Six Advantages of a Fender Bass VI
The Bass VI makes for an easy transition for guitar players to pick up the bass and immediately be able to put their guitar knowledge to use. It doesn't lend itself to playing chords but players can add in bass lines in the way that they would normally play guitar leads and scales.
Why You Should Try a Baritone Guitar
The standard tuning for a baritone guitar is a perfect fourth lower than a typical guitar. So your low E is tuned down four steps to B. Your low A is tuned down to E and so forth with standard tuning being B E A D F# B. On a regular guitar, tuning this low would render your strings too loose to play but baritone guitars have a longer scale length which allows it to maintain a comfortable tension while keeping the tuning low.
This means that all the chord shapes and scales you already know are still usable on a baritone.
