2011 Fender Jazz Deluxe V broken truss rod

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by ModulusQ5-122, Nov 15, 2012.

  1. So I got my 2011 jazz deluxe in just a few minutes ago. I pulled it out and checked it out, looks great. So I go to do my normal setup on it. The neck has a slight front bow that I wanted to get out. Went to turn it and it turn very easily with no force at all. Kept turning and noticed the neck wasn't budging and noticed the truss was unscrewing completely out of the neck. I'm assuming this is a broken truss rod?

    So your turning the truss rod nut to the right (in other words tightening it) and the truss rod nut is working it way out? Or are you turning it to the left?

    I've got a 2005 fender jazz deluxe and the same thing happened to my bass, the truss rod was broken and I purchased it brand new!!!!! I made numerous calls to fender and fought with them until they finally gave me a new neck.
  4. I'm turning to the left and its backing out.

    So you think fender would do something about it?

    If you're turning it to the left (counterclockwise) then it will work it's way out. You are loosening the nut. If you turn it to the right (clockwise) it should tighten up and take the bow out of the neck.
  8. Oh wow, I feel stupid. You guys have to forgive me. I just recently started doing my own setups but the only ones I have done have been adjusted at the nut and I was looking at it backwards. Crap!!! Ma bad y'all.
  9. Btw I just got the bow out. SMH face palm...doh!
