The brand-new offset body style was designed with the artist in mind. The poplar body with large upper horn 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 JS3V 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.

Highly affordable, the 35"-scale Spectra Bass JS3V comes with black nickel hardware and a unique Jackson 3x2 headstock with an understated J logo.

Great bass



Great Price, Great Product. Would def recommend!


I chose this bass for the versatility it gives me. I play a range of music from Contemporary Christian to Country and Rock. I can get any kind of sound I want out of this bass. It came mostly setup from the factory. I only had to pretty much set the intonation. The balance is good and the price was great!



Fantastic bang for the buck!


I absolutely love the super thin neck and the jumbo frets. This is the most effortless to play and most fun to play bass that I've ever played. I can't stop playing it. My friends always want to play it. All my other basses are getting very jealous. I bought the the walnut stain color. I've gotten lots of comments about how handsome it looks. The build quality is very good. The 3-band active EQ works well and provides excellent tone control. The blend knob is nice (better than separate volume knobs for each pickup). The Jackson pickups are good quality and the coil split switch is awesome (selects growlier humbucker mode or cleaner single coil mode). And it's nice that you can just pull out on the volume knob to bypass the active EQ and run in passive mode if you want to - or if the battery ever dies at an inconvenient time (volume, blend, and coil tap switch still work in passive mode). These are new for 2019. Jackson deserves a round of applause - good job guys! CONS: It was totally NOT set up out of the box. It took me a couple of days of adjusting it and letting it settle before I got everything set up correctly (truss rod, string height / action, intonation, pickup height). If you can't do this yourself then plan on a couple of trips to a shop to get it done right. The strings that came with it were pretty low quality in my opinion. I put my favorite strings on mine (GHS Round Core Bass Boomers).
