So I am looking for a light weight bass, preferable a jazz. Unfortunately, they are pretty heavy, unless I go custom or "boutique" which can get expensive. Not always, but often. Anyway, whenever I pick up a P bass, they always seem to be light. I don't mind P basses. They play just fine and seem to sound ok - until I try to use it for CCM at church. I've always been a jazz guy, but as people say many times, a P or a J should be able to cover most any gig. Both are classic basses. I have always tried a basic passive P bass, but I'm wondering if I would be able to make an active P "fit" better to my ear. Or am I way off?
