Classic rock = P/J configuration, try the Ibanez GSR series for lowend p/j stuff, and the squier P bass standard,

I found that a fretless jazz has an excellent sound for classic rock.

P/J for classic? I've found J/J or single P much, much more common for classic rock. The P/J is more associated with 80's hard rock/hair metal.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Right you are, I seem to be getting my times mixed up, apologies.

J/P/J pickup configuration

personally, I don't understand why people want a 'classic rock' and such tone. I prefer to have my own tone and play.

a fender would work best for classic rock, methinks.

Fender Jazz, or Precision. either will do great. the "P" is more "boomy". the "J" is a little more "twangy". i prefer the jazz neck over the "P". imo
