Monstrously powerful with an unmistakably explosive tone, Jackson electric basses dominate like no other. Founded in 1980 when Randy Rhodes approached founder Grover Jackson, asking him to help him reinvent the traditional Flying-V style of guitar, Jackson blew the doors off of Randy’s expectations and have been industry innovators ever since. Famous for their JS series and their Artist Signature series, Jackson electric basses get you ready to take every stage by storm. Distinct in design, if you’re looking for something different to give you an edge on stage, definitely go with the JS3V Concert 5-String Bass or the JS3 Kelly Bird IV Electric Bass. Instantly recognizable, each of these basses feature Jackson High Output humbucking pickups, a basswood construction, and a High Mass bridge allow you to play fast and wild, while making sure every note rings out as smoothly as the one before it. Effortlessly playable and surprisingly affordable, the JS series was made for creative bassists.
On the other hand, if you have a specific Jackson musician you want to sound like the Artist Signature series is the best place to start. Basses like the John Campbell Bass Trans Black, inspired by the Lamb of God bassist, and the Dave Ellefson Signature CBXV 5-String X Series Electric Bass Guitar, a replica of the Megadeth thrasher’s own instrument, allow you to get closer to your metal hero’s personal sound and style. Using only top-quality materials, and with custom features unique to these specific instruments, there’s nothing else out there like these Artist Signature series basses.
Used mainly by metal and heavy rockers, Jackson has left more than a mark on the world of music. If you’re looking to stand out when you’re on stage or in the studio, Jackson has your back with a lineup that’s ready to make every performance a memorable one.
