Versatile style and enormous sound collide in the all-new JS Series Spectra Bass JS2. The brand-new offset body style was designed with the artist in mind. The poplar body with large upper horn evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument, providing perfect balance by reducing neck dive for hours of comfortable playing.

A bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint design generates formidable sustain, while the speed neck contour and 12" radius laurel fingerboard (with 24 frets) make for lightning-fast playability.

The Spectra Bass JS2 provides a sound that is as unique as the bassist playing it. Whether it be funk, hard rock or gospel, a colossal Jackson J-style bridge pickup and P-style neck pickup deliver a range of punchy growls or lucid tones, while the hardtail bridge provides rock-solid stability, improved sustain and bolder timbre. Tone can be refined and tweaked with the blend, bass boost and volume controls (with a push/pull selector to bypass or engage the active circuit for the bass boost). 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.

Highly affordable, the 4-string Spectra Bass JS2 comes in an array of stunning finishes with black hardware and a Jackson 2x2 Gumby headstock with an understated J logo.

Closest StoreCalgary Chinook, Alberta
Fret ends were a little rough out of the box, and there's a little bit of neck dive, but those are both pretty easy fixes. I got the metallic blue model, looks really nice, contours were comfortable and clean, no scratches or mistakes in the finish. Neck was straight and the neck profile was very playable (although a little thinner than a typical bass neck), the upper frets were easily accessible right up to the 24th. Pretty light weight too. For 280$, it's a great option for beginners or intermediates looking for something good quality that's not gonna break their wallet (like myself).
