Hohner B2AV-WS headless 5 String Modification Dear friends: I have acquired this Hohner bass with the plan to reconfigure it into a short-scale headless 5-string. The distance from the 2nd to the 14th fret is exactly 15 inches, which gives a perfect 30 scale. The plan, and reason Im doing this on relatively cheap but playable headless bass, is to saw off the neck just behind the 2nd fret. Then I will trim the head at the 0 fret, and shorten the neck by 3 3/4 (90 mm). The head can easily be glued and screwed back on, and with a string adaptor, Im in business. The problem is what to do about the truss rod. Im asking for any advice anybody might have about what is involved in shortening it. I havent done anything yet, but Im assuming that I can just remove it by unscrewing it, pulling it out of the neck, then figure out some way to shorten the rod and reinstall it. But I dont want to try to remove it and wind up damaging the neck. I dont want to get involved with removing the fingerboard if possible. Any thoughts on how to do this?
