About Jackson Bass Guitars

Jackson bass guitars are known for their fast necks, modern looks and powerful tones.

Not for the faint of heart, Jackson basses have an aggressive and in-your-face tone. Jackson themselves describe them as ‘brutal beasts’. Coupled with their thin necks and low action, these basses have become a staple among metal and hardcore guitarists. Signature models from Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Hatebreed’s Chris Beattie are a testament to their playability and crushing tones.

There is room for nuance within Jackson basses. Their range includes passive and active basses so you can sculpt precise tones. The popular Minion Series is a wonderful range of short scale basses. The reduced length of neck and smaller body size makes these perfect for beginners, who often find full-size basses awkward.

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Jackson Bass Guitars

    Question: Are Jackson Basses good for beginners?
    Jackson Minion basses are extremely popular among novice bassists. They have a short scale length which means the length of the neck is greatly reduced. This makes it easier to reach the first frets and easier to press down on the string because there is less tension. This makes learning the bass significantly easier.
    Question: Who plays a Jackson Bass?
    Jackson Basses are predominantly played by metal bassists who are looking for a precise and punchy tone. Most famous among them are David Ellefon (Megadeth) and Chris Beattie (Hatebreed). They now both have their own signature models.
