    Let's see, since you didn't specify how thick the strings had to be, I'll go ahead and be a wise-apple ....
    Duane Allman
    Eric Clapton
    Jimi Hendrix
    Jimmy Page
    John Lennon
    .... not sure when to stop ....
    Alex Lifeson
    George Harrison
    Martin Barre

    Okay, I'll stop now.

    Anthony Jackson basically invented the modern 6 string bass.

    I say modern because we much previous to that did have something like the Danelectro and Fender Bass VI type instruments, which are basically more like long 30" scale guitars that are tuned down an octave.
