My $0.02 worth.
The true mark of a Bass God is someone who comes up with a sound or style that is instantly recognizable and something you want to hear over and over again.
To me, Jaco Pastorius and James Jamerson are Bass Gods - to be listened to, studied and copied.
You can ask for a "Jaco" style or a "Motown" style and most bass players know what you are talking about.
They blazed the trail and have been widely copied...but they got there first.
BTW, I really like Pino also - very distinctive sound.
