    Does anyone know of any punk bands that has a bass with a jazz pickup configuration? It seems like all the punk bands only play with P pickups.

    Matt Freeman from Rancid uses J basses I believe. Does he qualify as punk?

    ...the guy in the Suicide Machines uses a J-Bass(& plays finger-style).

    Are they considered a "punk" band?
     
  4. Matt Freeman DID play J-Basses...now hes going with the crowd and playing P basses. And Rancid does qualify as punk.

  6. Karl Alvarez of Descendents and ALL has been using a Jazz bass for several years.. last several times I've seen them live, he's played a cool Shoreline Gold J. And playing the living s**t out of it, I might add!
