    I think that a Jazz Bass is better.

    Why? That is simple! Because I don't own a P Bass.

    Neither is better - they are both different.

    I prefer my P for rock and my jazz for everything else.

    My P has a better naturally cutting rock tone but my J has more variety and is easier to play.

    You need to have both!

    Default P vs J

    Ive owned both and have to admit they both have their own tones and strengths. I started off with a "percission" when i was a highschooler (actually my first was an old beattle bass copy made by Kingston so the Fender was my first pro bass). I played it to death for years. Ive owned Ricks, Gibs, Fenders, Guilds, and a couple off the wall basses that were kinda boutique guitars over the years and finally decided that the Jazz was the best all around bass for me. Ive got a pic of me when i was 18 playin the P-bass and a pic of my 1999 Jazz in my albums below

    I would have to vote for the P. Why, because I don't have a J! I think they are both great, I just happen to like the look and feel of the P better. Having a nice one of each would be the optimum choice.

    I like the Jelly, much more than the Peanut Butter, if given a choice...

    i don't think either is better than the other--its which 1 is better for your purposes.-hard to beat the sound of a sweet P bass...but the sound,which is different, and versatility of a jazz bass is also hard to beat. play them with what your needs are in your mind, and your ears will tell you which 1 is for you.

    I prefer the P-bass. I like to keep things simple. One volume knob, one tone knob, and one pick-up. Simple,kinda like me. Dwitt

    I have never played any one of the two, but I have held one. A mint condition 65' J(I think) bass. It was really nice!!!!
