Jackson CBXNT IV and V Concert Basses Now Available

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.

I own the Cbxnt V snow white model, if you give it a proper setup and new strings then it’s a fantastic bass, I find it a little more playable than my Rickenbacker. (Two extremely different beasts though) I recommend it if you’re on the fence.
