Get the sound you want with the looks you love from Jackson and David Ellefson.
The David Ellefson CB-X 4-string X-Series bass is a formidable addition to the Jackson bass family, bearing the personal stamp and distinctive features of the fleet-fingered Megadeth bassist. From its earth-shaking dual humbucking pickups to its lightspeed compound-radius fingerboard and sophisticated onboard controls, the CB-X is pure Jackson and pure Ellefson in sound, feel, look and value.
Some features include an alder Concert Bass body with a gloss finish in Black or Quicksilver for killer looks. Its bolt-on, quartersawn maple neck with special profile shape, ivoroid binding and oiled finish give it a solid yet smooth, playable feel. The rosewood fingerboard with 21 jumbo frets and shark fin inlays, and ivoroid-bound black headstock with '90s-style Jackson logo give the CB-XV an unmistakable look.
The EMG humbucking neck (HZ35N) and bridge (HZ35B) pickups and EMG BEQ3 active preamp are the perfect set of electronics to help you dial in the sound you want. Domed volume, three-band EQ and blend control knobs, high-mass four-string bridge, black hardware, and David Ellefson silver "Fallout" logo on the truss rod cover round out the awesome looks and utility of this shredder's dream.

Comments about Jackson Dave Ellefson Signature CBX X Series Electric Bass Guitar:
I have been in the music scene for 35 years either in a production/ audio capacity and playing in and out of numerous bands. I am in a Alice in Chains Tribute band, and a local band. I wanted a second Bass and I frequent the used and returned section here at Music 123. When I saw this Bass, and saw that it needed minimal repair, I jumped all over this. I could not be happier with my purchase!! I will continue to surf Music 123 as I have in the past. A great addition to my collection!!!
