P or J?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Davidoc, Jun 15, 2003.


  1. P bass or J bass, which do you prefer?
     
  2. I like P's
    I think they look bad-ass

    how can one determine which is better ? both rock big time,both sound sweet,both paved the way for EVERY other bass,both age gracefully,both are the choices for all the best bassists,both look cool:cool: ,i own one of each, and most of all i look and sound cool with either one.:D so how can i decide ? I CANT !so i'll just have to make sure i always have one of each at all times and places :bassist: so many companies out there are trying to improve on the bass designs,kinda like trying to re-invent the wheel :meh:

    I love both. I won't decide.. No offence Davy0, but it's like one of those stupid "yeah, but who's your BEST friend?" questions you had to answer in 1st grade. Am I wrong here? :D

    [edit] I see now what you meant by posting this.. apparently I missed another Six Slinger Thwapfest. Goody. (insert another witty statement here relating to first grader mentality):meh:
     
  8. I've always played a precision. But I wonder... does the Jazz have a deeper, fuller sound?!?
     
  9. Having owned both, I prefer the J. It seems to have a more versitile array of tones. Both pickups up full and get a great slap tone. Back off the neck pickup and you're in Jacoville. I don't solo the neck pickup much, but I imagine you get more of a P tone doing that.
