So I was Christmas shopping for my kids this evening at GC and I see this beat up fretless on the wall with a $3k price tag -- the so-called Jaco Relic from the Fender Custom Shop. Didn't really want to play it, but I guess the devil made me do it. Man, this thing really blew me away. The neck was absolutely gorgeous -- smoothest, finest jazz neck I've ever played. Tone was beautiful as well. Really -- this was by far the finest 4-string fretless I've ever played? What's the word on these? Are they the same as the other Jaco models with $1500 worth of distressing? Is it all a lot of marketing hype? (I know the answer on this last one is no, since I played it -- so maybe the question is "how much of this is marketing hype"?) Do these things seem to hold their value? It's hard to imagine being tempted by a $3k bass off the wall at GC, but if I wasn't already broke from Christmas I definitely would have been.
