Looking for Jaco
By: Charlie from Lake Tahoe, NV
Your general opinion of this product.
I used to have a Ken Smith fretless 6 string bass. It was a monster sounding bass. But after 10 years with it I could never really get the "Jaco" sound and attack. So I went from an exotic $4,000 bass to an "off the rack" Fender. (FYI, to make sure I would be happy, before selling my Smith, I bought a Squire fretless Jazz as an experiment, which I sold when I got the American Fender version. The Fender Jazz is considerably better than the Squire, in most regards.)I miss looking at the Ken Smith bass, but I don't miss playing it at all, now that I have my Fender.
