Jackson Guitars is now shipping the CBXNT IV Concert and CBXNT V Concert basses. Four and five-string models, respectively, the company describes the basses as perfect for metal or other styles that demand low, punchy bass. Jackson says the heart of the bass is in their electronics.
“The heart of this beast is a pair of Jackson High Output Humbucking Bass pickups mated to an active 3-band EQ circuit, adding punch, cut, rumble or grunt to your sound—shaping it with razor-sharp precision before it ever hits an amplifier,” they write.
Each model is built with neck-through construction with a basswood body, one-piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement, and a compound-radiused rosewood fingerboard. Other features include pearloid sharkfin inlays, a Jackson high mass bridge, and die-cast sealed tuners.
The Jackson CBXNT IV and V Concert Basses are available now with street prices of $549.99 and $599.99.
