IYG’s Phat Jaco II Echoes Jaco’s Bass Of Doom!

A fretless thumper, Phat Jaco II has a touch of modern growl!

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.
