Its got a kinda... plunky sound, in my opinion. Listian to some Blink 182, or Some dead kennedys from the Klaus Floraide era.

Your bass will only sound as good as your amp can make it sound. if you have a shitty amp, a £1000 bass will still sound shitty, just maybe not as shitty.

You cant polish a turd.

Yeah, his threads are getting really boring now. Try playing your bass instead of talking about it

Don't play with an amp until you get a better one, just make sure there's not a lot of background noise so you can hear what you're playing.

blink 182's mark hoppus uses mostly jazz basses, so be careful to which blink you listen to. however, he HAS used a P-bass before and what looks like a musicman in one video

I'm sure Mark has mainly used P basses; Fender P-bass and his signature- Jazz bass body with p-bass pickups, is that what you're getting mixed up.

But someone let me know if im wrong
