I'v only tried the J Bass once, but i love the P Bass.

Although im gonna get a fretless J one in a couple of months
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

I personally prefer a J/J or P/J, my fender has a P/J set-up and I love it, the P bass sounds so good and one both are blended I get an amazing tone. Jazz's are also fine basses.

I think there's too much hate for P's on this forum they;re lovely basses, just not for me.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.....


Personally, my only reason for disliking the P-bass is the aesthetics. I just think they're a bit ugly. I'd love to have a Jazz bass with a p/j pickup config.

i got the P-Bass Special, it's got a jazz neck and P-Bass body, i like it, it serves it job. But i'm looking to getting a Jazz soon

#13
I like both basses. I generally give the upperhand the the J because it's easier to play (thinner neck profile). However the P is a plug and play bass; you don't have to fiddle with the knobs. And it works for almost every genre
#14
I'm more of a guitarist but for the occasional times when I want to be the general of the band (bassist), both the P and Aerodyne work very well. The Aerodyne's neck is kinda thin though but fast, and the tone is more versatile, for a part-time bassist. I like the PBass' simplicity and the neck feels better.
#15
I love my P-Bass, i tried out the jazz and to me it didn't feel right. I have quite big hands though and I like having the fatter neck.

I'd have to go for the Jazz Bass because they have two J pickups which I love and I really like the look of the Jazz Bass which can't be said of the Precision bass. Also, I can get a tone more tones out of my J Bass while the P Bass only seems to have a tone fit for rock.

i have to agree with this. I like to play the post-rock / prog rock stuff like Pelican and Agalloch, and my p-bass just didnt do it justice. It had nice deph when fitted with a hollowish sound with major delay echo, but that was too much.

you can do so much more with 2 J instead of just one split coil. nice bass lows and beautiful finger picking with neck, and heavy "im in yo band cutting through yo mix" style with the bridge.

Oh and the jazz makes me look sexier, so +10

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Fender basses at all. The necks just don't do it for me. And while the sound is good, its not enough to compensate for the neck.
