    Hey gang. I'm looking for a new bass guitar. I currently play off of a cheap Yamaha p-bass and am looking to upgrade to something better. I don't want to spend more than $1000 and was wondering your thoughts on what I should buy. I'm looking for something that will provide a good punk and ska bass sound. Thanks gang.

    For myself I would look at a Fender P or Jazz. There are also some great Yamaha's at that price point. Like Brendan said, there is lots that you can get both new and used at that price. What tweaks you?

    There are tons of options for under a grand. You should visit a music store and play a few, and find out what tone you like best.

    There seem to be Lakland Skylines (nearly) new FS all over.
