Blacktop vs MP

    Hi all,

    Browsing the bottom end of the Fender website and I came across The Modern Player Jazz and The Blacktop Precision.

    As far as I can see, they both have two double-jazz pickups but, it looks as though, on the P, both pickups are decidedly closer to the bridge (am I seeing that right?) Which would, presumably, give a punchier, middier sound?

    Has anybody played both of these? Is there a noticeable difference in tone or is it just a case of Precision body and neck, or Jazz body and neck?

    I imagine the tone would be very similar on both these basses. Although the jazz bass does look nicer (well, to me anyway)
