1962 FenderVI – Roman Red

This 1962 Fender VI is pictured here in its original and rare Roman Red finish with a matching headstock! This special ordered color was used from about 1959-62. We have had quite a few Fenders in this color come through our store. It is lighter and brighter in hue than Dakota Red, but still darker than Fiesta Red. This was a Corvette color, also available in the same years. This beauty is set up with flats to really help bring out the amazing mid and low tones of this bass. Overall there is some playwear here and there, but this bass remains fully original with a great sound and look! 

Overall Condition:  7.5, neck wear and general body wear brings this a couple clicks from a perfect 10
