https://bit.ly/3yeonnk | Have YOU ever played a Bass VI? Designed by Fender, it debuted in 1961 as an instrument that might split the difference between guitar and bass, for both guitar and bass players alike, offering a unique playing experience in standard bass tuning (one octave down from a guitar), but with closer string-spacing and 30” scale-length.

While the original vintage editions were discontinued by Fender in 1975, they’re now available once again from Fender Custom Shop in CME’s BASSment. Or, you can snag one of our CME Exclusive options—like Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Bass VI in Walnut—for under $600! Only at Chicago Music Exchange!

https://bit.ly/2Pcr6b1 | Equipped with a factory-installed uncovered Gibson P-90 between the soundhole and neck, Gibson’s J-160E model, like this vintage 1956 edition, debuted as the brand’s first full-bodied slope-shouldered dreadnought model, putting it among Gibson’s first-ever acoustic-electric flattops—second only to the smaller-bodied CF-100E release in 1950, which featured a Florentine cutaway.

Bonus points if you can name which two among the Fab Four made these models famous! Let us know in the comments!

https://bit.ly/4cCZXU0 | Regarding delay pedals, what’s your preference—the signal degradation you can achieve with an analog, bucket-brigade delay, like the EHX Memory Toy? Or, the pristinely clean, aurally evanescent tones of a digital device like the Boss DD-T3? CME Video Specialist Evan Skorepa compares these two classic delay examples, so you can both side-by-side and decide which you like better for yourself!
