+1000000 for that. That is how I've been running my J bass for many years now. But both flavors just work. That's why they're so popular. I do think the J is a but more flexible. OTOH I also have a P bass. The method I use for selecting one over the other is at setup. One will just sound/feel better that night, in that room. The most important element is in you....your ears, heart and hands.
