New Gear: Jackson Concert Bass CBXNT DX V and the Spectra Bass SBX IV…
X Series Concert™ Bass CBXNT DX V
The all-new Jackson® X Series Concert™ Bass is a highly versatile bass designed to bring the thunder to your music. Upgraded electronics, classic fast, brutal style and efficient playability make this entry into the lineup a fundamental force to be reckoned with. Perfect for rock or metal—or other styles that demand low, punchy bass—this instrument is an unbelievable value.
This 35”-scale bass pairs a poplar body with a graphite-reinforced neck-through-body design that generates formidable sustain, while the speed maple neck contour, 12″-16″ compound radius bound laurel fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets make for lightning-fast playability. The heart of this five-string beast is a Jackson J-style bridge pickup and Jackson P-style neck pickup, mated to an active 3-band EQ circuit for adding punch, cut, rumble or grunt to your sound. A brand-new stylish chrome Jackson Bass Bacher V hardtail bridge enhances note attack and sustain without altering your carefully crafted tone. The sealed die-cast tuning machines keep the strings in tune no matter how hard you dig into them.
Available in Gloss Black and Snow White.
X Series Spectra Bass SBX IV
With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson® X Series Spectra Bass takes the adventurous player on a bold bass odyssey, launching a commanding all-new entry in Jackson’s formidable neck-through-body bass lineup. The offset Spectra Bass body style was innovatively designed with the gigging musician in mind. Its nyatoh body has a larger upper horn that evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument for perfect balance and playing comfort. The graphite-reinforced through-body maple neck with scarf joint creates formidable sustain, with a speed neck contour, 12″-16″ compound radius laurel fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets for superior playability.
The SBX IV provides a full-sonic spectrum for even the most versatile and progressive bassists. Dual passive medium-output humbucking pickups create a dynamic foundation with punch, power and note articulation. Wide-ranging tonal command comes from a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, 3-band active EQ, blend control and volume control with push/pull selector to bypass or engage active circuit for the 3-band EQ. The push/pull selector eliminates the risk of losing sound due to a dead battery. A quick pull on the volume knob bypasses the active circuit, making it easy to regain sound from the bass without the use of battery power.
This four-string bass also features a HiMass™ hardtail bridge that enhances sustain and improves attack.
Available in Gloss Black and Matte Army Drab
