    A Tribute to a bass virtuoso!

    Fender Jaco Pastorius Fretless Jazz BassPublished on 10/04/11 at 08:20
    This is a USA-made Fender Artist Series Jaco Pastorius Jazz bass. Modeled after Jaco's own Sixties Jazz, this fretless features a lined Pau Ferro Fingerboard on a rock maple neck, Alder body, sixties style truss rod adjustment, Jaco neck plate, knurled Precison bass knobs, two American Vintage Jazz pickups and an American Vintage bridge and reverse tuning machines. Volume controls are your standard Jazz bass controls of Volume, Volume, Tone. Finish is a flawless 3-tone sunburst that shows lovely grain beneath. American Vintage basses are the top-of-the-line Fenders before you get into the Custom Shop price range. Includes a G&G Vintage case.

American Vintage basses are the top-of-the-line Fenders before you get into the Custom Shop price range. Includes a G&G Vintage case.

    UTILIZATION

    The sixties jazz bass is one of the most iconic basses in history, and when playing this re-issue, it is easy to see why. Ease of operation and ease of play is at a maximum. Go from a full on upright bass sound to a burpy jazz tone with the twist of a knob. Jaco's tone is EMBEDDED in this bass, and it becomes obvious the more and more you play this instrument. Nice and thick mids, warm lows and a crisp top end makes this Jazz a winner. This particular one weighs in under nine pounds as well! The jazz neck is amazingly comfortable for most people, with a 1.5 inch nut width, exceptionally fast. Flatwounds will give you a phenomenally mellow, warm upright sound with this one!

    SOUNDS

    Through a Gallien-Krueger 1001 RBII and an Ampeg SVT Classic, this bass shines, but if you want the full on Jaco tone, you should run it through an SVT Tube head. Incredibly warm and useful for just about any style of music!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Fit and finish of Artist/American Vintage basses are phenomenal. You really can't go wrong with a bass from those series of Fenders. This one is a dream come true for any Jaco-lover. If you want a fretless and can shell out the cash for it, then this is a viable option. If you need more tonal options than a standard jazz, then this bass may not be for you, but if you are looking for a Vintage styled, Vintage tone-filled, fretless Jazz Bass, then Fender's Artist Series Jaco Pastorius Tribute is a great way to go.

    handle stocky, c shape of the classic Jazzbass,
    pau ferro affects freight with 20 returned.
    mcaniques inverss vintage, vintage bridge, chrome knob type and precision.
    2 passive electronic vintage microphones Jazzbass volume set, easel and tone as usual ..

    UTILIZATION

    Ergonomics, no surprise, is a Jazzbass all there is more standard neck but not know what to expect qd it comes to JB ..

    SOUNDS

    Trs versatile, I use it in jazz, fusion, rock, .. it goes everywhere!
    Every good potential level sound, selling grain, softness and prcis a time! (Neck pickup and suddenly the tone 3 / 4)
    is a Jazzbass, no surpise and it's a fretless so the sound is right in Jaco, .. but not touching .. pany and with the less ..!
    A good dose of patience and a good persvrence rglage and bass sings almost alone!
    Small snag at nut, a small tower at the maker will win pe;
    It is mounted with Flatwound strings that are taking a bcp larger than a normal nut like the 45-105 is too hollowed and empty strings frieze ..
    (Thank you for this idegnial fender!)
    Perso, I want to replace the bridge (vintage) by a good big badass III with string-through body .. (more can a medium, more sustain and more attack!)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I control the eyes and ears closed in a shop without having tried, dlais wait 3 months minimum as no stock (even at the supplier), I have for several weeks now and am more satisfied! (I think even more APRS stint at the maker ..) Let's go for a long way together ..
    report quality price, you pay the accessories (flightcase and everything in it) but it also pays the quality of the woods! which is not at all ngligeable!
    Now to be completely objective, even when there are some that are a little dtails default for an instrument of this price .. a remake, I'll do I do not regret my choice at all but my next stage will be a fretless at the machining end dessu ..!
