So here's the backstory: It's my birthday in a week or so (Sept. 11) and I've been looking for a new bass. Right on I'm that squier starter thing on a GK Backline 115 and I've been looking for a punky bass. I love Green Day and Blink-182, and the type band I'm trying to start up is going to be playing Pop-punk and alternative. Happy, just light stuff and I've been looking for light bass. Don't get me wrong, I love 311 and RHCP, but I don't want a bass that's E string is like an atomic boom, I just want one that sounds light and kinda flighty. I've been looking at a Spector Legend 4-string, and while it sounds great, it's a little too boomy for me and I went and tried a Fender standard P and J bass becuase the genre is mostly dominated by those, and I loved the sound of a Precision, and I'd seen the Hoppus on the internet and loved the look of it, but neither of my GC's has one to play, but I figure if I like the sound and playability of a P bass, and its just a J body with P pickups and neck, I'll love it too right? Also, I have tried the Mike Dirnt one, and while it sounds just like Green Day, I hate the looks and weight. So, back to the thread title, Does the Hoppus sound like a Precision?
