Eastwood Guitars Now Shipping Sidejack VI Bass Guitar

Taking a cue from Fender’s Bass VI from the ’60s, Eastwood has unveiled the Sidejack VI: a 6-string, 30˝ scale bass guitar. Similar to a guitar, the bass is tuned E to E, but it vastly improves on the guitar concept by taking it down an octave.

Available in Vintage Cream and Metallic Blue finishes, the bass is built with a bound solid basswood body and a set maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. While most basses in this style have a stop tail and humbuckers, the Sidejack VI sports a Fender-style tremolo and a pair of vintage EW P-90 pickups. The controls are Volume and Tone knobs with a 3-way pickup selector.

The Eastwood Sidejack VI is shipping now with a street price of around $649. For more info, visit the Eastwood Guitars website.
