    Jazz basses seem to be a lot more common and they have definitely enjoyed a real outpouring the last 15 yrs or so...:rolleyes:

    It's simple. Some people just can't handle a P. Wimps.

    I guess less people prefer a car that just goes straight to a car that can go straight AND turn left or right.

    Ive noticed that also. Jazz basses are being sold more and more frequently. Jazz will be around a real real long time, and most of the basses nowadays can do jazz without being specially designed for it. O well

    I would think that people may hold onto their Jazz basses because they have more tonal variations and may be easier to play due to the thinner neck (that depends on hand size).

    I have a '65 Precision and 2 Jazz basses a '73 and a '78. They all sound great. Each bass has their own personality. I mainly use them for recording now, or a good old fashioned Blues gig.
