Wayfarer direct, or through a bass cabinet IR can work pretty good. At the other end of the spectrum is the tseaudio.com BOD model of a Tech21 SansAmp is surprisingly good. But the best is probably Cerberus bass amp: www.kuassa.com/products/cerberus-bass-amplifikation/.

Hopefully S-Gear 3.0 will have a bass amp.

The way most studios do it:

A decent quality DI box straight into the console (interface), compression and EQ to taste... viola... fantastic bass tone that sits great in the mix. Make sure your strings are fresh!

Personally, I hope Mike and the team focus on more guitar amp sims, effects loop, etc before spending time on a bass amp sim.

My personal option is Plugin Alliance's bx_bassdude, as Cerberus doesn't do very well when pushed on the dirty side (I don't personally like the character of its drive channel).

+1 in S-Gear including a bass amp

Hopefully S-Gear 3 will happen :unsure:

My money is ready to hurl at Mike if and when this occurs, and frankly it is burning a hole in my pocket

One of the best real world quiet recording amps I've used for bass was a fender twin. I've tried the Duke on a clean setting and it worked pretty well. The bass shift switch can add some color depending on pick up configuration. I usually compress after S-Gear pretty heavily for bass. The Wayferer on a clean setting would probably work well too, especially with the graphic engaged, I think I'll try it tomorrow to see for sure. Lots of room for tweakery with the Convolver too.
