    What would be the best type of woods and pickups would be best for a very punchy but deep, articulate, smooth sound, with amazing growl, and with a very good slap tone?

    That's exactly what we're all trying to find out.:D

    Plus, it's a very subjective thing...one man's punchy is another man's harsh.

    Uh... Are there any web-sites that list the qualities of the various woods you can use in making basses ? The different characteristics that a certain wood will add to your sound... good neck woods...
