A jazz bass has a narrower fingerboard and 2 unjoined pickups, a p-bass has a fatter fingerboard and bigger body and gives a fatter sound.

Mark plays a P-bass and tom doesn`t play guitar

It has to do with actual construction (as noted above), but also often refers to the pickups.

Jazz pickups are straight bars. P pickups are like 2 pickups offset and glued together.

Most basses have a P style nearer the neck, and a J style closer to the bridge. The different styles of pickup grab different tones.

you guys also forgot to mention the body shape... jazz has a offset body, very comfortable, which is just as well as all the ones i have played are heavy! and mark of blink182 plays a custom jazz bass with a single p-bass pickup and a p-neck.
