    First off, it's a BASS, not a guitar. Next, the bass you buy depends on the sound you want. Blink and Sum 41 both use Fenders, and Limp Bizkit uses Ibanez. From the bands you've listed, I'd go with a good ol' Fender P Bass. Of course, my answer to everything is a Fender P Bass. Get what you want.

    hey man, they all got strings :)

    as for your question, a Soundgear should be fine for LB type music, but not too great for "punk" (blink, sum41). a P-bass would work better for that stuff.

    i suggest listening to different bands and figuring out what kind of tone you want then going to a music store and trying EVERYTHING you can, even if its out of you price range so you can get in idea of what's out there.
