In this bass guitar buying guide we compare four legendary Fender bass guitars, a bass shootout between the Precision Bass vs Jazz bass vs mustang bass vs jaguar bass, so if you were confused, hopefully this video can help you decide which is the right one for you.
For decades now, these guitars have been heard on countless recordings covering a huge range of musical genres, making them some of the best bass guitars for rock, jazz, indie, pop, funk, country and punk. They've inspired countless copies and imitations, but nothing beats a real Fender, so we'll be looking at some of their best bass guitars for professionals including the new American Professional II series Precision and Jazz basses, as well as some more affordable Player series models, some of the best cheap bass guitars that Fender produce out of their Mexico based factory.
We look at the differences between scale-lengths, long scale vs short scale, the body designs of each bass including offset vs non-offset, how the neck profiles differ between a P-Bass and Jazz bass, and give you a tone comparison between the split coil pickup of a Precision and the dual single coil pickups of a Jazz bass.
