    What type of bass would you guys recommend for fast punk? I currently play an Ibanez sr800 but I don't like the sound a lot. It seems that most punk bassists play Fender P basses. So what would you recommend?

    For what you do, I'd go with a P, G&L, or a Music Man.

    Yea I'd go with a P bass. Or, you might be interested in the American Hot rodded P-bass by Fender. Its gotta P pickup in the neck and J in the bridge. They stopped making them either this year or last year.

    I'd get a 'ray. It's got the look, the sound and the build quality. A nice hunk of wood.
