Jackson Basses, have they always been active
I've been looking at trying a classic Jackson (before fender bought and desttroyed them. I've heard good things about their basses. I was looking them over and have yet to come across a naturally (unmotified) passive Jackson. Was there ever a time Jackson was Passive, if so when and what models?
20+ years ago I owned a MIJ Concert XL
A passive P/J (V/B/T) poplar slab body bass with black hardware and ultra flat rosewood fingerboard with pearloid sharkfin inlays
Except that it weighted just like a bass, it could handle an electric guitar like ultra low action with no fret buzz at all, but honestly was really really poor soundin' and - but back in the day I just wasn't aware - it would have better benefit from a set of, say, EMGhz pickups or others;)
Exceptional fit and finish, but no good overall bass
Today beware cheap JS2/JS3 indian cedro bodied Concerts, otherwise, from EMG equipped ones up until Hatebreed's Chris Beattie to updated Ellefson fallout signature models, they're back with a vengeance, just much more expensive than they used to be.
