The Squier P-Bass Special 5.
Why do they call this a P-bass when it has no Precision pickups?
Body shape & Pickguard. Also string spacing.
Ok, I was under the impression that the only requirment of a Jazz bass was Jazz style pickups. My Yamaha has Jazz p-ups, no pickguard, and it's not the Fender Jazz body style. So, is it still a jazz bass? I would say yes.
The Squier doesn't give specs on neck width at the nut. If it were 1 11/16" at the nut, I would call it a jazz bass with a precision neck. If it is 1 1/2" at the nut, I would call it a jazz bass, regardless of the body/ pickguard style.
but thats just me.
Hmmm, the body of a precision but the brains of a jazz in a squire package.
They should call it "Job Opening in Reasearch and Design Dept."
Well, one of the things that's crucial to a J-bass, is the pickup placement. Compare this bass to a normal J, and you'll see that they're not the same.
