I have an Ibanez electric guitar that I set up as a Baritone guitar with the top E string tuned to a low A - guitar tuned to A instead of E. I was wondering if I could actually put a set of Ernie Ball Slinky 6 string bass set of stings on it and tune it to be used as a short scale bass guitar? This set of strings gauges are: .090 .074 .054 .042 .030 .020W Now the low .090 string is actually smaller than a standard low E on a bass, as I am remembering them being at somewhere around .105?? A friend of mine hit me up to play bass for a project for a unspecified period of time - or maybe even for permanent. These guys have an incredible set list that seems like more fun than I have had in many years. And I have always loved playing bass anyway, as my ear and feel for that instrument is actually remarkable for being a lead guitarist all these years. My experience as a drummer in the past probably helps as well.

Are the added two strings from the standard 4 string config added as one above the low E and one below the bottom/smallest string G?
