X Series Concert™ Bass CBXNT V MAH, Laurel Fingerboard, Natural
Hold down the low end with the X Series Concert™ Bass CBXNT V MAH, 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.
A 35” scale bass, the CBXNT V MAH features a poplar body with mahogany top and a one-piece maple neck-through-body design that generates formidable sustain. The speed neck contour, 12"-16" compound radius laurel bound fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets make for lightning-fast playability.
The heart of this five-string beast is a Jackson J-style bridge pickup and Jackson P-style neck pickup, mated to an active 3-band EQ circuit for adding punch, cut, rumble or grunt to your sound. 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.
Sure to make a statement, the CBXNT V MAH is dressed in a Natural finish with parchment pickguard, gold hardware, pearloid sharkfin inlays and the famous pointed 5-in-line headstock to create a look that’s simultaneously classic and current. Highly affordable, this instrument is the perfect weapon for the musician who requires nothing less than the latest in high-performance bass technology.
POPLAR BODY WITH MAHOGANY TOP
Poplar offers a meaty, resonant tone that is quite similar to alder. The poplar body is capped with a stately mahogany top that produces a rich, warm and resonant tone that is well balanced.
