Music Man Bongo is the best bass for slap, go to a shop and see why
I'll lay waiting, just waiting for my time to come

Warwick.

See what you're gonna get? Opinions. There's no definite right/wrong answer, you're going to have to make an opinion for yourself.

I play slap on my Ibanez and I think a Stingray sounds good (as do most humbucker basses) for slap.

*looks furtively right and left, then whispers*

I also think slap sounds decent on my Pbass, but don't tell anyone...

The ultimate pickup combination: humbucker/jazz. A chunkyish neck and resonant body...I'll take either my ATK400 or a Warwick FNA please!

Anything with an active preamp and a bridge humbucker (read: NOT A SINGLE COIL). Preferably JUST a bridge humbucker (gives you sloppy ass slappers some screwin' up room).

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I am openly willing to admit I like the song of slapping my fretless P-Bass. But, that's probably just me.

I can get (what I think is) a pretty decent slap tone out of my P-Bass, it's not your stereotypical slap sound but it's still good.

Yeah gonna have to agree with Fitz, the humbucker is the way to go. When I was borrowing that Stinger, I got some AMAZING slap tones - especially with the GK's decibel pad.

Although my Ergodyne, despite itself, is pretty good for slap. Can't get that deep guttural sound as from the Stinger, but it gives you a different kind of clear-sounding slap. Also carved for slap, interestingly.

Though I have tried it on a Jazz a couple times in the shop, and that had, well, the great signature Jazz sound. Man. I need to get better at finding flaws in things.

What's the opposite of cynical? Naive? I guess I'm naive then.

I've always been partial to the sound of Warwick slap. I definately prefer the sound of a jazz to that of a stingray, but I find the slap on a Warwick (Corvette standard or a Thumb) to just have an edge on a jazz.

I like a good Jazz for slap, but humbuckers give a slightly better tone. The Jazz 24, with more frets, might give a different sound... I'll have to try that baby out some time.

Also, "One Of These Days" is rudimentary slap on a P-bass, and sounds great.
