I'm currently looking to get a new bass, and I'm a bit lost. I thought I had a good thing going when I found a good deal for an S500, but now I'm reconsidering. I looked up the equipment for a lot of the bass players that I'm trying to emulate online (Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, Mike Dirnt of Green Day, etc.), and none of them use an Ibanez. This worries me. I've heard that using an active Ibanez is better for a punk sound than a passive, but do you think that I should still go through with this? Thoughts?
