    Nearly flawless, not much to add. Would buy another in a heartbeat. Oh wait, I bought the red one too, so I guess I did!

      Comments about Jackson JS3 Concert Bass with Quilted Maple Top:

      I just picked this up the other day, and I can't put it down. Plays like butter, looks great, sounds great. A little fret buzz but that is because I have not played in years and I need to build up my fretting strength, the action on the bass is very nice. I played the red and blue models, and I prefer the red one but that is personal preference. I completely recommend this bass for any use. The 3-band eq is nice, but the treble cannot be turned up all the way because it produces a slight hiss in the headphones, which I presume would be heard through an amp also. But notch it back just a little and this bass is very quiet. I used to play passive pickups so these actives are quite a treat. You can dial in a lot of sounds, but I will keep my effects pedal just because. The stock strings work well, but I am loading it with solid black DR strings because it will look sick!

        Christmas gift to the Misses. This thing is a real bang for the buck guitar. Great tone with multiple tone options. Light weight and amazing craftsmanship.

          Comments about Jackson JS3 Concert Bass with Quilted Maple Top:

          I noticed there wasnt a review for this guitar so i figured id go ahead and add one. I played this recently in a local GC for about 2hours. I came in for a jazz bass, played one for 5 minutes then picked up the jackson. The range of tones you can have for this bass with the eq knobs alone is extensive. This bass can cover pretty much any sound your looking for. Its been great for funk and jazz, as well as rock, blues, folk, and metal. I play different generes and find myself switching basses quite often. VERY happy to have a bass that can "do it all" and do it well. Never wanted a jackson bass until I picked this model up. Very pleased. only reason i gave it a 4 out of 5 is cause i havent played it for that long and dont know how it holds up after its worn in after time.
