    to be played by a guitarist that needs to sub for the bassplayer temporarily busy with keyboards;

    to be played by a bass player just seeking for another "flavor"

    to be played by somebody that likes a bass/guitar like that (a baritone guitar).

    This thing has given me some serious GAS. For real.... Im usually immune, but a VI gives me shivers....

    Think outside the box. Imagine new music!

    I review a different BassVI here, but you get a good idea of how I use it + theres even an in-action performance video.

    BassVI's are fun, entirely viable bass instruments & can fill a unique role!

    Paul McCartney used one, Jack Bruce used one, they're not new they have just been off the radar for a few decades.

    Can one be strung beadgc?

    Paul never used one. John and George used one.

    It could. The blacktop Telecaster baritone is a shorter scale & handles a B quite nicely.
