Versatile style and enormous sound collide in the all-new Jackson JS Series Spectra Bass JS3Q.

The brand-new offset body style was designed with the artist in mind. The poplar body with quilt maple top features a large upper horn that evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument, providing perfect balance by reducing neck dive for hours of comfortable playing. A ­graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint design generates formidable sustain, while the speed neck contour and 12"-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard with 24 frets make for lightning-fast playability.

The Spectra Bass JS3Q provides a sound that is as unique as the bassist playing it. Whether it be funk, hard rock or gospel, dual passive Jackson medium-output humbucking pickups create a monstrous low-end growl, while a HiMass bridge provides rock-solid stability, improved sustain and bolder tone. Tone can be further refined and tweaked with a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, 3-band EQ (active only), blend control and volume control (with push/pull selector to bypass or engage the active circuit for the 3-band EQ). With the push/pull selector, you’ll never have to fear a battery running out and losing sound. A quick pull on the volume knob will bypass the active circuit, making it easy to regain sound from the bass without the use of battery power.

Offering more boom for your buck, the 4-string, 34"-scale Spectra Bass JS3Q comes in a vibrant Amber Blue Burst or Dark Sunburst finish with black nickel hardware and a unique Jackson 2x2 headstock with an understated J logo.

I would buy thi is Bass again


I use this bass in my man cave. I used to have a hagstrom Coronado IV. when i played professionally. I retired that bass in 1981. I haven't Played since then. Until i tried this Jackson JS3Q. The neck is almost as slender as my (Hag). I think the JS3Q is a nice studio Bass, once i get used to playing music again I might try the 5 string.



A lot of bass for a little price


Jackson has really built a name for themselves. The Spectra bass is the 2nd one I own and they are top quality instruments that I would stand up against any much higher priced bass.
