I really want a bass VI, especially one with the high and low pass filters that the fender/squiers have. Right now I'm thinking my best option is to get a Squier Bass VI and play it upside, and just restring lefty flipping the nut. If anyone has any better ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

Here's a thread from last December about possibly converting a regular guitar or a shortscale 4-string to a Bass VI. It also lists some options for readily available Bass VI-style guitars. Maybe this helps! :)

Edit: might as well post the actual link :oops:

I wish Squier would cut the crap and just offer a lefty Bass VI already.

You can build one at Warmoth.

Yeah, and there are so many options to choose from, but if you want a pickguard on it, you will have to drill the holes yourself. I asked Warmoth about this, and they said it is part of their agreement with Fender as a "replacement parts vendor".

I only bring this up so that others are aware, because I do not trust myself to drill a dozen holes into an expensive guitar body.
