which would be better for classic rock?
man i wish i had the money
Either bass would be a great choice really. If you plan on only playing classic rock, I'd say go for the Precision bass. Every player should have a good P bass- it's the quintessential rock tone.
Both great choices (Along with a Gibson Thunderbird). Basically, whichever one feels better to you would work great.
A Jazz worked great for John Paul Jones in LED ZEPPELIN!
although my personal preference would be a P.
I would say both but if that's not an option I would go for a Jazz. They deliver a great classic rock tone and have more versatility for any other style you may find yourself playing down the road.
Precision: Queen and Pink Floyd
Jazz:Jimi Hendix Expierience and Led Zeppelin
How about a P/J bass?
Why do people only consider the 2 basic fender-ish models when looking for a bass? You'll get a better sound out of any dual coil pickup for rock!
This kinda thread is the reason I own one of both
No you won't. Fender rules. That's just the way it is.
My heart is with the P-bass (with or without the J), but almost any bass should work fine. I've seen classic rock played effectively on Alembics, Ken Smiths, Warwicks, you name it.
Lance Armstrong will beat anyone while riding a Huffy.
btw - There are thousands of people that could beat Lance Armstrong on a Huffy.
I hope you're being sarcastic. Fenders couldn't beat 80% of the basses in their price range.
After many years without one, I finally got myself a bass with a P pickup. It's a P-J configuration but the J pickup may as well not exist, it almost never gets used.
I vote P for classic rock.
You're missing the point. It's the man not the instrument. And Lance Armstrong burns to 10000 calories in a single Tour De France stage. Let's see the thousands who can sustain that level of exertion.
I prefer Ps, but you should try both out.
