    I am relatively new to the electric bass (and it is my first instrument), and while I was browsing through a catalouge I ran into some terms I was unsure of the meaning off.

    My first question is what is the difference between a Precision bass and a Jazz bass?

    I noticed that there are many types of pickups a guitar can have, descriptions of them or links to descriptions would be appreciated geatly.

    What's the best kind of bass/pickup for playing alternative rock (stuff like Nirvana, Oasis, Bush, etc)?

    That's all of the questions I have for now. Thank you for your time.

  4. I agree with the above posters, plus most of the stuff you're listening to was recorded with Fender Jazz and Precision basses.
