    I will Hva to agree that both are very good, but in different categories. I played both for months deciding which to finally buy. I went with the Jazz bass because od a more shapely body, there are more vintage Jazz basses than P-basses from what i have seen, and they are the most versitile, diverse basses I have played. Good for Rock all the way to plung, and then you could go and sit in on a blues session. HMM lets see, Geddy Lee uses Jazz as primary, as does AudioSlave, the vines use a jazz bass too. All of my Bass heroes used Jazz basses, and you just have to love the feel of them, ohhh yeah i almost forgot... THE UNBELIEVABLE TONE. But it is really all in the player, You could have the nicest bass out there and sound bad, or you could have the worst bass out there and be the greatest bassist to ever live. So go play one and see how it feels to YOU.

    I have both. I like the feel of the Jazz neck better, but I like the way the p bass sits in the mix.

    They are both great tools for laying down a groove.

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

    Our last bass player had a P body with a J neck...or maybe it was it the other way round...
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    I was looking for a Jimi Hendrix tribute guitar with a J body and a P neck.

    They do make 'em with Jazz and Precision pickups, but I haven't seen a Jimi tribute model, yet.
