The JS3QV Spectra is an all-new bass addition to the Jackson roster. Featuring a sleek offset body design, it combines versatility with enormous sound - resulting a bass that oozes attitude.

Body & Neck

Jackson have opted for a Poplar body with a Quilted Maple top. The accentuated upper horn gives the Spectra a distinct offset appearance, while ensuring that the body is balanced and comfortable to play.

For the neck, the Maple theme continues, featuring a scarf joint for optimal sustain.  A speedy neck contour and compound radius ensures speed, precision and familiarity in equal measure.

Hardware & Electronics

The Spectra comes loaded with dual Jackson medium-output humbuckers, providing more tonal versatility than its bold looks might suggest. Expect plenty of solid low-end combined with cutting-edge clarity.

A HiMass bridge provides rock-solid stability, improved sustain and bolder tone. Tone can be further refined and tweaked with a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, as well as blend/volume controls with switchable active 3-band EQ. With the push/pull selector, you’ll never have to fear a battery running out and losing sound. A quick pull on the volume knob will bypass the active circuit, making it easy to regain sound from the bass without the use of battery power.
