    This.

    Or Les Claypool from Primus's greasy fretless sound. His playing does help things though.

    Joe Lally from Fugazi has made me want a Stingray for years. They're a bit pricey though.

    Paul McCartney is the king of tone for me, but I also really like Pino Palladino's sound with his P bass and flats. I also have a soft spot (a sonic fontanelle, if you will) for John Wetton's old Hiwatt grind in King Crimson.

    Excellent choices. And there's always this guy, very distinctive and idiosyncratic:
