The Fender Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass Fretless has a special commemorative Pastorius neck plate. Although this bass is fretless it has fretlines in the fingerboard - as Pastorius removed the frets from his own bass and filled the slots with filler before covering the fingerboard with marine epoxy. A interesting touch on this bass is the side dot position markers in line with the fretlines (to help position your fingers on the fretless fingerboard). It is supplied with a tortoiseshell pickguard which you can attach if you want to. Early models had rosewood fingerboards (like the original Pastorius bass) with optional Pau Ferro from 2001-2002 and from 2003 Pau Ferro was used exclusively.
