About 6 String Bass Guitars
6 string bass guitars are the natural advancement of the bass guitar, by adding an extra low and high string to the traditional 4 string bass, 6 string basses give you the ability to play more notes without altering the tuning or excessively shifting your hand up and down the neck. The result is an instrument that's ready to play all styles of music and can bring out the very best in your playing.
At guitarguitar we stock a selection of 6 string basses from brands including Ibanez, Mayones, Music Man, Squier and more. We stock a particularly large selection from Ibanez. This includes some extremely eye catching models such as the amazing Fanned fret SRFF806. 6 string bass guitars are normally tuned B-E-A-D-G-C, low to high, though a B is sometimes used at the top too.
As well as this type of bass, we also stock a few 'hybrid' instruments that lie somewhere between a guitar and a bass. The Squier Bass VI is a six string bass guitar tuned an octave lower than a standard electric guitar. This results in a low, twangy sound reminiscent of Duane Eddy and the Twin Peaks theme. These distinctive retro instruments are unlike guitars and bass and are lots of fun to play!
