    Well, I've been playing for 4 years or so now. and I'm on a really tight budget and I just need something to play with that sounds good. I will be gigging with it.

    Which would you suggest?

    hey!
    funny you mention that, I own both basses. When I first got the precision is was great, it felt really well built (you gotta find a good one, fender is notorious for poor quality control) but I thought I needed something more. I went and got the OLP, it was much easier to play, but I needed something more. I went back and upgraded my P, new pickups, new bridge, new pickguard, everything, and now I'm going to be buried with that bass. P bass has a huge huge aftermarket, everything you want, you can do with it. The problem is, a stingray and a precision are such different animals that the only thing you can do is play. but believe me, you can't go wrong with either bass, but if you want to upgrade either, the p bass allows you to go alot further. But yeah, totally different basses. It took me like 100 sentances to get to that point, ha.
