50s Precisions and Jazz basses both have a single coil pickup at the middle/neck position but the 50s precision's has a different shape to the normal single coil.

Is there any noticeable difference in sound between the two?

Do you mean the difference between a single coil and a split coil? I'm confused

Edit> never mind, I get you now. Whenever I've listened to either one being played, I've not noticed a difference, but I've never sat down with either and A/B'ed them.

the p bass one should be a little beefier, because it has 4 magnets directly under it, unlike the jazz which have them no the side of the string

It's all about the abalone. You can't play metal without it. Mother of pearl? MOTO? GTFO!

I just got a reply from the Bass Whisperer himself!

@jonsparrow15 - I don't remember about the Squiers.... it's been a few years since I played them, but on my 51 RI and Jazz basses - the 51 sounds a little brighter, and a little louder than the front J pickup.


Thanks for the replies, everyone.
