    This is a cool video, there're a few factual errors though.

    That's 8 minutes I'm glad I spent watching that.

    Awesome. Short and sweet, but a great look into the history of the low end!

    To demonstrate the transition from upright to the invention of the electric bass in the 50's, they use a jazz bass, and the man who really made it big was the great Mark Montgomery.

    Then they put the jazz bass away and demonstrate Jaco's fretless innovation with a Godin.

    That would be Monk Montgomery (and no I'm not being sarcastic). But later in his career he did switch to primarily playing the Jazz bass.

    I'm sure the guy played basses he actually owns rather than buying some just to make a youtube video with. It never says "this is the exact gear that this song was recorded on," just shows "electric bass" and "fretless," which the jazz and the Godin certainly are.
