    I would go to a music store and come up with your own opinions and then repost this and see if you agree with the others.

    It's not that simple.

    If you do a TB search, you'll find there's no definitive answer to those questions.

    Assuming you live close to a music store or have access to each of these basses, you and your project would greatly benefit by defining each as the one you can lay your hands on - ie. a P bass is defined as 2004 Fender American Standard Precision Bass serial number @#$!@$@!. Play it and write what you find. It will be a lot faster and you will learn a lot more than you will know when you're done.

    If your project is going to based on second hand information, you may as well start doing a TB search and see what you're in for. You will likely end up with more questions than answers.

    Good luck.
