The Jackson X Series Spectra Bass SBX IV electric bass guitar is ready to take center stage. This four-string bass has an offset poplar body with a larger upper horn that distributes weight evenly for perfect balance and comfort during extended playing sessions. The graphite-reinforced maple neck extends through the body for increased sustain and is topped with a 12"–16" compound radius laurel fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets for fast, fluid playing.

Dual Humbuckers Deliver a Spectrum of Tones

The SBX IV is equipped with a pair of passive medium-output humbucking pickups that provide a dynamic tonal foundation with punch, power and clear note articulation. A two-way toggle switch enables pickup coil-splitting for single-coil-like tones. An active 3-band EQ, blend control and volume control with push/pull selector give players a wide range of tonal control to shape their perfect bass sound. The push/pull selector bypasses the active circuit to prevent signal loss if the 9V battery dies during a performance.

Rock-Solid Bridge Enhances Sustain

Jackson's HiMass hardtail bridge enhances sustain and improves attack. The bridge's solid construction helps the SBX IV withstand the rigors of touring and performance. Its adjustable saddles provide precise intonation for optimal playability up and down the neck.

Modern Style and Incomparable Value

The Jackson X Series Spectra Bass SBX IV combines cutting-edge design with professional performance features at an unbeatable price. Its unique offset poplar body is available in high-visibility Neon Orange and Satin Graphite finishes that are sure to make a bold statement on stage. A distinctive 2x2 black headstock with understated "J" logo completes the modern rock image.
