When in doubt, get the P?
But the J has to many controls for some people.
most times the J, But for a few types of settings the p is standard
I would've thought that, when in doubt, get whatever sounds, feels, looks and plays best for you
So how do these people drive a car?
"When in doubt, get the P"
For a Jazz gig, probably not.
I love P basses. One of my favorite sounds is my Hot Rod Precision with solo'ed neck P. Awesome. But I wouldn't call it the most versatile of sounds. If that's the sound you need all the time, then that's great.
Personally, I like having the ability to get a variety of sounds by using different combinations of pickup volumes etc.
When in doubt get a Stingray!
Oh, no? Damn, well, screw you!
I'd say, when in doubt, get a J, and get rid of those pesky frets
Screw both of them and get a 102-year-old Mittenwald 7/8.
When in doubt, reach for the Conklin GT-7. What can't you do on that?
j all the way
True for Rock.
For other genres... It's pretty much "up for grabs".
i find that i can get BOTH of these sounds with my Jazz Special,i put Dimarzios in the P position and a Bass Lines in the J position. easy enuff ,but when i use my 3 way toggle switch to put it into the P/J position it takes a little bit of power off from the overall sound,which is why i only use it in the P position, but its nice to know if and when i need it to sound like a J-bass i have the option . i prefer the sound of a P-bass but need the versitility of a J bass. I CANT WIN ! sorry bout that ,i get "wierd" sometimes,DESCRIBE wierd ? fingernail sensitivity,nausea/vomiting,diarrea,pelvic dis-comfort,terrets syndrom,panic attacks,hot sweats,cold sweats,cardiac arrests,numb limbs,head-aches,blurry vision,double vision,goose bumps,the whim-whams ETC.
I wouldn't have said that 4 months ago, but then I got a p. I think, it's up to you. I find the jazz necks to be waaaay to tiny in first position. I'm looking for the jazz body/p neck/p-j pickup combination.
When in doubt...pick up whatever bass is nearby and play.
When in doubt, pick a bass.
when in doubt....
