Don't know where to ask this.. I don't play bass but I need to buy a bass for my own recordings. What kind is good for a thick OD sound that can sort of do rhythm guitar's job? Kinda like ZZ Top does I think? Under $500 for sure. I see a Squier P Bass and an Epiphone Thunderbird getting great reviews. The TB has Gibson humbuckers. Is that what I need? Couldn't find any such info anywhere! Maybe this is a stupid thing to ask.
