    When it comes to Fender guitars its all about: Tele/Strat

    Fender basses: Precision/Jazz



    I say the Tele/Pbass are brothers because they are clearly the best and they have the least pickup options but best tone.

    Strats/Jazz are brothers cause they are really good too but have too many pickups and Dud combinations

    Jaguars/mustangs remain jaguars and mustangs in guitar/bass format.

    Jazzmasters = Bad Stratocasters and don't deserve a bass brother

    I've been playing guitar since 1986 and I can't tell the difference between a p-bass and a jazz bass.

    Have you listened/tried them? Different pickups and tone. Slightly different neck profiles in general.

    I disagree.

    There are great Teles and bad Strats.

    And there are great Strats and bad Teles.

    The same applies to any other Fender model and any guitars by other makers.

    Even though guitars look like they're stamped out with a cookie cutter, two identical models made side by side on the same day can have drastically different personalities (tone, feel, and playability). Find a real good one, and it's a keeper.

    Amplifiers are no different.

    I like em’ all for their own merits.
    I also own all of them, so I guess I’m an equal opportunity gear nerd.
    Push comes to shove, I’m a Tele/Jazz Bass guy.

    When I play my P/J bass I turn both pickups on 100%

    I have 3 strats and two of them have humbuckers. One of them has H90 single coils and it sounds like a long-scale Jazzmaster.

    I've never owned a Telecaster.

    Agree on Tele/Pbass.

    Fender Esquire introduced 1950

    Precision bass introduced 1951, with Esquire/telecaster neck
    [​IMG]


    So the tele and P bass were specifically designed to go together. The body shape of the precision bass was turned into the stratocaster, which was supposed to replace the telecaster completely but due to steady sales of the Tele never did.

    The jazzmaster was supposed to go with the jazz bass, and had matching offset bodies.

    So no jazzmaster of jazz bass.

    I think my sarcasm implied more bias towards Tele/Pbass over the Strat/Jbass... which I do personally prefer. But my point was more which go together in these particular pairs of the best 2 fender basses and guitars
