Versatile style and enormous sound collide in the all-new JS Series Spectra Bass JS2.
The brand-new offset body style was designed with the artist in mind. The poplar body with large upper horn evenly distributes weight throughout the instrument, providing perfect balance by reducing neck dive for hours of comfortable playing. A bolt-on maple neck with scarf joint design provides rock-solid reliability, while the speed neck contour and 12" radius laurel fingerboard with 24 frets make for lightning-fast playability.
The Spectra Bass JS2 provides a sound that is as unique as the bassist playing it. Whether it be funk, hard rock or gospel, a colossal Jackson J-style bridge pickup and P-style neck pickup deliver a range of punchy growls or lucid tones, while the hardtail bridge provides enhanced stability, improved sustain and bolder timbre.
Tone can be refined and tweaked with the blend, bass boost and volume controls (with a push/pull selector to bypass or engage the active circuit for the bass boost). 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.
Highly affordable, the 4-string Spectra Bass JS2 comes in an array of stunning finishes with black hardware and a unique 2x2 headstock with an understated J logo.
JACKSON P-STYLE (NECK) AND J-STYLE (BRIDGE) PICKUPS
This classic P/J combo with a colossal Jackson J-style bridge and P-style neck pickups deliver a sonically full voice with both boom and bark. The P-style neck pickup packs an authoritative punchy thump with more rounded high-mids and treble range, while the J-style bridge pickup delivers sharp and articulate tones.
