X Series Spectra Bass SBXP V, Laurel Fingerboard, Transparent Purple Burst
With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson® X Series Spectra Bass SBXP V takes the adventurous player on a bold bass odyssey, launching a commanding all-new entry in Jackson’s formidable neck-through-body bass lineup.
The offset Spectra Bass body style was innovatively designed with the gigging musician in mind. Its poplar body with poplar burl top 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 bound laurel fingerboard and 24 frets for superior playability.
The SBXP V 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 five-string, 35”-scale bass also features a HiMass™ hardtail bridge that enhances sustain and improves note attack.
Budget friendly and loaded with value, the X Series Spectra Bass SBXP V comes in standout Transparent Purple Burst with a unique 3x2 color matched headstock with understated “J” logo and black hardware.
Poplar Body With Poplar Burl Top
Poplar is a softer wood that offers a meaty, resonant tone with a distinguished upper midrange tone quite similar to alder. The poplar burl top adds even more upper midrange as well as a distinctive wood grain pattern that pairs wonderfully with a variety of transparent finishes.
