    I just had to do a poll on this.
    P-Bass Player, do you prefer a Standard P neck or a Jazz neck on yours?

    I'm an ardent P fan. For both the pup, the bass, and the neck. The irony is that apparently people prefer the Jazz neck 3:1. Which is a bloody shame, because now Fender is putting out all these P basses with Jazz necks. I keep seeing nice hotrodded basses and such, all with Jazz necks, which I find a little too tight for my liking.

    P bass standard, all the way.

    I started out with a P, but then played a Jazz. I liked it a lot more. So I bought it. The difference to me is like making out with a slighly overweight yet attractive girl than a skinny yet attractive girl. You take the skinny one.

    Brendan, you can always put a j or soapbar route in a p-bass.

    P. I'd even like to have a P neck in Jazz body. Jaco had that configuration in his "instructional" video. How often did he use P necks?
  8. Odd. I would think that most bassists would go for the big bottom.
  9. not always, my friend."mo' cushion fo' tha pushin'" is what i always say.:D
  10. P for now. I'll let ya know when I get my jazz.
  11. Hep! I'd go with a older Fat (Lady) chick...and a Jazz neck! Sweet! combo..

    Ketch, maybe that’s the way you see it, but to me, it’s more like Tyra Banks vs. Ally McBeal – I’ll take the P-neck, thank you.

    I think 44me has hit the correct woman/P-J bass comparison.
  15. J neck. And only J neck.

    P's are to slow for me also. And I don't like the P sound either.

    That being said :D

    I'd like to pick one up (cheapie) and see if it'd work in a band situation. Never hurts to try, and I've never played one in that situation. It may just be a great sound live. I like a 'ray sound (4 string) and sterling (4 and Ray5), so maybe one p/u is the way to go.
  16. Jazz neck all the way.
  17. lol, RIGHT ON!!!
  18. idk that's what I've found out! But the P p/up is a great design because with it being split, it can follow the arch of the strings better than say a J p/up, and yes even better than one with raised pole pieces...
  19. fat bottomed girls you make the rockin world go round!

    freddy mercury's spirit has left the board everybody!
  20. I`ll take a P neck on my P bass and a J neck on my Jazz. :p

    And for the record:I would rather have a woman with a bit extra than a bag o bones.:D
