    I typically preface my questions with a fairly lengthy explanation, so I'll get right to it this time XD
    Shayley Bourget's bass tone from the times when he was with Of Mice & Men has always been my favorite, and I'm trying to get something like that. Any ideas?

    These are some of the best examples:

    Sounds like an overdriven fender jazz, with lots of compression and EQ'ing

    Bingo. Make sure you have lots of wattage at your disposal for all that low end. Happy chugging :D
