Five Strings of Thrash Metal Bass Tone

Plug in the Jackson David Ellefson CBXV electric bass, and prepare for some serious earth-shaking tone. This Megadeth-approved 5-string bass features an alder body in a concert bass shape, a bolt-on quartersawn maple neck cut in a special profile, an oiled rosewood compound-radius fingerboard spanning 21 jumbo frets in length, an EMG HZ40N humbucker at the neck, an EMG HZ40B humbucker at the bridge, a pristine EMG BEQ3 active preamp with three-band EQ, and a secure High Mass V bridge anchoring all five strings down. The "CB" in CBXV stands for "Concert Bass," and this is bad boy is a version of Jackson's classic Concert Bass model -- hot-rodded and modded Dave Ellefson-style.

The Powerful Punch of Alder

Alder made its name in the tonewood game with Fender guitars throughout the '50s and '60s. It yields a clear and well-balanced tone with careful attention the lows, mids, and higher frequencies. It's a medium-weight wood, so it won't weigh you down to the floor the way heavier woods like mahogany would -- a nice bonus if you like to move around on stage.

Special Profile Maple Neck

Getting five strings to stretch comfortably across a bass neck is no easy endeavor. The maple neck on this bass is cut into a special profile that makes each string along each fret easy to reach. This melodious appendage also boasts an oiled rosewood fingerboard that's buttery to the touch, and a comfortable action across all 21 jumbo frets makes for an addicting and speedy experience.

EMG HZ40N and HZ40B Humbucker Pairing

Your Jackson David Ellefson CBXV electric bass is equipped with an EMG HZ40N at the neck and an EMG HZ40B at the bridge. Both of these baddies fuel your tone with a force David Ellefson is proud to be associated with. This axe's EMG BEQ3 active preamp dishes out a clear and articulate sound, and three band EQ control allows you to fine-tune your signal to your heart's desire. Independent volume controls allow you to find the right blend of each pickup.
