Good cheap bass for slaping.

    I am learing to slap but still like to finger style in between my slap lessons (yamaha bb404). I don't like my slap set-up on my single bass and would like to get another to set-up just for slapping. I am considering a fender p-bass (used MIM). It seems the pbass can be had for a decent price. I like the yamaha bb series as well. Any good suggestions on a bass to look for that is cheaply aquired (less than 150) and is a good candidate as a slap machine?

    BTW
    I'd like to add a bridge pickup cover on the slapper.

    I personally prefer the slap sound of a Jazz bass to that of a P, but I do like P basses slapped. :) I would prefer a J bass clone but not by much.
