1962 FenderVI – Shoreline Gold Metallic

Fender released the “Bass VI” in 1961 and we have here the first variation of this baritone bass. Our example was produced in 1962 and is a truly special piece. It is shown here in its original Shoreline Gold finish with the early appointments of three Strat-style pickups with chrome-plated surrounds and three pickup selector switches. It showcases clay dot inlays and a non-matching headstock. This Fender VI also comes with its original strap, receipt, strings, and tremolo arm for its Floating Tremolo System. It also still has its original strings on it!

Overall Condition: 8.5, light marks and checking
