Precision vs. Jazz bass

I'm sure people have already made threads discussing the pro's and con's of the Precision and Jazz basses, but does anyone know of a place where I can hear some sound samples or clips of the two different kinds of pickups?

Lakland has many sound clips of their high end Precision and Jazz basses - with rounds and flats.

Jazz: http://www.lakland.com/multimedia/ac_osborn.htm
Precision: http://www.lakland.com/multimedia/ac_glaub.htm

The good thing about this site is that they have each bass in many different enviorments and applications. You can see how each bass fares in punk rock, funk, etc. And both basses are used to play the same song so you can A/B them. Excellent site, a must listen for anyone who is confused about the tonal differences of the P vs the J.

I love Lakland, there basses are so so sexy . I'm GASing for a donald duck dunn sig from them, plus I live not too far from the factory, they let people go in and try out their basses which kicks ass.

I love the sound of the P with flats in jazz... really cool sound. Almost convinces me to take the D'Addario XLs of my P... almost.

Yeah, that's wicked. But it's horrible for me at the moment because that really send up the GAS for a Lakland through the roof. I'm desperate to try out a Duck Dunn or Bob Glaub now.

Try the skylines, they're fender american deluxe level basses. Their USA basses cost insane amounts of money.
