Jazz pickup and a precision pickup
I am a newbie, so this is probably a newbie question. I have a Cort Action, and it has two pickups, a jazz bridge pickup and a precision neck pickup. So does that make it some strange hybrid bass, or is it still a p-bass?

A combination of the P pickup and the J pickup is usually called a P/J Configuration. They're quite popular, especially in cheaper basses. So yes, in a way, it is a hybrid bass :D

Ok thanks I learned about p-basses and j-basses a couple of weeks ago and i saw my bass had both so I was confused

Yep, what Dbt said. However…
I don't know if I'm in the majority or the minority, but I feel that if it's a Precision-style body, it's a Precision, regardless of the electronics or neck profile. I feel the same for Jazz-bodied basses. To put it another way, I'd call a Volkswagen a "Volkswagen", even if the engine and wheels have been changed or upgraded.

But Leo added frets to make a 'Precision', so it could be intonated "with precision"-
didn't say anything about pickups or shape...

I own a Mexican made Precision Bass Special. Simply a P-bass with a Jazz pickup in the bridge position. Oh.. It does have a Jazz neck too.
