Coronavirus - Jazz v Precision?

Recommended Posts

I did both, I put one of my favourite jazz necks on an old P body I really like , and fitted a  tonerider pickup with a kiogon loom , and with Labella LTF’s , it sounds great. But normally I’m jazz all the way 🙂

We're overdue a post on both so I thought I'd combine them for absolutely no reason. 

Precision

Neither. Unless I now live in a world where they're the only two government approved types of basses, then Precision. Until then, I'll enjoy one of the freedoms I still have at the moment and play my T-bird :)

Is this J v P when isolating due to coronavirus. 

If so then definitely enjoy a J at home before you get back in a band situation and it gets lost in the mix.

Precision (PJ) with jazz neck. Even though I don't actually own one... 😁

Would the honourable gent like a PJ with a jazz neck, and plenty of knobs to twiddle on? Would you Sire?

Jazz.  More sex, greater immunity to illness.

Luckily I’ve just started playing a Jazz....

Times like these, what you want is a P with rounds and a J with flats.

😲

Which happens to be exactly what I have. 

Although I am thinking of swapping them round.

But that’s only because I’ll get bored stuck in the house.

No! Precision (PJ) with a Precision neck. And flats. So there (sticks out tongue......).

Ahh I've had a Sire and the plenty of knobs thing was too much for me 😁

Best get a Yammy BB then. They have passive aggression in their PJs down to a fine art.

Tbh, before the virus drama, my plan was to sell 3 Fenders and put the cash towards a custom Sandberg build. 

I was talking to Holger at the end of 2018 and had spec'd a passive VT with stacked knobs and a specific neck profile (copy of my KT neck).

I was just about to pull the trigger and was umming and ahhing about the finish, when an ex-display passive TT4 came up at a bargain price, and I can't resist a Sandberg bargain, so I went for that instead. Still want that VT though! 🙄😁

Got to be a Precision, it has been the weapon of choice by many bassists to wallop an errant punter over the head so it shouldn't have too much difficulty with an annoying virus, Jazz basses are for nice people!

I love Js, my no.1 is a Jazz (well, a very, very good MIJ copy) and much as I'm drawn to Ps, I've never found one I really got on with, either soundwise or playing.

If only there existed a through-neck P style bass with J neck proportions and 2x P pickups, preferably made in Japan in the late 70s/early 80s, with maple fingerboard and a natural finish...

Oh, bugger. :(

How do you get on with the bassmute, @Reggaebass?

I'm with you @neepheid, got some recording to do with the T-bird, and playing an EB-0 quite a bit at the mo!

Something much like a precision, but a little shorter and a lot cooler. In other words Leo's greatest creation - the mighty mustang bass.

Yeah good, I really like the muted sound sometimes and I’ve always used foam under the strings , and still do on a few other basses, but the good thing about the bassmute is with just a flick of the lever you can have 3 types of mute from light to full on , or completely off .

They're perfect for the sweet innocent girl-next-door types too.
