*Notice I didn't say "best". I'm curious what other people think constitutes an ideal bass for pickstyle playing. As a full time pick player, I've come to the realization that some basses and combinations seem to work better for pick style, and others seem less suitable. OBVIOUSLY anyone can play any bass with fingers, a pick, with a thumb, by slapping, or however else they want. But when you play with a pick, which bass makes you the happiest? For me, the answer right now is my Peavey T-40, but I also particularly enjoy P basses and Rickenbackers.
