Jackson and Megadeth’s David Ellefson joined forces to bring a fresh new spin on his signature lineup with the 4-string X Series Signature David Ellefson Concert™ Bass CBXM IV and 5-string X Series Signature David Ellefson Concert™ Bass CBXM V. These hard-hitting models are ravishing in look and sound, exquisite in feel and loaded with personal design touches straight from the man himself.
Both models feature a poplar body constructed with an upper contour that provides a comfortably stable anchor for pick or fingerstyle playing alike, and a lower contour for perfect balance when propped on a knee. A graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck provides the utmost stability for highly-technical lightspeed playing, while the 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard has been designed for increased playing comfort and speedy articulation. A heel-mount truss rod thumbwheel also allows for quick and convenient neck adjustments.
