pastorius overrated?

I think so, ive played a couple and it seems to have a strange volume control kind of like on to off in a slight touch also the sound wasnt even that great plus its ugly as hell. Is owning one just a status symbol or something or do i just have bad taste?

Are you talking about Jaco Pastorius as a player or his Fender signature bass?

Sounds like he's talking about the bass. Hopefully he realizes that Jaco Pastorius was a bassist and most people seeing 'Pastorius overrated' are going to think he's trying to take the air out of a classic bassist.

I don't see how Pastorius can be overrated. The guy did so much for bass.

Im pretty sure hes talking about the bass, also.. slating it, its a nice bass, and the title makes out as if he is saying jaco is overrated, which is obviously not the case, the guy invented fretless bass, brought harmonics into bass playing and got us all playing jazz lines (for those who have listened to his albums)..

I wish ihearthate was more clear about his topics..

You called it.

It's really too bad that people feel it is necessary to post without reading the thread beforehand. It would save us all tons of confusion and we wouldn't have to wade through pages of arguments based on one misinterpretation just so that we can read the 2 or 3 genuinely on topic posts ...

Speaking of on topics posts, I had better shut up now, since I've never played the bass.

Yes they sure are idiots for misunderstanding an extremely poorly worded statement.

Calm down, there was no need for the 'idiots' comment, next time PLEASE be clear about your topic, anyway the Jaco Pastorius Signature Fender Jazz Bass is pretty cool, ive heard good things about it, and the beaten up look isnt too bad, but thats just what i think, i havent played it yet, i would love too though..

what amp did you play it through IHH?

Well, i wouldnt expect most people on these forums to actually like jaco's songs, i think the only people on here who would like his songs are those people/bassists with an open mind about music and bass playing, i'd recommend the songs:

Portrait of tracy
Donna Lee
Teen Town
Birdland
Ocus Pocus
Come on, Come over..

Basically most of the self-titled album.

I doubt modern bass would be half what it is without what Jaco did.
Chromatic Fantasy ain't too shabby either
