hey just a quick question for a metal band would you use a fender p bass or a jazz ?
Whichever you like better. Personally, I like Jazz Basses better.
but the thing is i like both of them alot so i wanted to know other peoples opinion for which basss for metal
Metal you say?
Well, Nino's right in that either work well. I however, am in the P bass camp. I find it's "Thunk" to be more suited to metal than a J's "Swoon" Make sense? Thought not.
Ps are characterized by a lower, deeper thud, with a note that peaks higher, but dies quicker. A jass is a little more growly, and doesn't die like a P bass. In metal, though the sustain and the growl aren't appriciated as much as a thunk, which is approporiat, with all the 16th, 32nd, (Ect) notes that are flying around like loose shrapnel

Either will work, but I myself prefer the jazz.
Rickenbacker. IMVHO there's no better bass for hard-rock and metal.
Of course, if you asked the same question for jazz or funk, my reply would be completely different.
All the best,
