What kind of pop punk? It's a pretty wide genre.

I'd go for an active P-bass.
Ibanez SR505
Ashdown ABM 300 EVO II
Epifani UL410

Fender Precision American for a nice punky tone

OR

what about a Fender Jazz S-1 which is pretty versatile as it also has a P-bass tone too.

Oh and btw, what amp have you got? That'll make more difference.
Ibanez SR505

Fender precision, either active or passive considering its pop punk. What amp do you use? Fender have just (i say just, but it takes forever to get anything over in the UK) a Blue, red or natural coloured Aerodyne classic precison special, Looks very nice.

It's in your price range, with £200 under budget, you could pick up a couple of nice pedals or what not.

i've not heard anything through that amp, so cant really comment. Have you looked at any other makes? I know i'd be very happy with a Fender active bass. There's also the Aerodyne Jazz bass, have you seen that?

i play through a peavey TNT 115


Go for a Fender Jazz Bass, or perhaps an Aerodyne - they'll both sound great through your TNT.

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

I think a set of Seymour duncan Quarter pounders wouldn't go a miss with a precision if your going passive, They have a very punchy tone, great for Punk/Pop Punk.

Yep, it's true that Seymour Dunc Quarter Pounders give a really nice punk tone. Apart from that, seen as though your amp is fine, I would look at the Aerodyne stuff, but why not have a look at some Yamahas- i've heard great reviews.

i'd recommend a gibson thunderbird but i don't know how that would work for punk pop. other than that i would say fender precision bass.
