No. Rhythm guitar isn't an instrument, it's a role. The bass is a different guitar. In a band the rhythm guitarist plays an ordinary guitar but generally plays chords over the top of the lead Guitarists flashier fret picking. Rhythm is a similar style to bass in that they keep the rhythm and aren't there for the glory but it is just an ordinary guitar

Many bands have both; in fact, most bands with a rhythm player also have a bassist. Some examples are Guns n Roses (classic line-up; Izzy on rhythm, Duff on bass) and Candlemass (Mappe Bjorkman on rhythm, Leffe Edling on bass).
