Electric basses are still non-transposing instruments with F8vb clef

In https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/pull/2781, the definitions of some string basses were converted to transposing instruments with a regular bass clef (for both master and 2.1). But though the original discussion specifically mentioned electric as well as acoustic basses (https://musescore.org/en/node/17623#comment-63939), it turns out those are still non-transposing instruments with the F8vb clef in instruments.xml.


Seems we need to "up" the string data by an octave (for all transposing basses that can have tablature), like it was done to "Guitar (Treble Clef)" after discussion in https://musescore.org/en/node/38581 and https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/pull/2255

So it seems we need this "fake octave up" for "Bass Guitar", "Electric Bass", and "5-str. Electric Bass"

Not sure about "Fretless Electric Bass", is that used together with tablature? Similar with the (plucked) accoustic bass(es).

Fretless is fretless (like violin and oud... eg) So, different, since no "specific" tabs.
Maybe preferable to open a new issue ("regression issue regarding octaves in Tab for bass instruments")
