Longbow 2-String Bass Guitar

I've always wanted to learn to play the guitar, but all those strings are confusing! So perhaps this is the easier instrument: the Longbow "American Classic" 2 string bass!

(There is, of course, a one-string bass guitar from Japanese guitar maker Atlansia, the Dàn bâu from Vietnam and the Duxianqin from China)

Um, the bassitar played by Chris Ballew of the Presidents of the United States of America? Or Mark Sandman of Morphine? Or some European band whose name I don't remember, but remember the skinny-necked two-string bass in their crappy video? An idea that has been done before. Unless you're using a slide like Sandman, there's no real reason to limit yourself like this.
