Fender Jaco Pastorius Fretless Jazz Bass

Jaco Pastorius single handedly transformed the role of the bassist and the voice of the instrument in the band.  Blending rock, R&B, jazz, and Caribbean styles Jaco redesigned the musical landscape with his approach to bass guitar and soloing.  This bass preserves the memory of the legendary bassist, and puts the power of a versatile instrument in your hands to explore!


Fender Jaco Pastorius Fretless Jazz Bass quick look:


  • The sound you expect from a Jaco bass
  • Playability; quick and buttery
  • A fantastic tribute to the greatest bass player ever, period!

The sound you expect from a Jaco bass

The Jaco growl is present and accounted for!  2 Vintage style Jazz pickups grab all the dynamics from your fingers, and the neck is void of any dead spots.  The master tone pot is responsive and makes it easy to find your voice on an already fantastic sounding instrument!

Playability; quick and buttery

The necks feels oh, so right with no friction on your hand when sliding.  Low action out of the case will help you to play those quick notes on Donna Lee with ease.  

A fantastic tribute to the greatest bass player ever, period!

This bass offers authentic tone and design with painstaking detail to re-create the Jaco sound and feel.  Jaco changed the world with his sound, how will you?  

If you want that Jaco sound, acquire the Jaco Bass!
