Can you adjust the Precision Special rod without disassembling ?

    I seriously consider getting the precision special but before that I would like to confirm with anyone who owns and maintenance the bass: is it possible to adjust the truss rod without unscrewing the neck and/or pickguard ?

    I saw the ball end fender keys - will it be possible with it ?

    This is kind of the deal breaker for me so I would be grateful for the answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    Put a notched pick guard on it and you can.
    I can adjust my P5 and Jazz with no problems.

    Yes, there is a small cut out routed in the pickguard for that reason. It will require the the 3/16 ball end, T-handle wrench. The wrench should be included. That is a great Pbass IMHO.
