1) I know what I hear from my current bass, and how it plays too. But would like to know how you find its sound. Comments from non-JC owners are welcome. There are lots of topics and posts about Jackson Charvels here but mostly pics and specs (that was close Barry lol). I couldn't find much on you tube as well. Someone posted a sound review of a 1989 model which is very similar to mine but would like more info. For those who haven't heard a 2B, here's the link. 2) Also, all its tone pots are not working properly. What would be a good/acceptable budget replacement? 3) Based on sound alone, would you keep it for life? Thanks TBers.
