Difference between percision and jazz bass?


Recommended Posts

A JB has two single coils and a P has one split Humbucker. HUGE difference in sound between them.


And JB necks were traditionally a lot slimmer than Ps.


One of the earliest 'hotrod' tricks was to put a J neck on a P body, and install a J bridge piclup. These are now available as a 'Deluxe P' direct from the factory. This design probably combines the best features of both guitars.
