Hold down the low end with the CBXNT V, a highly versatile bass designed for one express purpose—bringing the thunder to your music. Upgraded electronics, classically brutal style and fast, efficient playability make this entry into the lineup a fundamental force to be reckoned with. Perfect for metal—or other styles that demand low, punchy bass—this instrument is an unbelievable value.
The heart of this beast is a pair of Jackson® High Output Humbucking Bass pickups mated to an active 3-band EQ circuit, adding punch, cut, rumble or grunt to your sound—shaping it with razor-sharp precision before it ever hits an amplifier. A Jackson HiMass™ bridge enhances note attack and sustain without altering your carefully crafted tone while the sealed die-cast tuning machines keep the strings in tune, no matter how hard you dig into them. The one-piece neck-through-body design generates formidable sustain while the Speed Neck contour and 12"-16" compound radius rosewood fingerboard make for lightning-fast playability.
Jackson’s darkly elegant aesthetics cap off this bass—black hardware, pearloid sharkfin inlays and the famous pointed 5-In-Line headstock create a look that’s simultaneously classic and current. The latest in technical bass innovations, the CBXNT V is the perfect weapon for the musician who requires nothing less than the latest in high-performance bass technology.
