    You can't go wrong with a Fender Jazz, especially for punk. Some people would say P-bass, but I see the Jazz Bass as more versatile. But thats just my two cents.

    Let me help.

    I did it! I have saved up money for about a year now, and I have about 500 bucks for a new bass. I am kind of stuck on which one to get. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, I play Led Zeppelin and some punk songs by bands like Blink, Green Day and Rancid. Any help will be appreciated. I suck at spelling, so don't correct me. Thanks.

    Now I feel much better. Don't you?
     
  4. Get a Spector. They can be had used for around $500 and the new ones aren't that much more than that. IMHO they are the best basses for the money out there. They blow MIM Fenders away, and I prefer my Rex to almost all of the more expensive basses I have played.

    I think I agree with this statment....well....just a LITTLE ;) But if you are low on cash, Or need to buy an amp with that money, check out "Essex" basses....but Spector first.......
