A Powerfully Playable Bass

Become a low-frequency fiend with the Jackson JS3V Concert Bass! The JS3V Concert Bass packs plenty of punch and sleek looks too with its basswood body topped with figured maple and bound maple neck. You'll own the rhythm section when you plug in - the JS3V Concert Bass comes equipped with two Jackson humbucking pickups, ready for you to dial in your ideal tone. And for a commanding feel, the Indian Rosewood fingerboard features a 12"-16" compound radius for effortless playability. If you're looking for a seriously playable bass at a great value, look no further than the Jackson JS3V Concert Bass.

Jackson JS3V Concert Bass at a Glance
  • Compound radius fingerboard delivers maximum playability and comfort
  • Powerful electronics let you tweak your tone to perfection
  • Built with unbeatable Jackson quality
Compound Radius Fretboard

The JS3V Concert Bass features a 12"-16" compound radius fretboard for ultimate playability. The Indian Rosewood fingerboard is rounder near the nut for easy rhythm playing. As your playing heats up and moves up the fretboard, the radius flattens out for easier runs and big, big string bends. With a neck that plays this slick, you'll be up at the 24th fret before you know it.

Powerful electronics let you tweak your tone to perfection

Jackson stocks the JS3V Concert Bass with two high-output humbucking pickups, positioned to capture the fullest tone possible. You can sculpt your tone any way you see fit with the bass, mid, and treble tone controls. Whether you're recording some mellow RnB or trying to cut through a speed-metal mix onstage, the JS3V Concert Bass has the tone-shaping power you need.

Built with unbeatable Jackson Quality

Jackson's JS series represents the best of Jackson's 30 years of axe-pertise, and the JS3V Concert Bass is no exception. You get killer tonewoods, high-output electronics, and a compound radius fingerboard, all at a price that belies its performance. And when you get on stage with this bass-beast in your hands, everyone will know you're playing a Jackson thanks to the iconic sharkfin inlays and tilt-back headstock.

WORTH IT FOR SURE!

I first came across this bass when I met David Ellefson of Megadeth at Sweetwater. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it. With the Active 3-band EQ, volume knobs for each individual pickup, and the solid body of this bass, it makes for one GREAT instrument for the low end. The B string on this bass sound excellent. I could not ask more for $400.00.

Bang for your buck

If you are looking for a 5 string bass with active electronics for a great price, this bass is for you. The stock Jackson pickups and the 3 band EQ provide a great variety of tones. The Transparent Amber color is what sold me. I like to have guitars that just stand out on stage and catch everyone's eye and this one does just that. Great looking/sounding bass and great quality.

Amazing Bass!

I love this bass! It has become my favorite by far. The neck is perfect and Jackson really upgraded the pickups and bridge from the previous model for the better.
