    Which do you guys prefer? What sounds better???
     
  2. I just bought a Jazz and a Precision last month. I have found that the Jazz has a nicer tone but lacks the output of the Precision. If you are going to play loud music (ie. punk), go with the Precision. If you are playing more mild / quiet music, go with the Jazz.

    Playing-wise, I like both necks. I like to switch between a thick and thin neck occasionally.
     
  3. if you play loud music get DiMarzio Js or SD Hots for your Jazz

    play both. there is no way to explain which is better, but the jazz bass does cost something like $100 more than the precision.

    to explain the sound, the precision bass has a clearer, smoother sound while the jazz has a more nasal and midrangey growly sound to it. Just go to a guitar center and play both back to back.
