    I was just thinking one of these dropped down to B would sound absolutely monstrous paired up with a seven-string.

    Doug Pinnick used a Hamer 12 string bass a lot on the earlier King's X stuff and yes it sounded massive. He biamped his rig if I recall correctly he used gutiar amps for the high end and bass amps for the low stuff. It effectively gave King's X another rhythm guitar player.
