Jazz Bass Vs Precision Bass – can YOU tell the difference?!

Ok... I'm going to put YOU to the test.

You up for it?

Plus - I'm also going to reveal the winners of the Sire bass competition... yep... I'm giving away more than one.

But before we get to that...

In this video, I'm putting a Jazz bass up against a Precision bass... and I want you to guess which one is which...

BUT... there's a twist! I'm putting a P bass up against a Jazz bass neck pickup!

There has always been a LOT of discussion about whether you can get a P bass vibe with a Jazz bass neck pickup... so, I thought I'd put this to the ULTIMATE test and see if you can tell the difference without seeing the basses!

Ready? Let's do this...
