With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson X Series Spectra Bass SBX IV takes the adventurous player on a bold bass odyssey, launching a commanding all-new entry in Jacksons formidable neck-through-body bass lineup.

The offset Spectra Bass body style was innovatively designed with the gigging musician in mind. It's nyatoh body has a larger upper horn that evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument for perfect balance and playing comfort. The graphite-reinforced through-body maple neck with scarf joint creates formidable sustain, with a speed neck contour, 12"-16" compound radius laurel fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets for superior playability.

The SBX IV provides a full-sonic spectrum for even the most versatile and progressive bassists. Dual passive medium-output humbucking pickups create a dynamic foundation with punch, power and note articulation. Wide-ranging tonal command comes from a two-way toggle switch for pickup coil splitting, 3-band active EQ, blend control and volume control with push/pull selector to bypass or engage active circuit for the 3-band EQ. The push/pull selector eliminates the risk of losing sound due to a dead battery. A quick pull on the volume knob bypasses the active circuit, making it easy to regain sound from the bass without the use of battery power.

This four-string bass also features a HiMass hardtail bridge that enhances sustain and improves attack.

Featuring a unique 2x2 black headstock with an understated J logo, the budget-friendly SBX IV comes in new stage-conquering Gloss Black or Matte Army Drab finishes with black hardware.

THROUGH-BODY MAPLE NECK WITH GRAPHITE REINFORCEMENT AND SCARF JOINT

Extending the piece of wood used for the neck through the entire length of the guitars body allows for greater playability and sustain across the whole instrument. Graphite-reinforcement rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigours of the road, while scarf joint for an angled back headstock increases the tension behind the nut that eliminates the need for string trees and/or string retainer bars.

VOLUME CONTROL WITH PUSH/PULL FOR ACTIVE/PASSIVE OPTIONS & TWO-WAY TOGGLE SWITCH FOR PICKUP COIL SPLIT

The volume control contains a push/pull selector to switch between passive or active pickups. A two-way toggle switch splits the coils of the Jackson medium-output humbucking pickups for an expanded tonal landscape.
