"A bass owned by classically trained bassist and concert promoter Rod Glaubman and played by Jaco Pastorius is being offered up at auction. We’re not sure we buy the whole story, but from what we’ve gathered, Jaco borrowed this bass frequently, and possibly modified it. As the story goes, Glaubman allowed some modifications, but stopped short of letting Jaco de-fret the bass. The bass is a 1960 Fender Jazz bass, purchased by Glaubman for $300 in 1970." http://www.notreble.com/buzz/2009/04/24/bass-played-by-jaco-pastorius-at-auction/more
