I've recently had a weird idea of setting up a 5 string bass in such a way that it will produce a more guitar-like tone, and essentially become an enormous 5 string baritone guitar. I think by replacing the bridge pickup with an 8 string pickup like an EMG or a Lace Deathbar, and by using thinner gauge strings, you could get a bass to have a tonality more like an eight or nine string guitar. My question is this: If I were to tune a five string to C-F-Bb-Eb-Ab (i.e. one half step above normal 5 string tuning), with the super light strings, played through the bridge pickup as mentioned into a high gain amp, would a regular guitar cab be capable of reproducing the lowest note in a sonically pleasing way? Would running such an instrument through a guitar cab even be safe? Or would a bass cab be a better fit, given that it is still technically a bass? If I do this I'll probably use a modeler anyway, but I was just wondered if it could work with a real guitar amp and cab.
