    Free bump for an awesome bass!
    I have one of these, and the build quality is freakin awesome: it plays like buttah!
    One of these with a set of flats KILLS!
    That's a damn righteous price by the way...

    Thanks, man. It's a sweet bass, especially for the price. But I recently acquired a Custom Shop 55 Relic so...:smug:

    Did Americans, Japanese, Koreans or Mexicans make this bass?

    Crafted in Japan, as it says on the heel of the neck. ;)

    Crafted in Japan is the higher end stuff (as opposed to made in japan). They have fender custom shop pups, old school high quailty reverse tuners, nice string thru bridge with only 2 saddles. Really really high quality stuff.

    I played one of these basses at a local store and the fingerstyle sound was just amazing, palm muted was a wonderful treat as well. This bass with some flats would kill many times over, I bet it would be groovy with a pick too! :bassist:

    Bump for a sweet bass at a even sweeter price, if I wasn't trying to buy a Fender Bassman 100 and my jazz not needing a re-fret, I would be all over this Bo!

    Peace,

    do you have to take the pickguard off to adjust the truss rod?

    Does it have a route for a trussrod tool then under the pickguard?

    There's an indentation but you use a screwdriver on the old Fenders, not a trussrod tool.

    Ahhh, right, like my Geddy. The reason I ask is, at least on my Geddy, you pretty much have to loosen the neck to get at the truss rod, and if you angle it up enough, you don't have to remove the guard. Dunno if the same is true for this fine piece, which I'm still struggling over, by the way... :)

    You could alternately loosen the neck bolts, tilt the neck up out of the neck pocket and access the truss rod. Yup, that's one way to do it, although I've always prefered to pull the pickguard and leave the neck tightly bolted up. A matter of preference, I suppose.

    On the Geddy, you have to loosen the neck anyway. There's really not enough room otherwise. Apparently, on this bass, there's more of an indent there... that's nice.
