  1. What is the unique wiring of the original Fender Bass VI, and does the Schecter version represent it?

  2. what would your setup be for a song like faith?
    any particular effects or amps with the VI? and what pickup selection and tone/volume settings would you use on the song.

    1. Very interesting article, thanks for sharing that. Way back when I learning to be a musician ( of sorts), Killing an Arab was my first case study in "non-traditional" scales. That is, non-traditional to white guys like me raised on pop/rock/etc. in the western word. This brings me back to my much younger self. Thanks again !
