The Bass Guitar is a weapon in Dead Rising. It is a guitar that is played by the thumb and forefinger. It has a "sunburst" design and has a black pick guard.

When swung, this guitar can clear a large area in front of Frank, but unfortunately he needs a second or two to recover after whacking some zombies.

There are four types of guitars:

  1. Bass Guitar,
  2. Acoustic Guitar, and
  3. two electric guitars.

The acoustic guitar may cause more damage, while the electric guitar is a bit faster as its recovery time is about half of the Acoustic's.

While all of the guitars are effectively the same, each type has a different set of animations for their attacks. The Acoustic Guitar has sort of a "stabbing" motion in front of Frank.[1]


  • Main: Tap the X button to swing the bass guitar. Tap the X/Square button in succession to perform a three hit combo, by swinging the bass guitar right, left, then slamming it down.
  • Alternate: Hold down the X to slam the bass guitar down.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Template:Rtrigger trigger to enter aim mode and Tap X/Square to throw the bass guitar.


  • When the bass guitar hits a target, it will emit music.
  • It is similar to the Fender P-bass.
  • Despite being a bass guitar, it sounds identical to the Stratocaster Electric guitar .
