Jaco Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by James reeve5, May 15, 2003.


  1. This isn't a bass that I am selling, but someone better buy it...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2530844053&category=38079

    I saw it on E-Bay after I placed my order for my "Super Jaco." A fretless Modulus Genesis VJ with rear routed controls, sunburst body, Maple fretboard (not Jaco...more a "Jameso" preference), villex pickups, badass II bridge and a satin finish (another Jameso preference). Modulus is even leaving the plate underneath controls on for me!
    It's got the characteristics of the Jaco relic bass, without having the stigma of being an "exact replica."

    Note: Diehard bass people on here, please don't give me crap for the "Jameso" references... It is all in good fun. :p

    Does anyone know if that thing is for real, what is in it (PUP's, etc), or how it compares with the regular Jaco and/or relic. I hadn't heard of any limited edition Jaco custom shop basses being made in 1990.

    I have been trying to get one of the Jaco Artist series basses, but can't find one anywhere. Every two weeks, Musician's Friend pushes back the availability date by another two weeks.

    I own a production Jaco, gotta say its starting to become my main axe even though I'm not much of a fretless player. I don't know about the CS ones but if they're anything like the the production one, its SWEET! About not being to find a Jaco production bass, go to your local Sam Ash (maybe Guitar Center), the guys at my local Sam Ash called in to Fender for some strange parts for my bass that they didn't have and they didn't even charge me extra for custom ordering...
