Jackson JS Series Spectra JS3Q Electric Bass

Versatile style and enormous sound collide in this bass! The Jackson JS Spectra bass features a quilt maple top, poplar body and comfortable upper horn.

Versatile style and enormous sound collide in the Jackson JS Series Spectra Bass JS3Q. The offset body style was designed with the artist in mind. The poplar body with quilt maple top features a large upper horn that 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 JS3Q 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.

I love this bass. I wasn't sure of the color at first but I like it it's different. Not just black for a change. When I changed the strings I found that I really like the headstock. Wasn't sure about that either cause I love the look of the Jackson headstock. But right outta the box the bass played great. Good action and a fast feel. I put flats on it right away. Not sure about those. My first time trying flats but they do help with bass buzz. This is the best Jackson bass I have ever played. I always upgrade the pickups but I won't need to with this one. It's sounds as good if not better than my p bass and my jazz bass and I put DiMarzio pickups in those. You can't find a better playing or sounding bass than this. Save yourself time and money. This is a great bass. Can't believe it doesn't cost twice as much. I've never tried to contact Jackson so I had to put something.
