I'm looking for something different than a bass to use in my band. I was thinking a keyboard, then a cello and now I'm considering a baritone guitar. I'm not looking to start a fight about whether such a thing is a "bass" or not, frankly, I don't give a crap. But what I would like to know is if you can use an e-bow on it or are the strings too thick? Also, any other techniques you can do on it that you can't do on a regular bass?
