    I really don't know much about your genre of music, but it seems to me that if you want to emulate those sounds, you make a list of the basses that those players are using, and that would narrow it down for you. Then, if you had a list of say, three, you could then ask a more refined question from this group.

    Hard to tell since you`ve got many good options in that price:
    MIA Fender Jazz/Precision, EB Musicman Stingray / Sterling, G&L, Spector, Warwick, and the list goes on and on.

    I personally don`t believe that a bass can be limited to a certain style of music. I agree that narrowing your search with your fav players would be a good idea.

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    Then, after you narrow it down to a few, go try them out so you can see what works best for you.

    I'd say an EBMM Stingray would be sweet for that kind of music. The guy from Flyleaf uses one and it sounds SWEET with their kind of music.

    If you really don't know, go for an MIM P.
    Most versatile bass at that price point, don't assume the Jazz is more versatile just because it has another pickup!
    Anyway, you can get a lot of versatility from a nice amp. That's why I reccomended a $300 bass (BUY USED) for a $1200 budget. Hint hint.
