bass is a more difficult instrument to master than a guitar
also, guitarists are as common as muck. have a look through the "wanted" pages in any music literature - bassists and drummers are ALWAYS in demand.
Not sure I agree with you there. I think they are technically the same instrument. The bass just happens to have fatter strings!
Also, the bass is not for solo playing, while you can do a sing-along with just a guitar.
I read in one of my books about this guitarist who switched to bass only because his fingers were too long! (In my case, my fingers are too short!)
I think that the reason bassists are in shorter supply is that you hardly have a song without a bass in it, while the keyboard synths can usually stand in for the guitar.
You notice guitar playing by its presence, in the case of bass, you just expect it to be there, and would be more likely to notice if it wasn't.
BTW. is it worth separating the acoustic guitar from electric in the poll? I'm not too fond of the electric
