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.

    Fantastic bass
    Got it at pawn shop 200
    Cleaned up set up
    Routes out an old 80s Charvel chainsaw case for it.
    Thing was a great buy.
    It’s been 5 months, and I have not seen any on eBay or reverb
    Hardly any pics online
    Was it only for one year?
    Seem like not many
