While I've been playing bass since I was a kid I've never paid attention to the nuance of the sound. And as I'm paying more attention now I know a lot of folks say that "a jazz bass cannot produce the beefy sound of a p bass". And while I now recognize the quality of p bass, is it so far-fetched to believe that one cannot get a Jazz bass to have the same thickness of sound that a P bass inherently has? I know that my pass jazz bass can't quite there, but what about that same bass with a preamp installed with 3 or 4 bands and possibly something like Audere's "Z" switch? I admit that I'm still a bit fuzzy on what a P bass sound really is, but am interested on how it can be achieved on other basses, besides muting the strings partially for that 60's sound.
