Model: 2916647590 | X Series
Hold down the low end with the CBXNT IV, 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.
The heart of this beast is a pair of Jackson® High Output Humbucking Bass pickups mated to an active 3-band EQ circuit, adding punch, cut, rumble or grunt to your sound—shaping it with razor-sharp precision before it ever hits an amplifier. 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. The one-piece neck-through-body design generates formidable sustain while the Speed Neck contour and 12"-16" compound radius rosewood fingerboard make for lightning-fast playability.
Jackson’s darkly elegant aesthetics cap off this bass—black hardware, pearloid sharkfin inlays and the famous pointed 4-In-Line headstock create a look that’s simultaneously classic and current. The latest in technical bass innovations, the CBXNT IV is the perfect weapon for the musician who requires nothing less than the latest in high-performance bass technology.
Jackson X series models feature a selection of EMG® and Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups for unparalleled tonal versatility from clean to heavily distorted. All tremolo-equipped models feature Floyd Rose® Special bridges.
True neck-through-body construction has been a Jackson hallmark since 1980. For greater playability and sustain, X Series models feature a neck-through design usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. Further, graphite support rods flanking the truss rod provide even more neck stability to help the instrument withstand the rigors of the road.
X Series models feature compound-radius fingerboards. Jackson pioneered the use of this innovative 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.
The X Series presents a wealth of distinctive Jackson stylistic options from the subdued to the striking. Sharkfin or “piranha” fingerboard inlays. The traditional Jackson six-in-line headstock or an AT headstock with tuners on either side. Deep solid colors or beautifully figured tops. The X Series has something for everyone.
