Between a P/J and a J - Which Gets Flats

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by billinbrasil, Dec 20, 2019.

  1. If you had these two basses:

    - early 80's Fender Jazz Special
    - 2011 Squier Vintage Modified Jazz

    which one would get flats??

    For classic rock.

    Good question. You could make a case for either, but if it were me, sheesh...what the hell WOULD I do?

    Try them both; see which one sounds better in the FOH mix.:thumbsup:

  5. My natural inclination would be to put the flats on the PJ as not all flats sound good on a J.

    P + Flats = Sound of Classic Rock.

    I'd toss a set of GHS CM3050 Precision Flats on your Fender Jazz Special. As for your Squier VM Jazz, as set of GHS hex core Bass Boomers will give you the grunt; growl, and brutality for the roundround side of Classic Rock.
