About 6 String Bass Guitars
6 string bass guitars are a modern, progressive advancement in the art of bass guitars. 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 basses 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 instrument 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!
