    This is true but a Jazz style bass or Stingray doesn't hurt!

  6. Yes, Paul Jackson and James Jamerson were lousy funk player s as they don't/didn't play Jazz basses.... :).

    Funk is a state of mind. You could be funky with a pawn shop $20 Rogue bass.

    Lately I have used my P Bass Deluxe (2010) in the studio without any pedals, it did the job. :)

    George Porter Jr. + P bass = Funk.

    Funk isn't really limited to a particular bass, but really the player's style. I've always thought funk isn't so much about what notes you play, but what notes you don't play. The hardware is secondary.

    I know there's no pick involved-even in metal.

    Every bass can sound funky, it's about how you play it.
