    I was woundering if i could get some suggestions for a new bass. I am looking for a bass that is good for a ska and punk sound, i am a fan of tone, not a big fan, but i like to have that control over my sound. i play with a pick but have a hard time finding a bass that will give me that powerful bass feeling when i use a pick on it. and money isn't much of a prob below $1,000 is good, thanx all for the help and rock on :bassist:!!!!!!!!

    I'm a fan of tone, and I don't like anyone that's not a BIG fan of them, I think they've put out some extraordianry work & deserve the recognition. I think we have something here..... pick+ska+powerful bass feeling= :rolleyes:
