There IS a BASS guitar. It’s a six string guitear, played the same as a regular 6 string, but an octave(?) lower. A Spanish/Mexican instrument used in traditional music.
Not seeing this as an oxymoron… there is an instruemnt based on the classic guitar shape but with four strings commonly called a “Bass Guitar”, it’s more accurately an “Electric Bass” but since it departs from the form of the upright bass, the “guitar” tag works for it too. There’s also a Baritone Guitar, (made famous by Danelectro), where the six-string neck is placed on a bass body and it’s tuned an octave lower… a very popular instrument in 60′s westerns and surf music.
