Has anyone bought a bass thru the Fender Custom Shop?

    I was looking on the Fender custom shop and was interested in their Jaco fretless reissue. I see they are quite expensive. Are they as good as they claim or should I try to buy a Jazz of that era? I notice that they sell the bass with scratches and all, is it very realistic or fake?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  2. i had a chance to play a jaco RI in my local guitar center. the physical appearance didn't really appeal to me, looked a little too vintage, almost as if it were a crappily done knock off fender. but the tone, that jaco tone made up for everything. a very easy bass to play, unless you take into account it being fretless. i loved the jaco sig, and if i were to lay down the cash for one, i'd probably get the non relic one.
