Which of these 4 strings would you or do you play?
If I had the money to get a new bass, it would be a Fender P.
i HATE fender!
THEY ARE ALL THE SAME SHAPE! AND THAT PICKGUARD!!! EEW!!!
I have a Stingray, a P, and a J. I play them all, as they each have their own personality.
I'd go J between those 4, I don't like the big necks on the P and Ray, and sometimes the Sterling can't get quite as smooth a tone as the Jazz.
I would go for the j. I just happen to own 4 j's, 4 p's and 1 RB5
It's a toss up between the P bass and the Stingray, for me.
Just as the P and the J have their MIA Deluxe editions, I think that the Sterling should be thought of as the Deluxe Stingray (at least as far as the electronics go). My choice is the Sterling for the tonal versatility and faster neck...but I'd want a J for a backup.
I said stingray.. because I used to have one.. and in some ways I wish I still had it.. its a great bass.. with amazing tone
I just love it.
Especially fretless with piezos!
Too bad someone picked that one up from the local guitar center.
fender p-bass special
the best of both worlds.
American Deluxe jazz
they all have their place, but if I had to have only one, I'd probably go with a Sterling, but a Jazz is a close second.
Personally, nothing beats my Rick 4001. However, I do own a 1975 Fender Jazz and a 1990 Jazz Bass special (the precursor to the zone bass). I own six basses and what I use varies from song to song. Still my Rick is the #@&!!!!
60% i play a Fender Precision American Series
40% i play a '79 Rickenbacker 4001
Jazz bass. Particularly an old stack-knob.
I have a fretless Sterling and love the fast neck and tone from this bass.
I like the jazz for its versatility.
I would play any of them
I'd have to say Jazz as I own 2 of them, a 69 and a 96. I traded a Stingray for the 96 50th Anniversary Jazz.
