    Alright so I'm a fairly new bassist and my first base was a Squier Bronco Series P bass and it had a horrible sound imo. I'm looking to get a new bass and I need suggestions. I have an $800 budget, I'm looking for precision only basses. I will use the base to play punk rock,alternative rock and anything else along those lines.

    ALL RECCOMENDATIONS WILL BE APPRECIATED THANKS.

    You're in the wrong forum... you want this one:
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/

    And I'd suggest starting with the FAQs a bit. Though The Perfect Bass is an awesome store (I can't wait to get my Bongo 5 HSp from them!) and I recommend them to everyone I talk to, you'll get more traffic in the main forum.
    If you start your own thread, you'll need to provide a lot more information on what you don't like about your bass, your amp, what you're looking for, what basses you've tried in stores (and why you did/did not like those ones), the band(s) you play in, etc. etc.

    With that budget, a Fender MIM Precision bass is your best bet.

    You could get a used MIA P bass for that price as well.
