Push your sound to the max. Dual Jackson high-output humbucking bass pickups give you enough power to shake the room. The colossal low end provided by these pickups gives you a deep and fat bass sound with plenty of punch. They also have clear highs and a solid midrange – allowing you to cut through in a band. Their high-output humbucking design gives you all the volume you need whilst eliminating hum. This is especially useful when cranking up the gain or playing at loud volumes on stage, making them ideal for heavy rock and metal.
Total tonal flexibility. With an active 3-band EQ, you can quickly and easily sculpt your sound. Full control is given over the bass, middle, and treble of the pickups - letting you change the sound of your bass to suit any situation. If you are playing on stage and you feel that you are lacking some mid-range bite, or if you are about to play a heavy riff and want some extra low end, you can instantly tweak your sound - without needing to adjust your amp. With an independent volume control for each of the 2 humbucking pickups, you can craft the perfect sound by blending the 2 pickups together - providing infinite tonal options. This is a versatile bass that can adapt to any situation.
If you have ever wanted to get lower and deeper bass tones, the JS3V Concert 5-String delivers. The extended range of this monstrous bass allows you to play lower notes than a standard 4-string, without down tuning. The 35" scale length gives improved string tension for less flabby lows - letting you achieve deeper and heavier riffs than you ever thought possible. Combined with the aggressive sound of the humbucking pickups, this bass will produce the explosive sound you are looking for.
Fast and smooth. Whether you want solid low-end riffs, or fast intricate solos, the Jackson JS3V Concert 5-String Bass provides exceptional playability. A compound radius amaranth fretboard allows for easy playing all the way down the neck. Being rounder at the nut makes powerful riffs easy to play, and by flattening the fretboard out closer towards the heel, shredding solos feel effortless. Combined with a smooth satin finished 1-piece maple neck, you will be able to slide to any of the 24 frets with ease - allowing you to reach your maximum playing potential.
