    I'd like to vote both and neither.

    I have 2 Jazz & 1 Precision...but these days it's all Afterburner.

    I misread the poll. I thought you were talking about pickup configuration because of the P/J combo. Change my vote to neither.
  4. PJ combo?

    Are you asking if peaople have a bass with p and j pickups, or a p bass and a jazz bass?

    I voted neither. I have a MM and a PJ.

    J's currently (Lull Js to be precise) though I'd like to get a Lull P/J combo eventually:

    My go-to bass is my heavily modified MIJ '75 Reissue Jazz.

    If you classify soapbars as a Jazz configuration then yes, otherwise neither :p

    I own the following Fender American Deluxe Precision V:


    Although I selected P/J Combo, it is truly a P/H combo. The bass offers a lot of tonal variety for different styles of music and playing techniques.

    I play both. I use my Jazz more than my Precision.

    I have both but the J is my "A" bass and the P (a Mike Dirnt) is my back up. Although, I'll use the P for songs that call for its lower throat.
