I used to play a 4-string Jazz in an alt-rock band with a 7-string gain and distortion-happy guitarist + a Strat player and my favorite setting was Neck 75% Bridge 100% Tone 100%. With this setup I could hear the bite of my bass but there were no lows - it even seemed that the guitarist's 7-string had more low-end than the bass. If I favored the neck pickup, I lost the bite and the low-end was still missing. I also played a Precision with the same band and it was the opposite: I could feel the shaking lows of my bass but the attack was lost in the mix. I'm looking to buy a new Fender bass and even though I love Jazz basses aesthetically and sonically, I'd rather sacrifice bite for thump than the other way around. So I will probably go the store and walk away with that nice buttercream Player Series P, or maybe the Vintera 50's blonde... not sure what the difference between them is really. Maybe one of you could help please?
