Jackson David Ellefson CBX IV Bass

Designed in conjunction with one of the founding fathers of thrash metal--highly acclaimed bassist David Ellefson of Megadeth--the 4-string David Ellefson CBX IV QS is a beast of a bass. Bearing his personal touches, packed with enormous Jackson sound and the hyper-fast playability required by the fleet-fingered bassist, this instrument is a force to be reckoned with.

Redesigned ergonomic contours provide the perfect platform for launching a musical assault-- the upper contour provides a comfortably stable anchor for pick or fingerstyle playing alike while the lower contour provides perfect balance when propped on a knee for monitor stands. The Jackson HiMass 4-string bridge sharpens your notes' attack for extra punch and clarity, granting enhanced sustain without significantly altering the bass' fundamental tone. An earth-shaking pair of EMG HZ35 active humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions provide plenty of girth and cut as an active 3-band EQ bolsters their native power, shaping and refining it for maximum impact and versatility. The blend knob allows you to mix the pickups to your taste--add more of the neck pickup for a touch of warmth, or bring up the bridge pickup for more cut. Designed for highly technical lightspeed playing, the 12"-16" compound radius rosewood fingerboard flattens out as you move up the neck for increased playing comfort and speedy articulation.

This bass proudly displays Jackson's distinctive style; all-black hardware, including everything from the bridge to the Jackson die-cast sealed tuning machines, durable gloss finish, pearloid sharkfin neck inlays, single ply white neck binding and Jackson's signature pointed 4-In-Line headstock along with an engraved "Radiation" logo and Ellefson's signature embossed on the truss rod cover. Only one instrument is hardcore enough to keep pace with Ellefson's technically demanding requirements--the Jackson David Ellefson CBX IV QS--and now it can be yours.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great quality bass"
Sound: The bass stays in tune , even after playing some fast thrash metal songs and pick ups dont make noise . Manufacturer Support: I emailed support for an owners manual you have to download it Overall: I purchased this bass 2 years ago the sound is great no buzzing the pick ups are crazy good. The neck doesnt have that buzzing like a lot of other bass guitars in this price range . Sounds best for rock metal but I tweek the EQ and slap and pull great bass .
Style of Music: Metal Funk, Rock
