Jackson’s JS Series Concert™ Bass models rock seismic sound, style and affordability.
The Concert Bass JS3 is a four-string, 34”-scale model featuring a lightweight and resonant poplar body, bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and a 12”-16” compound radius bound amaranth fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays.
Dual Jackson high-output humbucking bass pickups create a monstrous low-end growl, while a HiMass™ bridge provides rock-solid stability, improved sustain and bolder tone. Tone can be refined and tweaked with a pair of volume controls and an active three-band EQ. Loaded with vibe and value, the Concert Bass JS3 is available in Metallic Blue and Satin Black finishes with black hardware.
12"-16" Compound Radius Fingerboard
Jackson pioneered the use of the innovative 12"-16" compound radius design, in which the fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.
