I'm getting ready to buy a new bass and I'm pretty much decided on the deluxe active series by Fender but I haven't had a chance to play a P or a J yet. The sound I'm wanting to get is good funk and good rock. I currently own an Alvarez P- bass and it gets an okay funk sound but I want a "good" funk sound. I noticed that most funk players that play fender play with a J bass (marcus miller, jaco, victor bailey). If anyone who has really played both of these basses could give me some help and possibly further describe their sound I would really appreciate it.
