Jackson

Description

Versatile style and enormous sound collide in the all-new JS Series Spectra Bass JS23. 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 12” radius bound laurel fingerboard with 24 frets sits atop the bolt-on maple neck, which features a scarf joint design and speed neck contour.

The Spectra Bass JS23 also provides a sound that is as unique as the bassist playing it. Whether it be funk, hard rock or gospel, a colossal Jackson J-style bridge pickup and P-style neck pickup deliver a range of punchy growls or lucid tones, while a HiMass bridge provides rock-solid stability, improved sustain and bolder timbre.

Tone can be refined and tweaked with the blend, bass boost and volume controls (with a push/pull selector to bypass or engage the active circuit for the bass boost). 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 4-string Spectra Bass JS23 comes in Red Stain or Walnut Stain with black hardware and a black unique Jackson 2x2 headstock with an understated J logo. Case sold separately.
