    Special Lined Fretless Pau Ferro Fingerboard
    Special Lined Fretless Pau Ferro Fingerboard

    The fretless fingerboard of the Jaco Pastorius Jazz Bass is fashioned from pau ferro, a South American tonewood with feel and sonic qualities similar to rosewood, and coated with urethane for durable performance. It is a “slab” fingerboard (meaning a flat joint with the maple neck rather than a curved joint) with a vintage-style 7.25” radius and 20 inlaid white fret line markers.
