    I play in a hardcore punk band and I need something with a very growly sound with nice beefy pickups and a long neck. I play with a pick into an Ampeg SVT-2 Pro and use lots of distortion.

    Any suggestions??

  4. You use the Pick ?
    If budget < $ 1000 go for the ErgoDyne C :)
    If budget > $ 1000 go for the RickenBacker :)

    i suggest you to buy a bass with a own voice, a trademark sound.
    if you want boomy sound go fo fender precision
    if you like dostorted guitar like clanky bass sound go for rickenbacker
    if you want the best o for a fender jazz.
    obviously buy used.

  8. Its probably the lighting, but that is the best looking stingray I've ever seen! What type of pickguard is on there?
