Bass VI Journeyman Relic®
Bass VI Journeyman Relic®, Rosewood Fingerboard, Vintage White
Model Number: 9235001603
The Bass VI Journeyman Relic is a faithful recreation of the original Fender six-string bass. Resembling a larger-scale Jaguar, this sleek 30”-scale-length bass has some very distinct tonal and playing qualities, which is why it has long been a secret weapon in the studio for many. This version is much like the original, but with a couple modified upgrades. The two-piece select alder body has a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, while the quartersawn maple neck has a ’60s-style “oval C” profile, 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard, and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets.
Custom Shop ’62 Jaguar pickups produce a rare articulate tone and are wired to four slide switches (on/off for each pickup and a series/parallel switch). Other features include a four-ply brown shell pickguard, vintage-style bridge and “floating” tremolo tailpiece, vintage-style tuning machines, and bone nut. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
