    I just checked out that "modern electric bass" video, and he's playing Niama.. Then he jams with himself.. He has his fretted fender with the maple board, and this other crazy looking bass.. It's obviously a botiquie, but I can't tell who made it.. Does anyone know?

    That is a good example that it's the player that brings the tone out of the bass more than anything.
    No matter what bass Jaco is playing it still sounds like Jaco!!!!!

    Jerry's Abe Rivera fretless has since been fretted. I got to play it a few times while studying with Jerry here in NY and I was always amazed at how good he could make it sound. Although, he's a seriously funky player so I imagine he could make anything sound great!
