The MB Yellow JB bass from Markbass brings vibrant style and flexible tone to bassists of all levels. Blending thoughtful design with high-quality components, this bass offers comfort, playability and versatility at an incredible value.

Versatile Tones With Dual Single-Coil Pickups

The JB bass is equipped with two punchy single-coil pickups, giving you a diverse tonal palette. Blend the pickups to sweep from sparkling treble to a growling midrange, perfect for emulating the sound of legends like Jaco Pastorius. The pickups deliver articulation and clarity whether you're playing fingerstyle or slapping the strings. Wherever your musical inspiration takes you, the JB bass delivers the tone to match.

Slim, Tapered Neck Profile for Comfort and Playability

The JB bass features a slim, tapered neck that feels fast and comfortable in your hands. The profile is narrower at the nut, making it easier to fret notes and chord shapes. As you move up the neck, it widens gradually to accommodate your hand position. This ergonomic design makes it easy to play quick riffs as well as access higher notes on the fingerboard. The slim neck reduces fatigue, allowing you to play your very best through even marathon practice sessions and performances.

Iconic Offset Body Balances Form and Function

The contoured offset body shape of the JB bass not only looks fantastic, its thoughtful design brings real benefits in comfort and playability. The double cutaway offers easy access to the highest frets, enabling you to explore the entire fingerboard. The contoured edges and forearm scoop keep the bass balanced against your body. Weighing just over eight pounds, the JB is lightweight enough for comfort over long gigs. The sleek offset shape looks right at home on stage under the spotlight.

Vibrant Yellow Finish Grabs Attention

The eye-catching MB Yellow finish gives the JB bass unmistakable visual appeal. The vibrant yellow pops against the black pickguard for high-contrast style. For players who want their instrument to make a bold visual statement, the JB delivers. Whether you're playing your first coffee shop gig or rocking a packed stadium, the JB bass commands attention.
