I have a 60's Fender Jazz Bass and the electronics seem noisy compaired to the newer passive models. The controls are all scratchy and there is some hum. Has some or all of the electronic componentry changed? Would it be bad form to replace the pots and maybe the old wire?
I don't want to devalue the instrument but it sounds like garbage falling. I thought I would check here for any suggestions before taking a long drive to the repair shop.
Thanks for any help.
