    what fretless basses do you recommend in this price range. Im looking for a 4 string that can get a tone close to jaco's.

    EDIT: I also see you're in st. kitts. Maybe we can meet somewhere, and i'll let you try out my Standard jazz. It's amazing.

    Anything with passive jazz style pickups, roundwounds and low action should do the trick. The rest is in the fingers, honestly.
