A short video of Heath explaining some things about his bass guitar in Japanese, and playing a tune. But why does it sound like a guitar?

Ok, so who can tell me why that sounds like a guitar and not a bass?

It actually sounds like a bass to me, he's just playing it clean without any distortion.

And he's playing close to the guitar body.  Notes on that end are going to be higher octaves or higher on the scale than notes played in the center of the neck or up further near the headstock.

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone
