No, not those ugly monstrosities you see Les Claypool play, I mean the cool tic-tac basses tuned like a guitar, but an octave lower (Fender VI, Danelectro Six String Bass). Anyways, I need some ideas as far as amps (I want a warm, midrange sound... maybe running a guitar and bass amp at the same time?) and effects (distortion, delays, phases, etc.) go, and I'm wondering how practical it is. My playing style won't change all that much because I've always played pretty high up on the neck, and the twang won't bother me because I don't like a lot of bottom end in my sound. I was thinking starting off with a Danelectro Six String Bass, then moving up to a warmoth... i was considering a reissue Fender VI, but they look kind of expensive. Opinions?
