    I'm glad everyone doesn't hate him haha
    Well I wouldn't say he's a bass idol anymore, but I really appreciate him because he gave me the courage to actually try bass back when I was first starting, and when I first started playing I played blink songs because they're fun and not that hard

    Yeah I heard that was a paint job, I think it looks better than all the colors his sig comes in though :D

    I saw Blink, last night. While Mark's playing was solid and simple, his harmonizing with Tom was a total train wreck. Of course, the audience of all pre-pubescent teens could care care less. Man, I'm getting old!

    One little odd detail I have a question about is Mark's pickup configuration. Last night, he was playing Hoppus signature basses with reverse P pickup configuration. However, in this video and his signature bass available for sale both have the pickups in normal configuration. Why is that?

    wow, what an awful song.

    Not a Blink fan but I do like the Hoppus sig bass. All the ones I have played were fantastic.

    I wouldn't mind owning one of the pink ones.

    I never heard of Mark Hoppus until I bought his sig bass off of E-bay. Still can't tell you much about Mark Hoppus, but his sig bass kicks ass!

    He decided while playing in +44 to have his bass updated and reversed the P pick up because he liked it, i think his sig bass will be changed to , but his basses are mainly customshop.

    No one said he was great just like most players everyone has some fans. I will never understand why people like sid vicous but they do.
