The only photo I have taken:


Feels nice, but I haven't plugged it in. I'll switching parts out in the near future.
This makes me instantly regret not buying one.

Mine is traveling from Chicago to LA. I can’t say for sure but I think most if not all of the ones I’ve seen on Reddit and Instagram so far have come from CME.

Mine came in from CME last week. It's a looker. It is going to need shimmed and I'm going to need to get motivated to pull it apart.

I ordered mine from CME and have been obsessively checking for any kind of tracking info to show up on my order but nothing yet :/

I’m in Houston

In case it helps anyone predict arrival: pre-ordered from CME in July, shipped 12/1. Never played a VI so I'm excited.

I ordered mine in mid-May and it shipped on Thursday (Dec 2), I don't think order date has anything to do with shipping date, for better or worse. Either way, I'm excited, too! I'm going to be converting it to a baritone.

Mine was supposed to arrive yesterday but tracking updated and the new delivery date is Tuesday :-/

How are the CV Bass VI bridges? Worth the $$$ + wait for a Staytrem or good enough as is?

They're basically mustang bridges. Not sure if it's worth the upgrade or not, yet.

I just registered to the forum because I ordered one of these back in August and received it today—my first offset guitar, and my first bass!

I’ll be keeping an eye on this thread to see how people like theirs and if folks decide on mods that turn out well. I’ve only played mine for about thirty minutes and have been having a blast. Inaugurated it with “Helter Skelter” and “Back in the Saddle.”

their shape and specs are nearly identical to the Am Pro bridge, but with what's likely a zinc alloy in the saddles. They largely function the same, although a discerning listener might describe the Am Pro bridge as being a bit brighter.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new VI! I think you’ll find there’s all kinds of knowledge on this forum about the bass VI as well as other offsets. Enjoy.
