I played with this guy across the street the other day... And this was the 1st time I had talked to him... I had seen him play a few times when I was going to my games but ay ways... He really got me into walking and slap bass within the 1st ten minutes of talkin to him... Before this, I was sold on a fender P... but now I'm not sure that would be the right bass... I only wanted the fender p cause my band is basicly all punk so i didint wanna waste my money on a good frettles or something... now im thinking about Warwicks and those Washburn RB 2002's... and this peavey at the local music store that has been there 4 ever and a day for the past 3 years... graphite neeck and all... it is an odd color... black with glitter so people think it is ugly.. i think it is sorta secksy ... but... what do u guys suggest since im suddenly swinging towards a more jazzy/ red hot chili peppers bass style? rickenbacker? those look awsome... but do they sound awsome?
