Technically my second post, but oh well, rules meant to be broken and all that.... I’ve played bass steadily for 25+ years, mostly noisy punk rock, and have dipped my toe into the 6 string realm now and again. I recently scored an EHX Pitch Fork for my bass on a whim, found it more useful than I expected, and then had a “Eureka” moment. The PF tracks exceptionally well, all things considered, so how would a regular guitar sound pitched down to bass levels, with a little grind tossed on top? At our last practice I plugged my guitar player’s backup SG into my rig and played a couple of our songs with it and it legit sounded pretty great. So now I had this weird back up “guitarbass” idea in my head. I went home, dug into the old internet rabbit hole, and found myself a reasonably priced used Chris Shifflett Tele with upgraded pickups, decided to get a decent combo at the local pawn shop for playing regular straight up guitar stuff, and have been practicing my bass parts and teaching myself some of our guitar parts just for the hell of it. Now we need to book some shows so I can watch the looks of confusion when I pull out the “definitely not a bass but it sure sounds like one.” I always love the red headed stepchild—I’ll always pick a Tele over a Strat, SG over Les Paul, a Jazz over a P. Why be normal?
