Question by Fred: How do bass guitar pickups sound with electric guitar strings?
This is really just out of curiosity that me and a friend have been wondering. Not such as taking a bass pickup and slapping it on a guitar. More like taking a guitar and adding a bass bridge, or nut made for guitar string but with only four slots like a bass, and then stringing in only four strings. I love playion guitar more, but i love bass guitar tone. Im just wondering if this could be a good idea, bad idea, or could go either way.
Answer by Rick
It sounds muddy and twangy at the same time.
Many Bass players are forced to use a guitar string for back up if they dont have a bass string. Its not that good of a mix.
