I read that when Fender created the Jazz Bass, It was more of a marketing move than anything else. The logic was that, since the Precision showed that there was a market for the Electric Bass, they should create a prettier, more expensive model. Of course, that doesn't mean it's a better instrument. I also read that one advantage the Precision has over the Jazz is that you can adjust the volume of one induvidual string if you want to because of the split pickup. Does anyone know if the Precision has any other advantages over the Jazz Bass?
