With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson X Series Spectra Bass SBX V 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 Poplar 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 fretboard and 24 jumbo frets for superior playability.
The SBX V 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 five string, 35" scale bass also features a HiMass hardtail bridge that enhances sustain and improves note attack.
Featuring a unique 3 x 2 black headstock with an understated “J” logo, this budget-friendly SBX V comes in stage-conquering Electric Blue finish with black hardware.
