Please don't show us any photos, I am already feeling sick 😉

Sort of a wonky soundgear thing...

They need to delete all of them and do these again with classy pickups and pre’s.

I had a passive one in red, and it was ace.

That's confusing. This one is also called Pro Series Spectra Bass SBP (IV instead of V) but looks totally different from the ghoulish green and red ones. How come? Could they not come up with different names? Did not even bother? Oh dear.

No. Sorry.

I cropped a screenshot of the horrific green turdbacker from the “new for 2021” page - the spectra thing was above it...

IC. TBH, "CBXNT DX IV" is a fitting name for such a [censored] bass 😁

What were they smoking?

What’s the V stand for in the model name? Vomit-inducing?

Amber Mendez : I'm warning you, I get sick. Air sick, car sick. I'm gonna throw up all over you.

Richards : Go ahead. Won't show on this shirt.

So, thinking of the back catalogue of Jackson - they got in bother for this in the 1990’s...

Mr Marleaux didn’t take kindly to them pilfering his shape...

”Taking without Consat...”

sorry.

But in the family canon...they had this Ric-inspired gem...they could’ve done a rework.

It's an Eliminator 

Wasn’t the guitar called a fusion? I may be wrong

I think there was a Fusion bass too which looked very similar to the Eliminator. 

Mind you, I thought a lot of their guitars looked exactly the same too!

They're practically identical apart from the control layout and that line above the bass-side of the pickups. Strange!
