "modern C" shaped neck and 9.5" fingerboard radius, as opposed to the original's 7.25". Three custom jaguar pickups provide the bass with its distinguished sound, while the vintage-style six-saddle bridge features a non-locking floating vibrato, which is not commonly found on a bass, to create incredible pitch shifting effects.
Custom Single-Coil Jaguar Pickups
The Vintage Modified bass boasts three custom Jaguar single-coil pickups with notched "claw" shielding rings, with the middle pickup featuring a reverse-wound reverse-polarity setup to eliminate any unwanted hum. Tree two-position slider switches operate as on/off switches for each pickup, while the fourth switch operates the bass-cut "strangle" tone circuit.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
