Would that work to make the guitar sound like an acoustic bass?

In my opinion, it may sound like shit. An acoustic bass has different frequency response and tone. Try it out.
err, you're talking about like an octave down pedal?

that doesn't even make an electric guitar sound like an electric bass in most cases
No, it would just sound low. You wouldn't have any of the richness in tone.

I was in a nu-metal band when I was 15. I hated the top 3 strings (G,B, and E). I wondered why guitars even had them.
