    I've played through alot of different rigs, but ive never been able to find the tone they have on Seinfeld. I'm just curious and it seems like itd be fun to play around on. Anyone here know how to achieve it?

    Funkadelic's "Flashlight" used a keyboard too, and I didn't know that for the longest time

    Yep, that's been covered in a number of threads here. But in answer to your question, a new set of round wound strings on most basses
    will get you in the ball park with a little tweaking of the tone controls.

    Then slap and pop the obligatory "Seinfeld riffs"
