The brand-new 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 JS3QV 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.

Offering more boom for your buck, the 35"-scale Spectra Bass JS3QV now comes in a vivid Alien Burst finish with black nickel hardware and a unique Jackson 3x2 headstock with an understated J logo.

Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreNorth York, Ontario
I went to L & M this evening to buy some pedal accessories. Walking around in the bass section, Joe, The North York bass specialist recommended this bass. After seconds of playing it, it felt amazing. We plugged it into a Burgantino rig and it sounded perfect. Such a diverse bass with amazing tones and feel. Perfect for any gigging bassist on a tighter budget.
