Let's be Manichean. Let's split the World in 2. Like saying that all rock lovers are either Beatles or Rolling Stones. Let's say that primordially, there exist 2 basses. Only 2 opposing fundamental forces in the universe of bass when you try to relate your own bass experience to yourself and to others. There is: P or J. Ironically, J is the one that best insures your sound precision. It punches through the mix more easily. Whereas P gives you bottom however you play: probably what attracted you to bass in the first place. And so it's a tradeoff. Yet the J can sometimes sound twangy where the P can get muddied. Again, it's the tradeoff. In that paradigm, My G&L L2500 is definitely a J. So were my previous Ibanez Ergodyne and my MF custom bass. Oppositely, my Ibanez Axstar is definitely a P. I think that I'm more generally a J.
