Jackson JS3Q Spectra V 5 string bass in green-ish Alien Burst

Chris (MD, Guitar Mania) says:
“Great value bass with what feels like class leading quality. Love the eye catching greeny yellow ‘Alien Burst’ finish which looks very cool on the figured maple top. The playability is great too and the active EQ gives it a real thump when needed. Although maybe aimed at rockers, it’s tonal variety makes it suitable for most styles. And… don’t forget all our instruments are lovingly set up in-house by the LEGENDARY Jon for added peace of mind ;o)”

More info:

The Jackson® JS Series Spectra Bass JS3QV is an all-new 5-string leviathan instrument where versatile style and enormous sound collide.

The brand-new offset body style was designed with the artist in mind. The poplar body with quilt maple top features a large upper horn that evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument, providing perfect balance by reducing neck dive for hours of comfortable playing. A graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint design provides rock-solid reliability, while the speed neck contour and 12″-16″ compound radius laurel fingerboard (with 24 frets) make for lightning-fast playability.

The Spectra Bass JS3QV provides a sound that is as unique as the bassist playing it. Whether it be funk, hard rock or gospel, dual passive Jackson medium-output humbucking pickups create a monstrous low-end growl, while a HiMass™ bridge provides enhanced stability, improved sustain and bolder tone. Tone can be further refined and tweaked with a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, 3-band EQ (active only), blend control and volume control (with push/pull selector to bypass or engage the active circuit for the 3-band EQ). 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.

Offering more boom for your buck, the 35”-scale Spectra Bass JS3QV comes in a vivid Alien Burst or Purple Phaze finish with black nickel hardware and a unique Jackson 3×2 headstock with an understated J logo
