In Reply to: Fender P bass or J bass... hmmmm? posted by DDazey on August 22, 2001 at 10:05:06:
: Hello all!
: I am a bass player of about 17 years and in those years, I've owned a limited number of basses which never have included a good ole standard Fender Bass. In my opinion, nothing sounds like a Fender and now I am considering picking up a Fender but I'm trying to decide between a P or J bass. I'm aware that the J bass has a thinner neck and (I think) different pickups then the P bass, but I was wanting to see what kind of information you could share with me about the differences between the two. Which you prefer and why.
: I need to go to a store and try a couple out and see for myself, but I thought I would start my research here because of all the knowlegable bass players that visit this board.
: Thanks in advance,
Either one of them is a fine choice, I own one of each, but for a meat and potatoes bass, it is pretty tuff to top the P, and of course, I switched the pick ups, and have a Warmoth Tele neck on it, very similar to a jazz neck..you know how to reach me if I can help any other way....
