I just recently picked up a 5-string Deluxe Series Jazz bass (1997) on ebay. When I got it in the mail I was sorely disappointed to find that there was a crack in the freboard through the middle of the 1st fret. The truss rod looks to be trashed, and it doesn't seem to turn. I immediately emailed the seller, providing pictures and trying to sort this all out. I came to find that the bridge pickup is dead as well, but that's another story. In any case, I got the bass for a steal (originally..hah) with a vintage 60's Fender case (he didn't know it was a vintage case that I can tell)...so I'd rather not return any of what I got. However, there is still that huge truss rod issue. Anyways, I was wondering how much it would cost to fix something like this (if fixable at all)?? I'd provide pictures, but I'm out of town. My guess was $125, but I bet that's low.
