    Hey MichiBass,
    Jaco's Fretless jazz bass was a 1962. His "main Fretted" jazz, was a 1960. Jaco had,a lot of JB's;over one hundred according to "The Extraordinary And Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius",But These two I just mentioned are the famous ones, heard on all the "Weather Report" Albums. All of the periodicals, and books that I've read, indicate that these two basses were never recovered; after being "lost/stolen" from Jaco, "Shortly before he entered Bellevue", in 1986.:crying:
