Just wondering which of the two people like best..
I'm a J-Person myself...
Welcome to TalkBass, Robin.
You can post this in "basses", you know. Don't be shy...
I love J basses, but I have had more P-basses than Js, there's something about them that just feels great.
I am a pretty die-hard J fan, myself... But I am in the process of building a nice P bass. I feel like they are two different animals. I like my J for more melodic, laid back, finger-style stuff, and the P bass for whacking away with a pick! That doesn't stop me from flipping those around, however. I just hear a pretty big difference in the tone, and I also think the p-bass reacts better to the heavier attack when I use a pick...
I have been a J bass guy for years, but over the last 2 months I have changed camps. I want a good, affordable 5 string P, so I will be building a Warmoth P/MM 5 in a few months.
I love 'em both, but my fav is a p-bass with flatwounds. I think i would like a p-bass with a jazz neck, and a jazz-routed p-bass body with a jazz neck. Both fretlesses with ebony fingerboards. Flats on the p-bass, rounds on the jazz bass.
I have both,and lately prefer the P.
I really like Js, but I like the P/MM style the best.
"J" all the way!
I have both, but I think I like the P better. Something about the feel and tone that makes me like it better.
I like P pickups, but I like the J body......
I have always been a fan of the Jazz bass. In fact I used to hate p-basses. mainly because my first bass was a p-bass copy.. it wasn't very pretty. but Now that i've played some nice p-basses, I find that I enjoy them a good bit. But i would have to go with Embellisher on getting a P/MM configuration. that would be a tonal monster. Heck why don't you just get a P&J style bass. I really like those. the best of both worlds imo
Hey, you could get a Hoppus bass!
I'm a J-man myself!
I have only owned two basses (I somehow still have my first), and the first is a P and J. However, I've played a good few of both, and the only bass that's satisfied me yet is the one I currently use, with dual humbucking pickups.
J-bass of course
P for me.
I am a J-man myself. I think the J-style pickup configuration just has a better growl, and slower decay time. The P pickups just fade after you hit a note.
Why is it that the majority of people on here say P, but the vote is for J?
J , is there really any challenge
