Hi everyone. I am currently the bassist of a punk band, and recently just after my band finished playing a gig, some drunken metalhead came charging towards me, in the process ruining my bass . It was my first and only bass (Peavey Milestone IV). Now I am looking to purchase a new one, but there are so many to choose from. That is why I am here. I was wondering if someone out there could suggest a new bass to purchase, that would have a good sound for punk, or rock. Money isn't much of a problem, but just don't go overboard and suggest some top model spector or something. Thanks for your help people. P.S. I'm in the market for a new amp as well...if anyone has any suggestions.
