I never played a Jazz Bass. If it's not a Cort Curbow, it's P Bass knock offs with Seymore Duncan installed P Bass Pick Ups. I like the simplicity of the P Bass, one tone one volume knob. The Jazz has like three knobs. Plus the P bass came first. Just personal reasons why I'm a P Bass fan, heh, heh. Anyways, give me some reasons to at least pick up a jazz bass.
