Jackson Introduces JS Series Basses

Jackson Guitars has released the JS-series of Concert basses, consisting of three models: the JS2, JS3, and JS3V. The entry-level basses each feature 35″ scales, Indian cedro bodies, maple necks and Indian rosewood fingerboards that have 12″- 16″ compound radiuses for smooth playability.

The three basses are tiered in features – the JS2 is a 4-string passive bass, while the JS3 adds active electronics with an onboard 3-band EQ, and the JS3V adds a fifth string on top of that. Each model includes a pair of Jackson’s humbucking pickups and their high mass bridge.
