Sidejack VI - A 6 String Bass from Eastwood
Eastwood have borrowed the design of the Sidejack VI from the 1960s Fender Bass VI.
The retro styling doesn't end there - they also leaned on elements of Mosrite when styling the body.
The Sidejack VI sports the same E to E tuning of a regular 6 string guitar, but one octave down.
Other 6-string basses are mostly stop tail with humbuckers. The Sidejack Bass VI is uniquely features a tremolo tail and Vintage EW P-90 pickups making it suitable for solo and rhythm playing.
The body is made from Solid Basswood, and the neck from Maple, with the fingerboard being Rosewood.
It has a set 30” scale neck with a width of 1 5/8" at the nut.
It comes in Metallic Blue and Vintage Cream (pictured).
“The Bass VI has always had a large following and we have been planning the Eastwood Sidejack VI for years" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "and it was worth the wait, this puppy is bang on and the whammy bar makes it that much more fun to play. So if you’re planning on coming to the Dallas Guitar Show in April drop by our booth to check it out.”
The suggested retail price is $829 and it's expected to have a street price of $649.
