What Haworth Guitars say:
The Jackson JS3VQ Concert 5-string Bass Guitar boasts 24 jumbo frets on a compound radius fretboard which feels fast and easy to play. The high-output Jackson humbucker pickups pump out a powerful sound when combined with the active 3-band EQ. The JS3VQ model also has a gorgeous quilt maple top which looks amazing in both the Transparent Black, Transparent Red and Cherry Burst Finishes.
At Haworth Guitars we love the finer details on the Jackson JS3VQ Concert Bass such as the binding along the fretboard, the quilt maple top, the high-mass bridge and the fast feeling neck and fretboard.
What Jackson has to say:
Jackson’s JS Series Concert™ Bass models rock seismic sound, style and affordability.
The five-string Concert Bass JS3VQ is a 35”-scale model featuring a lightweight and resonant poplar body with an elegant quilt maple top, fully bound bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement and scarf joint, and a 12”-16” compound radius amaranth fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and classic sharkfin inlays.
Dual Jackson high-output humbucking bass pickups power a monstrous low-end growl, while a HiMass™ bridge provides rock-solid stability. The JS3VQ is also equipped with an active 3-band EQ and a pair of volume control knobs to refine and tweak tone.
A thunderous bass loaded with vibe and value, the JS3VQ is available in a striking Cherry Burst, Transparent Black Burst or Transparent Red Burst finish with black hardware and a Jackson pointed 5-in-line headstock.
