Ok I'll make this quick. I need a bass with double open humbuckers, and I want it to be cheap. I've already looked at some but I can't decide. And dont say the thunderbird or Les Paul. Those humbuckers aren't open. Thanks and I hope you can give me a good recommendation.

1. Double open-humbuckers
2. Cheap
3. No Les Paul Or Thunderbird.
4. 400$ and under.

Think OLP makes a stingray copy with double humbuckers, the MM22 if I'm not mistaken. Don't buy one off the internet without trying it first though, their quality control can be a bit sketchy

SRX by Ibanez, or the aforementioned Stingray copy, maybe a used G&L Tribute, which would be sick.

may I ask the purpose of double open coil humbuckers?

Well it doesn't nessasarily have to be, double hums. I just want a good cheap bass that I can slap to my joy on. My squier cannot give me the exact sound that slapping should sound. Also my amp is about blown so I will also need a new amp.

Edit Edit: Nevemind, I think I'll go with the O.L.P stingray copy. Guitar center has OLP listed but none of the guitar. But on the other hand sam ash does. And also, I know a guy at GuitarCenter who will get me a discount cuz I buy so much from him, but only if we order from his store online, which is actually a great deal, has anyone else noticed this, and do you think it's just a glitch.

I wouldn't get OLP if I were you, I know someone that has one, and it sounds completely wank.

the Squire I tried was actually quite decent at slap, it was a VM, maybe look into one.

yes, I'm with Jonn0, the VM jazz will be much better for slap or playing in general then the OLP.

yup humie's right

I mean, larry Graham, the pioneerer of the Slap technique uses J style pick ups, it gives that authentic 70's slap sound and the Squire VM J's are amazing basses (that I have recommeneded to death this evening) being affordable and decent quality!

EDIT: And I'd kill for a Moon Bass, a La Larry Graham...man that beast's got TONE

yea ok I've got the Squier P-BAss Special and its kinda hard to slap by the jazz pickup without banging ur wrist againist the pickup anyway I'll look into those.

Edit: Also I was thinking about getting a good amp that withstands slapping and just normal playing. ANy good Ideas?

You dont have to play by the J p'up. Just use it. And also, slapping won't put the amp under any enormous pressure.
