Pure Pastorius
Widely regarded as the world’s greatest electric bass player, Jaco Pastorius redefined the voice of the instrument and the role of the bassist, merging the worlds of R&B, rock, jazz, classical and Caribbean music and reshaping the musical landscape with his dazzling playing and visionary approach. And he did it all with a Jazz Bass. His unmistakable voice and signature sound came from his mind, his heart, his hands and his sunburst fretless Jazz Bass, recreated here with unmistakable look, tone and feel as the Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass.

    Special Lined Fretless Pau Ferro Fingerboard
    Special Lined Fretless Pau Ferro Fingerboard

    The fretless fingerboard of the Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass is fashioned from pau ferro, a South American tonewood with feel and sonic qualities similar to rosewood, and coated with urethane for durable performance. It is a "slab" fingerboard (meaning a flat joint with the maple neck rather than a curved joint) with a vintage-style 7.25" radius and 20 inlaid white fret line markers.
