I recently acquired a nice jazz bass, with a bad playing neck. I took the bass to my local tech, a Fender authorized repairman, for a pro set-up. He found it had a shim installed and worked to adjust the neck. The verdict from him & another Fender dealer/repair guy is - you got a bad neck. He could only adjust it so much. Verdict is high fret bump around the 3rd fret on the G string side, and a ski jump at the neck heel. Options are to - • play it as is, which I don't care for • fret file/dress for $150 or ~ • fret removal, plane the board, install new frets for $400 My question is will it play well with just a file/dress, or go the full monte with the fretboard plane?
