Jackson’s JS Series Concert™ Bass models rock seismic sound, style and affordability.
The five-string Concert Bass JS3VQ is a 35”-scale model featuring a lightweight and resonant poplar body with an elegant quilt maple top, fully bound bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, and a 12”-16” compound radius amaranth fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and classic sharkfin inlays.
Dual Jackson high-output humbucking bass pickups power a monstrous low-end growl, while a HiMass™ bridge provides rock-solid stability. The JS3VQ is also equipped with an active 3-band EQ and a pair of volume control knobs to refine and tweak tone.
A thunderous bass loaded with vibe and value, the JS3VQ is available in a striking Cherry Burst, Transparent Black Burst or Transparent Red Burst finish with black hardware and a Jackson pointed 5-in-line headstock.

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.
