For sale. (had a Valentine's discount to 2600 so probably room for an offer).
I've said before, I really quite like this one! Someone's changed its pickups since its last appearance on this thread, though. It looked better before with the full on EMG style humbucker.

I kinda like that 70's van / Corvus Mustang. I think I'd let it keep on flying it's freak flag.

I almost bought this one as a restoration project, but that neck pocket gap is just nasty. Too many red flags.

For me, it was the crack on the edge of the body near the rhythm controls - and no pictures of what's under the pickguard. Could be some super-scary routing under there!

Funny..after Will's "un-Voxing a Jazzmaster" thread, I now look at guitars like the Bass VI above & think "Pffft..no big deal :) !

Interesting use of the mute, too..not only backwards, but looks like they trimmed the 'lip' off it..a real shame, vintage VI mutes are rare as
hen's teeth.

The fact that it’s pictured on a workbench gives me hope that this is the start of a restoration project?
