Bearing Ellefson's personal touches, this monster bass is packed with enormous Jackson sound and the hyper-fast playability required by the fleet-fingered musician.

The poplar body features ergonomic contours that 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 through-body quartersawn maple neck features a scarf joint and graphite-reinforcement rods that protect against extreme environmental and climate changes.

Earth-shaking EMG P and EMG J pickups in the neck and bridge positions provide plenty of girth and cut. Dial in your thunderous bass tone with a three-way toggle switch, single volume control and two-band EQ for boosting treble and bass. The Jackson HiMass 4-string bridge sharpens your notes' attack read more for extra punch and clarity, granting enhanced sustain without significantly altering the bass' fundamental tone.

A force to be reckoned with, the X Series Signature David Ellefson 30th Anniversary Concert Bass CBX IV displays Jackson's distinctive style with an eye-catching Quicksilver finish, all-black hardware, including everything from the bridge to the Jackson sealed die-cast tuning machines, pearloid sharkfin neck inlays, and Jackson's signature pointed 4-in-line black headstock with white "Radiation" logo and Ellefson's signature embossed on the truss rod cover.
