Classic *insert here* Sound?

  1. So I've been wondering...what exactly are examples of the 'classic' sounds of basses? I've always pictured these but I could be wrong...
    Classic P-Bass With Flats:

    Are these good examples of the tones or am I simply uninformed/what do you guys consider 'prime examples'?

  3. Huh, I saw a live video of the song with a Rick but I suppose it was a different guy.
  4. Anybody else have any examples/input?

    Mike Dirnt used a Gibson Ripper for most if not all of Dookie. The signature P bass thing came with the later albums.
