Comments about Jackson David Ellefson Signature Kelly Bird 4-String Electric Bass Maple Fingerboard:

Being a 25 year vet bassist, I've played a number of quality basses from Spector to ESP to Fender to Yamaha to Charvel to Ibanez to Gibson and this Jackson Kellybird takes a backseat to non of the above...I've played it through big Peavey, GK and Ampeg rigs and the sound is great through each one..the e.q allows for complete control and as you would expect, the EMG pickups are a godsend..There is neckdive, but that comes from this style bass whether it's the Kellybird, or Spector Rex or Gibson Thunderbird..they ALL do it. The neck is nice and maple fretboard is fast..I've used this live and on recordings for artists and it delivers..I'm surprised it is such a low costing bass, but then, that's Jackson..quality instruments at an affordable price..this bass is now in my top 2 along with my vintage Spector NS2 if that gives you any indication...I'll be picking up another one before too long and I'd recommend it to any rock/metal style player..although I haven't tried it in any country bands yet.

Comments about Jackson David Ellefson Signature Kelly Bird 4-String Electric Bass Maple Fingerboard:

Very nice put together bass. The 3 band eq for this thing is really hot. When you turn up the mid-range it is very distorted. This bass is also very top very. Not balanced well. But you usually have that when you have a funky shaped bass. All in all, i would suggest it for a megadeth fan or a kelly bird fan.
