Jackson Releases All-New JS Series Kelly Bird Basses
Brand new body shapes inspired by Megadeth
bassist David Ellefson.
The Bloodline has announced two new additions to its JS Series,
the JS2 Kelly Bird IV and the JS3 Kelly Bird IV. These new and
highly distinctive designs are the result of a longtime
collaboration between two metal icons, Jackson guitars and
legendary Megadeth bass player David Ellefson.
The JS2 Kelly Bird IV offers striking looks coupled with
pummeling tones. Features include a basswood body, bolt-on maple
neck, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, Jackson's
unrivaled compound radius, dual Jackson JS high-output covered
pickups, Jackson high-mass bridge and Jackson tuners. Available in
Burnt Cherry Sunburst and Matte Black.
Designed with the serious metal bass player in mind, the JS3
Kelly Bird IV features a basswood body (flame maple top on trans
finishes), bolt-on maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 21
frets and block inlays, dual Jackson JS high-output covered
pickups, three-band active EQ (bass/mid/high), Jackson high-mass
bridge and Jackson tuners. Available in Trans Black and Trans Blue
