A quote from issue 14 of Bassguitarmagazine (Tony Levin cover) Q: Are you still playing Precisions? A: ....there's no reason as a bass player to play anything else. Maybe if you were playing jazz or funk, but for heavy rock riffs the Precision is the only one that's round enough and has the attack. A Jazz is good for walking around and going dink-dink-dink.... So there.
