With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson® X Series Spectra Bass SBXM V takes the adventurous player on a bold bass odyssey, launching a commanding all-new entry in Jackson’s formidable neckthrough-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 fingerboard and 24 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 3x2 black headstock with an understated “J” logo, the budget-friendly SBX V comes in stage-conquering Electric Blue or Metallic Black finishes with black hardware.
