X Series Spectra Bass SBXM IV, Maple Fingerboard, Snow White

$529.99 MSRP
New

With modern style, flexible tone and incomparable value, the Jackson® X Series Spectra Bass SBXM IV 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 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 maple fingerboard and 24 frets for superior playability.

The SBXM IV 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 four-string bass also features a HiMass™ hardtail bridge that enhances sustain and improves note attack.

Featuring a unique 2x2 black headstock with an understated “J” logo, the budget-friendly SBXM IV comes in a classic Snow White finish with gleaming gold hardware.

THROUGH-BODY MAPLE NECK WITH GRAPHITE REINFORCEMENT AND SCARF JOINT

Extending the piece of wood used for the neck through the entire length of the guitar’s body allows for greater playability and sustain across the whole instrument. Graphite-reinforcement rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road, while scarf joint for an angled back headstock increases the tension behind the nut that eliminates the need for string trees and/or string retainer bars.

12"-16" COMPOUND RADIUS MAPLE 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.
