Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Jackson JS3"
Overall: This bass plays well and sounds great. The only flaws are the frets are not dressed well on the edges and can be kind of sharp. Although the Bass did arrive Beat up, like it had been drop, and the paint is chipped on the back, bottom of the bass, it does no effect the playability of it. Overall a great bass for the money
Style of Music: Hard rock, Heavy Metal

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Jackson JS-3 trans black bass."
Sound: The dual humbuckers in this thing have a killer tone, I play heavy rock, and old school thrash. The growl from this thing negates the need for my overdrive pedal. I am seriously impressed! Feature: I like the on board 3 band eq, its passive but I think that's why I like it so much. I had to sail back the treble to half, because the growl became a bit to aggressive for my taste. But if your playing metal I suggest you give this Jackson a try. Ease of Use: Way easy to use. Incredibly easy to play. The dual radius neck is so smooth and fast. Quality: I was really surprised how well this Indian built Jackson was built. I went over everything before setting it up. A simple truss rod adjustment, some mild intonation adjusting and it was done. And the translucent black finish is awesome! Value: For $349, I am really happy. I like it better than my $1400 Carvin! Manufacturer Support: I have not had to deal with the Jackson support personnel, ever. This is my 3rd new Jackson. They just make quality gear! The Wow Factor: The wow factor for me is in the puck ups, and the finish. I love it. Overall: This thing is is killer! Great action, shredding tone, and a beautiful finish!
Style of Music: Hard rock, thrash.
