Product Description

Fender have done it again! The new Vintera II series has built upon the success of the first Vintera launch, giving you accurate recreations of timeless, classic electric guitars from the golden eras of Fender’s history, with a sprinkle of contemporary comforts. The new Vintera II’s bring you more accurate and detailed vintage specifications, with the use of Rosewood fretboards on selected models, era specific pickups, and the addition of new guitars to the range.

The use of more traditional, vintage-style components in the Vintera II series makes them one of the most era specific guitars Fender have made. This puts the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s eras in your hands for you to wield a stylish, vintage sounding, and an authentic feeling electric guitar! The Vintera II series pays tribute to the innovatively designed instruments that defined decades of music.

‘60s Fender Bass VI

New to the Vintera series, Fender have created a ‘60s vintage-styled Bass VI for those that are looking for something different from their bass guitar. The Vintera II Bass VI incorporates all the same vintage love and attention featured throughout the rest of the guitars in the series. Although it features 6 strings, this is bass guitar, with a shorter scale than most. The famously comfortable “C” shape neck provides great support and familiarity to playing this unique instrument. The special gauge made for this bass guitar allows you to be more articulate with your playing that presents a distinctive tone.

A trio of vintage-style ‘60s single coil pickups make this bass sing, producing a surprising bright, vibrant, yet warm and natural sounding tones that would generally find on an electric guitar. The beauty of these vintage voiced pickups gives you more scope to experiment and find new tones you wouldn’t find one large scale basses. Utilising Fender’s floating tremolo (predominately found on Jazzmasters) you can be more expressive with vibrato by diving into each note you play whilst maintaining superb tuning stability. The Vintera II Bass VI is perfect for any player wanting to try a new sonic realm that is in keeping with the vintage specifications of the original bass guitar introduced back in the mid- ‘60s.
