I need some help, i'm looking for a new bass perfered a fender bass. i play a punk/ska/rock kind of thing. i have been looking at the mark hoppus signature bass, i love the output but hate the limiting factor of no tone knob. I have look at standard p-bass and really didn't care to much about it, i wish it was punchier, louder, and brighter. I even thought of putting a semour duncon quarter pound p-bass pick-up on the fender p-bass, but i'm not to sure how that would work out. I though of maybe a jazz bass, or even on of those combination p-bass jass bass deals and replacing the pick-ups with semour duncon quarter pound p-bass and jazz bass pickups. But so far i think my best bet wouldn't be fender at all but something like a music man stingray but to me the stingray just lacks that that fell i prefer so much. so can anyone out there help me?
