So I got my Christmas present early. I had originally thought about getting one of the pink CV Jazzmasters..but then thought fuck it I want a Bass Vi because its basically a daddy Jaguar and I am all about Jags.



It needs a setup and bigger strings. But its actually super nice.

More as I get to know it.

Ace. I've got the white VM one (coincidentally a Christmas present from Mrs BB a few years back) and it's great fun.

I bought some La Bellas for it (and a Staytrem bridge) as the stock low E was too floppy. Looks like Fender do a thicker gauge set now though, which are much cheaper.

Although I guess you're all about the fancy flatwounds these days...

I've always had fun monkeying around on these but part of my knows I wouldn't know what to play if I ever owned one.

Royal Blood riffz?

Looks fabulous though

Of course! Wink totally would of found a used white VM if it wasn't for the need of Andertons credit. Laughing

When I had mine it had fancy flatwounds, which I loved, a Staytrem bridge and a vintage trem. Lots of fun.

I once recorded a band where the bassist used a VI and played it fingerstyle. Trying to play Geezer Butler style runs, and stuff like that. It sounded like total shit. As long as you don’t do that, I reckon you’re golden.

Looks pretty.

Ah fucks sake squier!


I will just have to do what I do on guitar. Repetitive single notes played randomly through lots of pedals with the occasional power chord!

Wicked! We can finally form that surf band now that we'll match in 'Big Cook, Little Cook' fashion.



Funnily enough, I was informing my gf that Bass VIs existed a few days ago (pure mansplaining), as she really likes doing chordy stuff on her bass, she seemed super into it.

Oh baby, I loved mine. Staytrem bridge is money well spent, I upgraded the trem because I demand an American trem assembly, but this was mainly unnecessary. More fun tuned A-A as a baritone, in my opinion: you can play chords then, and they rumble and shake. They flub out a bit E-E.

Also fuck Glen Campbell, homophobic arsehole. Hijacking this corder of the thread Roebore style to post superior versions of Wiichita Lineman.
