Hi everybody, I've spent a lot of time in here recently and have noticed just the shear number of ppl posting about bad Fender necks, and it got me thinking. (I too own a brand new Jazz with a lousy truss rod, so count me among the afflicted.) Why does Fender continue to use the same truss rods in the same fashion as they have been for decades? Why can't they emulate the Ernie Ball type truss rods (the best I think) with the adjustable wheel and admit they have a problem? Talk to any Tele player about truss rods and he'll answer with a painful grimace about the total inconveniece of removing the neck to make any adjustments at all. Get with the times, Fender! I have so many questions just like many others in here about this.
