Developed with Jackson, this five-string electric bass has a custom design optimized for the needs of today's performing and recording bassists. The resonant poplar body and graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck generate formidable sustain. The custom neck profile and compound 9"–16" radius maple fingerboard offer incredible comfort and playability.

Slim, Lightweight Poplar Body With Elegant Contours for Playing Comfort

The resonant poplar body keeps weight to a minimum for hours of fatigue-free playing. Its slim proportions and thoughtfully sculpted edges nestle comfortably against your body. Three stylish soundholes let the bass resonate freely. The deep cutaway grants effortless access to the highest notes on the fingerboard. On stage or in studio, this lightweight bass feels fantastic to play.

Fast Maple Neck and Compound Radius Fingerboard for Smooth Playability

The graphite-reinforced maple neck provides stability and sustain. Its smooth satin finish and custom profile make for fast, fluid playing. The compound radius fingerboard has a tighter curve toward the nut for comfortable chording and a flatter curve toward the body for bends and solos. Jumbo frets give you that slick, fast feel. Every design element of the neck aims to make your performance seamless.

Custom Jackson BBE J-Style Pickups Dialed to Perfection

The heart of your tone comes from custom Jackson BBE J-style pickups, voiced to Adam Blackstone's exact specifications for superior sound. They capture the articulation and dynamics you need, matched to an active 3-band EQ circuit to shape your ideal tone. Dial in the perfect amount of low-end punch, scooped mids and crisp, clear highs for any venue.

Built for Comfort, Crafted for Stage and Studio

Designed for hours of comfortable playing, the Jackson Adam Blackstone "Gladys" Pro Series signature concert bass features a custom neck profile with a 9"–16" compound radius fingerboard. The slim profile maple neck with jumbo frets lets your fingers fly up and down the neck with ease. The 34" scale length provides defined note attack and excellent intonation.
