Designed in conjunction with one of the founding fathers of thrash metal -- highly acclaimed bassist David Ellefson of Megadeth -- the Jackson X Series Signature David Ellefson Concert Bass CBX V 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 five-string 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. Designed for highly technical lightspeed playing, the 12-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard flattens out as you move up the neck for increased playing comfort and speedy articulation.

An earth-shaking pair of EMG HZ40 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 neck pickup for a touch of warmth, or bring up the bridge pickup for more cut. The Jackson HiMass 5-string bridge sharpens your notes -- attack for extra punch and clarity, granting enhanced sustain without significantly altering the bass' fundamental tone.

Available in Quicksilver or Satin Black, this low-end leviathan bass read more proudly displays Jackson's distinctive style; all-black hardware, including everything from the bridge to the Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines, durable gloss finish, pearloid sharkfin neck inlays, single-ply white neck binding and Jackson's signature pointed 5-in-line headstock along with a silver "Fallout" logo and Ellefson's signature embossed on the truss rod cover.
