I have both!
Who cares if it fits your sound.
I've got both a P and a J pickup in my bass.
(Hey, I made this!)
This isn't about one being better than the other - this was about wrestling with an identity crisis. I've considered myself a "Jazz Bass guy" my whole life, but I recently realized that I have become a "P-bass guy." That's all.
(the original comic is from Achewood, where Ray realizes his preferences regarding...uh...female composition have changed, and I had the same kind of experience when it dawned on me. From here: 1 2 3 )
The J has its uses, lightweight MPTF gigs and stuff. Just been too lazy to put one together out of parts on hand. Totally forgot I had a PJ. Time to dust it off, I guess.
I personally like them both, but I noticed that all my heroes used P-basses to get their tone.
Something is wrong with that comic... the bear sees a P-bass and goes "Slap! Slap! Slap!" to himself...
But, happy user of a Reggie Hamilton (active passive P/J Jazz bass) I discovered (after having bought a BlackTop Jazz) that maybe my perfect bass could be a Jazz body with dual split pickups and a Precision (possibly maple, but... whatever...) neck (and a detuner)...
Now, sticking to the OP: Jazz BTW
