If anything I think a Rhodes Bass tone would be too fat and roundy, and you'd want a way to add a brighter pick-like attack. And of course getting close to his phrasing and style will be the most important.
Maybe send some sound clips of the initial sound and we can come up with some ideas from there.

.How about some eq to bring some of the attack when you're touching the keys? That might help bring more treble in.
ugly rumor wrote:Very overlooked, and in my opinion better than the Showman series, was the Fender Studio Bass amplifier, which came as a combo with a single EVM-L 15. Point to point hand wired with six 6L6's in the power section. I think it is the best tube amplifier ever made for bass. They can usually be bought fairly cheaply. $300-$800 range. Made between 1977 and 1982, I believe. I use mine with a Meyer 15 in a separate cabinet, and am very happy with it, though I tend to use a Thunderfunk solid state most often, with the same cabinet.
