*later on he says it was a Baritone, rather than a Bass VI

in 1981? I don't think so. he would've been able to buy an old fender bass VI- they stopped making them in 1974-5. there weren't japanese copies of them, nor had fender-japan begun reissues.
if it was a fender, it was a bass VI. if it was a baritone, it wasn't a fender.

He wasn't buying it- he was hiring it. He proceeds to say he then snapped all the strings trying to tune it as he didn't know there was a difference and so had to adapt the 6 string bass parts to play them on the Yamaha 4-string.

It wouldn't be the only thing in his books of questionable veracity.
