Fender Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass Fretless Pau Ferro Fingerboard 3-Color Sunburst

The Fender Jaco Pastorius Fretless Jazz Bass PF, 3-Color Sunburst is the signature bass guitar of one of the most iconic bass guitarists of the '70s and '80s. Jaco Pastorius transitioned seamlessly between multiple musical genres, from jazz to funk, rock, blues, latin, and beyond. His unmistakable sound and style helped redefine the role of the bassist, and he left a profound legacy of recorded music - all featuring the iconic sound of the fretless Fender Precision Bass. Jaco's signature bass guitar is designed to offer the same wide range of tones and smooth playing feel as his own guitar, letting you traverse the genres with the distinct sound and playing-feel of a fretless bass. With a vintage-inspired select alder body, maple neck, pau ferro fingerboard, and nitrocellulose finish, the Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass evokes a classic aesthetic and tonality. The dual Jazz Bass single coil pickups (USA Vintage) give a versatile range of sounds, while the vintage-style hardware appointments enhance the guitar's stand-out looks. If your fretless playing is not bound by any one genre, the Jaco Pastorius signature bass will help you craft your own signature tone.

Stand-Out Good Looks of a Select Alder Body

The select alder body gives a bright and resonant tonality along with an elegant visual grain-pattern, revealed gracefully by the 3-colour sunburst finish. The body features the classic Jazz Bass outline which has given countless players a comfortable playing experience, whether stood up or sat down. The body is finished in nitrocellulose, just like vintage Fender guitars - a finish renowned for its ability to let the woods breathe and resonant more fully, along with a subtle low-sheen unlike modern high-gloss finishes.  

Smooth Maple Neck with Pau Ferro Fingerboard

The maple neck with nitrocellulose finish gives a smooth playing feel, sitting comfortably in the left hand with the modern "C"-shaped profile. The nitro finish will age gracefully and feel softer and smoother the more you play it. The pau ferro fingerboard is urethane-coated for an incredibly-smooth fretless playing feel, while the slab-cut design ensures maximum sustain and resonance - a particularly important feature when there are no frets. The neck features Jaco's iconic fret line markers to help you track your intonation when playing slick-sounding fretless riffs and solos.

American Vintage Single Coil Jazz Bass Pickups

American Vintage single-coil Jazz Bass pickups give a low-output sound with the iconic versatility of the Jazz Bass guitar. Mounted in the neck and bridge positions, each pickup has its own volume control, so you can achieve the perfect blend of bridge-position bite with neck-position warmth. Whether playing chords, single line solos, or slick riffs, you'll find the exact sound you need with these two pickups and master tone control.

Classic Hardware Appointments

A vintage 4-saddle bridge gives the Jaco bass full string-adjustability, along with a resonant platform to transfer the maximum string vibrations to the body. Reverse tuners are a unique touch which gives this guitar a unique Jaco tuning feel, while a Deluxe Brown Hardshell Case ensures you'll be ready to get gigging straight away.
