Already, let me explain my situation and see if I'm the only one that is confused by this. So they say P Bass was designed with the fundamental tone in mind so that the P Bass would be mellow and sit well in the mix, and the J Bass was designed with more focus on the overtones so that it would be more present in the mix. Here is the problem I have, I find the P Bass have a nastier, raunchier tone that J Basses. I find J Basses have a smoother tone that sits better in the mix. Can someone explain? Or am I the only one who notices this?
