The Bass 6

Posted by glassonion on April 29, 2006

I am obsessed with the Fender Bass VI. More accurately, the Schecter Hellcat VI which is the much less expensive knock off.

Essentially it's not a bass or a guitar. It's pretty much both. It's technically a bass but it's more like a deeper baritone guitar. The Cure use it a lot for melodic lead lines (Picture Of You, High, etc..). Lennon used one while recording Let It Be when he was tasked with the bass parts while Paul played keys. I am seriously considering purchasing one and starting a one man musical project. The Bass VI, drums, keys. No traditional guitar or bass.

Of course this isn't the most interesting post. But I am taking WordPress for a spin. I think I like it.
