Are the Geddy J's...

  1. Not supposed to have a route from the neck pickup? Cause I just took off my pickguard, and there is no route in the body.


    If so, does anyone play their Geddy's without the pg on it?

    You have to take the neck off for adjustments. Frustrating as hell. Nino did some routing on his, so now he has a channel for truss rod access.

    Nino built this one for me and put the route in. The body was a MIM that was routed for the MM pickup and battery cavity in the back. Got it from another TBer.

    None of the early 70's had a truss rod access.

    I've owned 3 Geddy Lee's & the 1st one I had needed a neck adjustment. When I took off the neck a nice piece of paint came flying off. :( since then, I've routed a truss rod access similar to the one on Corwin's bass.

    Funny thing, when I bought the 1st one, it was new in to box & had a nice Flyer of Geddy playing his bass & there was a nice truss rod route. If I find the picture, I'll post it.
