The SBXQ V provides a full-sonic spectrum for even the most versatile and progressive bassists. Dual passive medium-output humbucking pickups create a dynamic foundation with punch, power and note articulation. Wide-ranging tonal command comes from a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, 3-band active EQ, blend control and volume control with push/pull selector to bypass or engage active circuit for the 3-band EQ. The push/pull selector eliminates the risk of losing sound due to a dead battery. A quick pull on the volume knob bypasses the active circuit, making it easy to regain sound from the bass without the use of battery power.
This five-string, 35”-scale bass also features a HiMass hardtail bridge that enhances sustain and improves note attack. Budget friendly and loaded with value, the X Series Spectra Bass SBXQ V comes in stage-conquering Transparent Black Burst with a unique 3x2 black headstock with understated “J” logo and black hardware.
With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson X Series Spectra Bass SBXQ V takes the adventurous player on a bold bass odyssey, launching a commanding all-new entry in Jackson’s formidable neck-through-body bass lineup.
