Jackson JS3V Spectra Electric Bass, 5-String

Versatility and monstrous sound collide with this Jackson JS3V Spectra 5-string, loaded with a pair of passive, medium-output humbuckers and a HiMass bridge.
The Jackson JS Series Spectra Bass JS3V is a 5-string leviathan instrument where versatile style and enormous sound collide.

The poplar body with large upper horn evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument, providing perfect balance by reducing neck dive for hours of comfortable playing. A graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint design generates formidable sustain, while the speed neck contour and 12"-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard (with 24 frets) make for lightning-fast playability.

The Spectra Bass JS3V provides a sound that is as unique as the bassist playing it. Whether it be funk, hard rock or gospel, dual passive Jackson medium-output humbucking pickups create a monstrous low-end growl, while a HiMass bridge provides rock-solid stability, improved sustain and bolder tone. Tone can be further refined and tweaked with a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, 3-band EQ (active only), blend control and volume control (with push/pull selector to bypass or engage the active circuit for the 3-band EQ). With the push/pull selector, you'll never have to fear a battery running out and losing sound. A quick pull on the volume knob will bypass the active circuit, making it easy to regain sound from the bass without the use of battery power.

"Jackson 5 String Spectra Bass"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Outstanding bass for the money. Comfortable to play & the thin neck feels great. Especially after I ightly sanded it with 1500 grit sandpaper for a sliky smooth feel. Tonal options are extensive. I own 4 of these basses. Love 'em.
