    Both P-nut and Dirk used Warwicks. Perhaps a Warwick Rockbass is in order.

    Rockbasses won't quite capture the tone of those players since they're playing high-end model Warwicks (not Rockbass) and using compression and incredible amps, I'm sure.

    If you can wait to find a good deal on a MusicMan, I'd say that'd be a good idea. Great slap tone and stands out in the mix well. Listen to Take The Power Back by RATM if you want to hear one.
