    I love J-basses! They fit my style perfectly, it's almost as if they were custom made for me! (well, that's exaggerating a little bit). P-basses are good as well, but I only like the ones that have a J-pickup in the bridge position (P Special I believe they're called, there's just something I don't like about only having one pickup...).
     
  3. J basses are damn good beginners instruments.


    :D

    Seriously, I like 'em too!

    J's are OK, I have one and I play it but I prefer the tone of single coil P basses. Now, if the single coil P basses had a neck like a Rumblefish, I'd be in heaven.

    Yeah...in the P thread I said my MIA Deluxe is my #1, but, really, I have one P and three J's...J's were always my first love and will always be tied for first, I guess...

    Aw heck (as I look at my forlorn J's over there on their stands...) I love J's! I love P's!

    Hey...my initials are PJ...go figure...

  6. Until this year, I had never had a J before. I like'um. I've always had a fetish for thin profile necks and my MIJ fretless has the slimmest around. Count me in!

    I'm a J guy through and through.

    People always tell me I haven't had a well prepared P...folks used to tell me the same thing about liver:eek:
     
  9. Brad, it's true about the liver. Properly cooked liver and bacon is a cholesterol filled delight...it's easy to mess up liver.

    Considering that I have never really played but like 2 P'
    s in my life I guess that makes me a J fan (I did like my J better than the 2 P's I played though.)

    I recently bought an AS J.

    Some reasons why J's are fantastic:

    Open both pick-up's full bore; classic tone
    Roll off the neck, good solo tone

    Not expensive

    Not a lot of switches, dials etc., ; we're musicians not technicians. Keep it simple. Don't get caught up in gadgetry.

    I love my MIJ fretless! It's got a Moon
    ac-1 active eletronics with a pair of
    deMarizo 123's (and a chrome-plated copper pick-guard for looks) It booms and chicks!

  19. J's, Fender J's, are wonderful basses. They are versatile, sound good, feel good, pretty. However, as much as I love them, and I own three, I love my P's, Fender P's even more. Since I don't have to do without, I have both. And that my friends, makes for a wonderful world.
