About This Listing

Production of the Charvel 2B began in 1986 and ended in 1989.
TERMS OF BODY design and contours this Charvel 2B bass has no surprises and is certainly as reminiscent of traditional designs as any other production instrument around today. However, true to the standard of the guitars that Charvel have put out on to the market so far, both the finish and construction of this 2B bass is superb.
A matt lacquer has been applied to the neck and fingerboard which is smooth, fast to play and very attractive, allowing every detail of the grain to show through. There is no shabby finish to any cavity or edge and the neck fits the body snugly. Needless to say, the instrument balanced nicely, was comfortable and the neck, while a little on the chunky side, certainly offers the type of contoured design which is so good for speed.
The pickup and control arrangement is just about as simple as it’s possible to get - a PB split coil pickup and Jazz Single with just two controls, one volume, one tone and 3 way switch. As regards the tone,active Jackson Low Impendance electronics helps to get punchy fullsounding bass range that ideal for mix, which is a pleasant change from all the modern, toppy-tone basses we look at. But with the control turned fully to the bass it almost seemed too muddy to be really usable without the help of a graphic. However, with the tone control turned further up to the treble the 2B does yield a bright sound with rounded bass — a bit Rickenbacker 4001ish.
Its a very good bass with a reasonable mid-range price, this bass is surprisingly useful and versatile. It can basically sound the way it's played; slap sounds slap, jazz sounds jazz, blues sound blues and of course METALL:-)
