After spending countless years on the road and in the recording studio David has collaborated with Jackson Guitars to develop the signature Kelly Bird bass guitars to his professional specifications ensuring it delivers a unbeatable tone, uncompromising finish and optimal reliability to provide an premium 4-String bass guitar that can survive even the extremist of touring schedules.

Incorporating a powerful pair of EMG HZ35 soapbar pickups which utilize passive circuitry with dual coil design to optimize output whilst minimizing noise levels the Jackson Ellefson Kelly Bird IV produces a warm tonality with a smooth attack and defined high range response.

The Jackson Ellefson Kelly Bird IV features Jackson's unique and innovative compound-radius fretboard design, in which the fretboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut providing a smooth playability for a range of playing styles whilst the flattened heel allows sensational accessibility for high range riffs.
