    Ok, I'm sure the P vs J thread has been used to death in many, many conversations, but hear me out.

    I've played guitar for 3 years and I'm starting to pick up bass, but all I have now is a crappy hand-me-down. Im lookin closely at the MIM P and J-bass's, and I can't decide. Which pick-ups are better suited for punk/hard-rock? I play mostly with a pick, and the P's action is lower, which turns me on to it right now, but I'm more concerned with sound, or which ones better for the punk/hard rock scene.

    Oh, I've seen the Mark Hoppus as well, which seems like a good alternative cause of the P and J pick-ups, but it doesn't have a tone knob. Anyone use this bass?
