I've been playing for a little over a year now, but I still spend a lot of time playing alone in my bedroom. I've been wanting to play around with piccolo tuning since I saw Zander Zon's videos on YouTube. I have a decent tax return coming this year and I was thinking about getting a bass to string with picc strings, but I'm wondering if there are any features or qualities that make a bass better or worse for high tuning. Things like active or passive electronics, fretted vs fretless, short scale or standard, single coil or humbucker(s), number of pickups, et cetera. I was thinking that a Stingray or Sterling would be a good choice, but if you'd suggest something different, I'm open to suggestions.
