I thought I had posted again here but hadn't.

I found another post, but rather than resuscitate it I will post that info here:

Barrow's bass in the other discussion was named as a 77/78 fretless gibson ripper.

This info corroborates what is on Barrows own website.

And in that other thread people start speculating that Barrow's fretless toured with him with Zappa.

It may have, but I have reason to believe the bass he lists on his site was not the same bass. Maybe he liked the sound and bought a fretless one like it? Maybe he de-fretted his? Whatever it is, on Circus Krone '78 video his bass is clearly fretted,
as is his bass here:

By 79 he was on the Fender Jazz for Joe's Garage, and in the Paris 1980 video.

Jeff Simmons:
1970, Fender Precision or Telecaster, amp unknown

In some of the Tele bass concert shots, Jeff is clearly playing through an Acoustic amp w/ 18" folded horn cabinet. I also see a Sunn behind him in other shots.
