Hey all.
Im just looking for your opinions on what bass guitar would best suit me
I have been playing for about 3 years
i am in a band
i have has lessons before for about a year.
but i have been teaching myself lately.
I have had some started bass guitar for about 3 years
and i am looking to upgrade to a better one
i am willing to save up but not overly expensive
i am in a kind of punkish grungy band but we do tend to play some soft songs
i dont nessasarily play massive hardcore funky bass riffs

anyway anyhelp and i would apreciate it.

Thanks

Fender P Bass

Three votes for the Fender Precision Bass but...

You may want to also consider looking at a Stingray or Sterling. Even though SUBs have been discontinued by Ernie Ball, you still can find those lurking about stores and Ebay, and they're good deal if you can't afford a full on Musicman. Miss G just got an SUB, so you may want to PM her for more info as well.

I'm not sure why, though.

We should start a support group.

A Mexican Fender P runs about $500 from memory. The USA made ones are about double that, and I think the highway 1 P's (middle man between USA and Mex, with an oh-so-lovely finish) run about $800.

I personally would go Ibanez, or Warwick if you can afford it. Actually depending on what you are going for I might even splurge on a Musicman Bongo or Stingray.
But the Bongo would only be there to be different.
Punkish attitude mmkay?

Just my input.

As much as I dislike them, the Fender P is probabaly one of the best options

That or a Jazz, try them both, see which you prefer, they are different, the necks especially (the neck being the reason I dislike P basses)

fender deluxe p special would be a good choice, its a p/j with a jazz neck. fender highway one p bass would also be a good choice.
