Jaco Pastorius redefined the voice of the bass and the role of the bassist for generations of players, merging the worlds of R&B, rock, jazz, classical and Caribbean music and reshaping the musical landscape with his visionary approach to the instrument. And he did it all with a Fender Jazz Bass guitar. Pastorius' unmistakable voice and signature sound came from his mind, his hand and his sunburst fretless Jazz Bass, recreated here as the Fender Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass guitar. Features include an alder body, C-shaped maple neck with side dots centered on the fret lines, pau ferro fingerboard, vintage-style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups, vintage-style reverse tuners, knurled chrome Precision Bass knobs and commemorative Pastorius neck plate. Deluxe brown hard-shell case, strap and cable included.
