    For my money ther is only one bass for punk rock.
    The music man stingray. Some people use Precisions, but they don't have the bite that the stingray does. If punk,/heavy rock is all your gonna play, id say a medium high action, and a heavy pick.
    ut that bass is much more versatile than that.

    If your going to play "heavy" music with a 4 string, tune it BEAD. You'll have to modify the nut though.
     
  4. i use my 2000 MM Stingray with a Ampeg B-2R head and a Hartke 4x10XL cab. The Aluminum cones and the Stingray work excelent for and incredible punch. Much, much more punch than any P-bass could do.
