The bassist might change a bit too, to thicken out. I think most trio's benifit a little with an overdriven/dist/fuzzed bass (of coarse using a pedal that also allows the clean to mix in too).
Just having the bassist switch this kind of setup on when you solo, will help fill in what a rhythm guitarist would be doing if you were a quartet. It would fill in that missing higher rhythm while you solo.
Also a fuzzed bass is just sweat anyway
edit: Don't worry too much about sounding thin during verses without guitar, I know Nirvana did it as well as other trio's. Sometimes, just bass, drums, and vocals sound great. This also allows you to come in a bit later during the verse to build it up.
That delicious smell is the result of a birdnest on a pair of 6L6's.
