First of all, sorry if this isn't being posted in the right section, I didn't know if I should post this here or in the Pickups forum.
Anyways, I'd like to ask you guys if could help me out with a tone related question. I'm trying to figure out which bass I should get when I make the "leap" and get a "real" bass, and it's either going to be a Fender Precision or a Jazz (I currently have a Squier P).
To help me decide I would like to know if anyone could help me by telling me how to achieve the kind of bass tones like the ones in these 70s portuguese prog rock jems: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5f5dQromxU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13s4NdT3lhs
I know for a fact that both albums were recorded with a Fender Jazz, but I prefer the body of a Precision, so is there any way to get close to this tone with a Precision or do I really need to get a Jazz?
Thanks, and sorry for the trouble!
