: Hey guys! I thought it would be interesting to hear everyone's opinions on Fender P-Basses. You know, the ones all the funk guys used in the 60s and 70s -particularly when the P-bass is strung with flat wounds! The Jass bass is pretty popular because of guys like Jaco and Marcus (and many others too numerous to list) and because it has that great growl to it.

: But, how many of you like the P-bass sound, hate the P-bass sound, play a P-bass, or have compared a P-bass to a Jazz bass?

: Cheers,

Ahhhhhh, the P-Bass, just about my most favorite bass there is! The curves, the balance, in my opinion you can't beat it. I used to only play(warmoth) P-Basses with two sets of pick-ups, but recently I have had an attraction for the Jazz bass. So I have made a couple of those too. Awhile ago, I bought a Precision to have just one simple precision, but I was so used to the dual pick-up configuration, that I had to install the second set next to the bridge. So, I like the P-body and the J-pickup sound. with a Jazz dimensions neck.
