A better bass is the best teacher you're ever gonna get.

 My two personal MüB are both four string Über-Jay. They are custom fit to my tone preference and playing style which spans from finger style to classical guitar arpeggios and some slap tweaks of my own. Action is very low on both basses because I like to get carried away.

 

I'm a striking looks and contrast kinda guy - there are pictures and specs of both basses below if you wish to verify that statement.

I like a lot of snap and growl with a P-bass kind of bottom thrown into the mix. But that's just the way I like it. Most likely you will want something completely different.
