fender says this is a 6 string bass, but then agian they call it a baritone guitar, why is this, cause it deffiently dosen't appear to be a six string bass, so are baritone guitars same as a bass in a way?

and on a second note anyone know what all the switches do, are they coil taps?

It's a normal guitar body, but the strings are tuned an octave lower than usual (the same octave as a bass guitar). It's essentially a short scale bass.

Well by the looks of it, and the short description its a baritone guitar, which is essentially a 7 string without the high e string, generally its tuned B E A D G B, but often youll find that the people who play them tune them down further
think of it as if a guitar and bass had sex, and this is there offsrping

I tried to imagine that but for some reason Bootsy Collins stopped it in protest, that was a weird daydream.
