The Fender Precision Bass (AKA P-Bass) debuted in 1951. The P-Bass proved to be very popular. The Precision bass featured a slab double cutaway ash body, a single coil pickup, one piece neck and massive Kluson tuning machines. These are impressive basses to photograph.
The Fender Jazz Bass is also a popular bass and was first introduced in 1960. The Fender Jazz Bass was designed to provide a mellower tone and featured 2 pickups and a 34" neck. The fingerboard was tapered and narrower than the Precision bass and the body was Alder rather than Ash.
These are both excellent collector basses but they can be a challenge to photograph due to their size. I have found it best to have a camera capable of a 28mm equivalent lens to get a wide angel shot otherwise you may have to step back a bit further away than you might for a guitar.
