Depends on how it sounds. The epitome of punk is to reject style over substance, to reject brand names for function. Does it sound good? Can you afford it? Then frak yeah, buy that papasmurfin' bass!
0% punk because you asked that question.
Put a black pick guard on it and you might get a touch more cred though
You will be .5 Punk, because you had the gumption to ask for advice. Some street cred was introduced.
Those numbers on the side of the neck detracts a lot from the punk factor as well - they indicate that you actually care about playing the right notes.
Lol.... Exactly. If yo wanna be punk-ish, then you won't give a rat's ass. I think that's the way it works in punk. Oh, yeah. Jam a couple of safety pins through your nose, and nipples, too. Now, that's punk!! I guess.......
One more thing. The name of the place you'd be buying the bass from..... Gumtree.com
I think that would cancel EVERYTHING out. Good luck!
You'll be a little bit less punk as you are now, which is a little less punk than you were before you posted.
At least you won't be dead.
Why do people equate being punk with owning crappy gear? Punk bands that I saw in the 80s usually had good gear. Fender, Gibson, Marshall, Ampeg seemed to be the standard. This didn't change in the 90s, either. Or the 00s.
Punk is an attitude
It ain't about good or bad, it's about giving/not giving a rats ass about your gear. Worse yet- in this context- dude appears to give a rats ass what others think about his gear. Not necessarily weak per se, but absolutely anti-*punk*
Tell that to Daryl Jenifer from Bad Brains with his graphite neck and Badass bridge. I remember someone saying that his bass was not punk because of those upgrades
Punk or not punk, crap gear sounds like crap. That is crap.
What he ^ said.
That's out version of Craig's List.
Same as it ever was
Saw these guys a while back - H.R. was a heart of gold, bless his soul, but Daryl was an absolute maniac on that bass.
Great band and in my world, the definition of punk!
About half as punk as you would be if you bought and wore the Hepworths freezer suit from the same seller.
Separate names with a comma.
