    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.

    Fender Standard Jazz. you can't go wrong.


    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.
  3. My vote is going for a Carvin B4 with a few upgrades

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