    You know more about Jackson than any 3 people I can name :)

    It won't be me! That bass just kills, and won't be leaving my hands anytime soon.

    This one is similar, but not exact- knobs are in a different configuration. I'm a noob to the forum- any idea where I could post to get this identified? On the bottom of the fretboard is "J5465" so I believe it was made in 1995, and again looks like the TBX but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated! Jackson J5465.jpg

    that is a USA version t-bird you can't look up the serial on those converters. That was made in Ontario Cal. in 1989.
    I think someone added that lowest pot but you would have to turn it over and let me see the inside.

    Thanks a lot, Amimbari. Here is a pic of the backside with the panel open. Does that help or should I take one more zoomed in/out?

    no that is fine. Someone added that je2000 preamp in there ---- I mean who uses masking tape and nobody soldered a ground onto that lower pot to tie it into the others ...lol

    Anyway, it was probably a passive with the 2 knobs and switch when it left the factory.
