I have an Ibanez 200 series bass and want to upgrade to another Ibanez bass. I would like it to have a great punchy tone to it...any suggestions?

By punchy do you mean more treble and mids? You should try fucking with your amp's settings and your bass's tone knob. Or you could try getting new strings? Get thin bass strings and that'll probably give you the sound you want.

I love boomy bass so i used earnie balls and turn my bass up higher than my mids and treble.

But be a little more specific. Give me a bassline or band that you want your bass to sound like.

Haha and i just realized you're the guy i'm fighting with in the Zeitgeist thread. No hard feelings about it though right? Just a harmless argument and difference of opinion (with a few swears in between) haha.

I play a fender Jazz 5 string and an ESP. I'm not too into Ibanez's but everyone that i've played has already had a bit of a "punchy" sound to it already.
