R: bass sound with guitar

You could try that, the midi fretless sound is not that good, but it is
usable. I had the same problem and pretty much solved it by using a 7 
guitar with  thick flatwound strings (011-056), mixing a bit of octaver (in
parallel) and playing fingerstile. Another solution (a tad pricier) could 
getting a warr guitar (or austin douglas) or a double neck (I think
danelectro builds a doubleneck with guitar and bass necks).
Some Boss and Roland guitar processors (Vf-1 etc...) also have a fretless
emulator (they call it de-fretter, I think, I tried it sometime ago, but
wasn't really impressed by the result)
