Jackson Guitars Unveils Pro Series Spectra Basses

Jackson Pro Series Spectra Bass SBP IV Transparent Black Burst

Jackson Guitars has expanded their bass lineup with the Pro Series Spectra series, which includes four and five-string basses. Each model sports the Spectra body shape with enhanced features including a multi-laminate wood body and through-body construction with a five-piece graphite-reinforced maple and walnut neck.

The fingerboard on each is made from caramelized jatoba and has a 12”-16” compound radius. Oval dark inlays mark the fretboard’s 24 frets. Other common features include Nordstrand single-coil soapbar pickups, an active/passive preamp with three-band EQ and mid-switch, and Jackson headstocks.

The Pro Series Spectra Bass SBP IV is a four-string with a poplar burl top that comes in Caribbean Blue or Transparent Black Burst finishes. The five-string, 35-inch scale SBP V also has a poplar burl top and comes in Transparent Cherry Burst. Finally, the SBA V has a flatsawn ash top in a Blue Burst finish with black hardware.

The Jackson Guitars Pro Series Spectra Basses will be shipping in April with prices ranging from $899 to $999.
