Jackson endorsee David Ellefson (MEGADETH) recently teamed up with the guitar firm once again to unveil two new instruments — the JS2 and JS3 Kelly Bird basses.
Both basses are based around the much-loved Kelly guitar shape and aimed at the more affordable end of the market.
The JS2 (pictured below in Matte Black) has a basswood body, maple neck, two Jackson JS Hi-Output humbuckers and Jackson-branded hardware. Control-wise there are independent volume knobs for each pickup and a single Master Tone pot. It is also available in Burnt Cherry Sunburst.
Sister model the JS3 (pictured below in Trans Blue) features the same specifications as it’s slightly more affordable sibling, but adds a three-band EQ and offers Trans Black and Trans Blue finish options.
