    Really metallic . . . like actual metal-on-metal sound? Could try a crappy Ibanez for that.

    Use a plectrum, a twenty five pack will cost you about 7 bucks.

    Fender Standard P-Bass. As close as you can get to Matt's sound for the price IMO. Just string it with stainless steel strings and use a pick.
