    So, I was wondering (because I've got nothing better to do)...If the Jazz bass was invented to play Jazz music, does that mean the Precision was invented to play Precision music?:bag:

  3. Indeed and the EBMM Stingrays were made because they got calls for discrimmination against marine wildlife not having a bass for themselves.

    That’s correct the Precision bass goes back to its Latin word precise, it was made that way blind people could play perfectly , of course thats just a myth who really knows, Jay charles a blind bassist was known to play a P with his brother ray. Of course fender tried to hide all these facts and put out false information to brain wash the masses.


    Looks like some others are just as bored as me today:cool:

    Leo put frets on the P so it could be played more precisely, hence the name. Not a funny reply, but there are probably some young'ens out there that don't know that (and maybe some not so young'ens).

    A hoarse walks into a bar, the bartender says, "Why the long face?" There, how is that?
