IYG’s Phat Jaco II echoes Jaco Pastorious’ classic Bass of Doom with a modern twist!
| We’ve already addressed the coolness of Jaco Pastorious. |
Phat Jaco II takes the fretless jazz bass design and incorporates a classic tortoise-shell pickguard and Masterbuilt Alnico V pickups with acrylic see-thru tops and embossed feather design. Now that’s funky!
The neck has a similarly chunky, half-Jazz/half-P-Bass feel.
