Funk Bass


I went to see Les Claypool from Primus and was inpressed. Does anybody have a preference for any model when playing a more funky kind of bass like that?

His basses are completely custom. He even has this crazy banjo bass! Funk bass is really more of a style than a bass model. He also uses a whole slew of effects on his tone so trying to mimic it will be hard. A good solid bass to craft any style on is a Warwick. Very versitial bass and has a wide range of tonal abilities.
