Am Std Jaguar Bass w/ split coil - How does the tone compare to an actual P Bass and the MIJ Jags?

    I've got a MIJ Jaguar right now, and I think it's sounds pretty sweet through my rig - though a little 'flubby' and hollow/woody sounding though when I play with a pick, and put it through my Radial DI for recording.

    I've been toying with getting a precision bass, but I do love the vibe and feel of the Jaguar, and am tempted by the new American Standard Jaguar basses with the Precision pickup. I'd love to hear your guys' thoughts on how it the Jags compare tone wise to a real P Bass.

    Would love to hear someone with experience with both a P and American Standard Jaguar to comment on this question as well.

    I recently bought a mia Jaguar bass. With the neck soloed, it sounds just like a P Bass. Now, there are those who aren't crazy about the 62 p bass pickup in the mia Jaguar, but it's definitely a P Bass sound.

    The mij Jaguar basses are essentially a jazz bass. They will be close to sounding like a P using the neck soloed, but it's not the same.
