Probably the most talked about dilemma in bass history is which axe to choose, the Fender Jazz or the Fender Precision.
Both instruments are legends in music and both have been time tested to the nth degree.
For a lot of people, myself included the decision is so difficult that you have to have both. However many bass players, especially beginners can only afford to choose one and the choice is not easy.
When I first started playing I bought a Fender Jazz partly because I liked the name but mainly for the thin neck, and that was my main bass for several years. Eventually though I got the desire to own a P-Bass and that started my flip-flop affairs between the two basses.
