Let’s see, hmmmm ..... I own 4 J basses, and 1 P, an acoustic and an upright.
Maybe he means only a jazz player would buy one like it . To be fair I had a Westoe Thunder IIIA that looked like that, although under the pickup covers was PP. So I was extra Pish with it. Sounded great for Geddy Lee stuff (so does that make it a J? In reality it was the action for a grindy sound) , but had preamp issues and some switch combos were silent so I foolishly sold it.
Similar for me, but 5 Js (Lord I had to count twice. . Ye gods) and two PJs and the EUB is still conceptual.
“J” for me.
Possibly, since he was seemingly on the metal plan.
J--because of the neck.
I love ACME products!
The final answer to the question: "Which are the best carrots for metal?"
Back on topic: P or J?
The poll needs a carrots option!
may the bass be with you
I'm an HH. If I had to choose P or J, it would be J. But I prefer HH over SS, so ... carrots.
J all the way. Then I played an mm-p and two world's collide like MasterCard.
I found that combo, at least in solo playing to fill all the voids that the individual pickups lacked.
On TB, it is a man or woman's inalienable right to vote "Carrots."
Sweet looking bass
On one hand I appreciate the sonic versatility of a J bass , but something about the simplicity and low-mid punch of a P bass makes me consider myself more of P, despite having two Js and only one P at the moment. "At the moment" because I'm seriously eyeing up the Squier CV 60's Precision 3TSB and tort 'guard that's coming out soon
Keep up the sonic experimenting, cuz you...
Ok, I'll admit that I don't get the "carrots option" joke...
Is it this?...
J. Couldn't get along with any P type instrument I've tried, from a playability standpoint. Both can sound great, or not so great. From the OP's description, I'd rather punch through the mix, the twangier the better, not a fan of mud or indistinct rumble.
The more thinkings I have up in my brain compartment about the whole P vs J thing the more it seems to be a Catch 23 situation and a complete worst case Ontario.
That's EXACTLY it.
I used to be a J for sure. Now I'm a P and I dig a P-bass with a J neck.
I wish you wouldn't have brought that up
My tummy hurts now, from all the G.A.S.
