Squier Vintage Modified Bass VI
Chinese manufacturing, but quality, very high quality.
Squier VI is neither more nor less than a Fender VI for cheap build quality all simply perfect.


At first glance, this is the total rout, because it is not low and it's not a guitar. Good thing I'm not really a guitarist and a bassist not really. Stringed instruments attracts me what they are. And it's been over twenty years since I flit between the two instruments.
The Fender VI is an attempt to crossover aborted because too specific, too special.
But the instrument is good, it was just too few musicians were ready to let go snippets of playing techniques so dearly won. It is obvious that this instrument covers a limited number of musicians. And known to the Fender VI users are always funny bird, you would give me.


The adjustment of the instrument is conceptualized based on your game and upstream. This famous rope MI becomes an issue in itself. And you will find the game proper rope.
The three microphones are excellent and the desired frequencies become easily accessible thanks to the selector and the tone knob.
Used on a large Ampeg bass and guitar on Fenders different powers. Squier VI proved to me as an amazing guitar with a velvety and subtlety in the game arpeggiated chords.
Frequencies generated call to consider additional effects. In my case the chorus and phaser which hitherto seemed unnecessary to my game
Short through this hybrid instrument I found a guitar more than bass. But little easily imagine a musician or a (detached) with smaller or more nimble than mine lying across the Squier Bass VI dreams hands.


Impeccable quality of workmanship, and I'm a big painful believe me.
Squier VI is a proof of knowledge of the Chinese factory Fender. This remains a particular instrument for particular people. And for how long this model will be available from Squier you it?

Squier Vintage Modified Bass VI
Made in Indonesia ... the new Eldorado for making guitars at low cost?
For the rest of the features, for what I know, it sticks closely to the original model, vintage and rare for Fender ... or a hybrid instrument: bass and / or guitar or more precisely, a "shortscale" low paid as such, but with two extra strings in the treble.
3 pickups like "Jaguar" each controlled by a switch "on / off", a volume and overall tone.
A fourth switch activates a high-pass filter that cuts the lower frequencies.


Handle very nice touches flatter than the original model ...
It's just quite confusing at first, to play bass on a close to a guitar neck (which is so far not seen the pitch and pulling the strings ...) configuration, confusing, but also very inspiring!
For the rest, the guitar is stable, does not sting the nose is reasonably heavy ... no complaints!
The moderate use of open pick unprecedented opportunity ... and while it remains moderate, no worry of désacordage obvious.

Game almost obligatory pick ... even if "finger", it's still playable.


Tested at low volume on a small bass amp, it sounds very good ... Fairly clear but not at all devoid of bass sounds, a beautiful sustain ... Really extremely and pleasantly surprising for an instrument in this price range.
My favorite position is neck pickup + pickup, tone slightly "closed" ... It is dynamic and musical sounds good vintage ... I am less "fan" of the micro environment ... at least I have not yet found its usefulness.


Notice hot after spending "a few hours" above ... primarily to adjust!
The first notes were a little scares me out of the box: low E string hard to give as much too soft, round not just in the very acute, generalized frieze ...

After reassembling the bridge a few millimeters, set the curvature of the handle (slightly), set the harmonics, the height of microphones and changed the low E string decidedly too soft (passing on a draft of 95 instead of 84 origin), we begin to see the possibilities of the beast!

This is necessarily the obvious consideration of low cost: savings were not made on the finishes (excellent!), Electronics (more than adequate), or a priori wood (maple neck nicely grained rosewood the very dense and homogeneous button) and the overall aesthetics (flawless chrome, nickel binding handle, perfect polish!) but the overall setting (a bit tricky for the old design).

Overall, after a good close control and this damn rope mid change, a very beautiful and unusual case and low and inspiring!

Beware, however, the strings ... difficult to find because it is necessary and a suitable pulling length shortscale but not too much as the anchor rope is far enough from the bridge and on the other side of the handle, the mechanics are more mechanical guitar as mechanical Low ... A good puzzle so!
