    If you could pick from these basses which would you use?

    One can never go wrong with the P-Bass. Bass of ALL time!

    I'd choose one with good intonation that plays well.

    I have a Jazz and a Dano VI string bass.

    I take back the "meh." I looked up the Reggie Hamilton and that is what I would use. That pickup configuration can give you anything.

    It's not that hard to intonate a bass. I have the Penultimate bass in a Parker FB-4, with mags and piezo, but would still search out a p bass if in need!

    EDIT: Couldn't pass up posting a pick of the FB-4 :rolleyes:

    I didn't say it was hard to do, just that it needed good intonation.

    My way of saying any decent bass will do.

    Any decent bass with active pickups. The active tone controls allow you to cover a ton of ground.

    A lot of people doing DI into their recording interface seem to like pawnshop or other budget basses for recording.

    One word "Nirvana".

    EDIT: NO talent to make a bazillion dollars, thank you Butch Vig.

    What the hell does Nirvana have to do with anything?

    I've said my piece. Any of the basses above will be fine if you can play. Any bass that has good intonation, plays well, and is well played will do "pop rock" just fine.

    And...Cobain was a great songwriter . And I've worked with Butch and Garbage (the Bond film TWINE) . He's a great producer, but if the song isn't there, all the great production in the world won't get you a hit. Evidence: the title song The World Is Not Enough. Great singer, great production, crappy song.
