I think its the perfect set up for a pbass! Post pictures of you favorites.
I do too. This is one that was sold locally to me recently that was nice. It had a J pup added too ...
P bass + jazz neck = the only bass for me.
Since I vacillate between P and J basses, any combo of body and neck works for me. I'm especially fond of my MIM Fender P Special Deluxe, so much so I put a $90.00 custom sparkle pickguard on it.
Jazz bass bodies with Precision bass necks.
That's my Holy Grail!
Imho, and just for the music I normally play, necks: the bigger the better; basses: the heavier the better...
Sorry for my different speakin' . 0,02
Count me in. I prefer the fatter P-bass neck.
Wallace, you would have loved this Geddy Lee Body with a Classic 50's Precision Neck I popped together for giggles one day. 12lbs. Fattest P neck out there. 70's Snarl.
The neck came off the body to make this P with a Jazz neck.
This is my current fav P with a J neck.
I have to say.. I'm with the P body J neck crowd.
Love my '87 Jazz Bass Special (P body, J neck, P/J pickups). I do not like a P neck. Too wide, IMO.
For some reason I've really started preferring P-Basses with P-bass necks - weird, right?
It's half cured my Rickenbacker GAS..
Yip, I love the combo. I have a '78 Ibanez Precision that I chucked a jazz neck on.
Beautiful basses guys!
I used to get a lot of cramping and pain in my left hand after playing for a couple of hours on my jazz bass and I though it was my technique. Now I play my RIC for hours with no pain. So even though I dont have the biggest hands and jazz nacks are faster, I prefer larger necks for a pain free existence.
This. I prefer P-basses with P-bass necks.
One of favorites is this Warmoth I put together with a J neck.
My dream bass is a tobacco burst pbass with black guard and maple jazz neck, awww yeah .
Im another who loves P bass but prefers slimmer necks.
Ive owned 2 Lakland Duck Dunn's because of this and now mostly use my Squier CVP with Lakland JO neck on it. I did have my Squier CV Jazz neck on if for a while but wanted to use the Jazz as well.
I've posted this about a million times in the last couple of weeks, but what the heck...
That reminds me, i forgot to post my one(s)
Am I the only person who doesn't really notice the difference between J and P necks? I mean, on some level I know it's there, but it has absolutely zero effect on my playing.
I've got a Squier P, a MIJ Jazz, an Alembic with a rather baseball bat like neck profile, short scale jazz, wide-flat Yamaha BB.
Honestly, I just strap them up and play them and never go "I wish this neck were 1/8 inch narrower at the nut"
After booking a few poolside gigs, I bought a cheap MIM Jazz off Craigslist (because even if we play 50ft away from water, I'm positive I'd find a way to drop my Ric in). I fell in love with the neck and now it's pretty much my go-to bass! If I ever get a P, it'll definitely be with a J neck.
