Jaco Pastorius Bass String Gauge

 

 

Jaco Pastorius was a beacon for generations of aspiring bass players, bridging the gaps between R&B, rock, jazz, classical and Caribbean music. He changed the musical world with his uncanny gift and visionary approach to the instrument, and he did it with one fundamental tool—a Fender Jazz Bass guitar.

The Jaco Pastorius Tribute Fretless Jazz Bass guitar features a select alder body, C-shaped maple neck with polyester-coated slab-cut pau ferro fingerboard, two vintage-style Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, knurled chrome Precision Bass control knobs, and a special Jaco tribute neck plate. In homage to a true and truly missed master of the instrument.
