    Hi guys. I've been wondering If it's possible for fender american standard bass (jazz or precision) to replace the truss rod nut (Only nut). If truss rod nut has been worn severely and can't adjust the truss rod, how can i do? Even though I have tried to find the answer though Googling , but I couldn't. ( I've Only found how to adjust truss rod or Videos replacing truss rod nut to be located in the head of neck such as Mexican, Japen fender.) If anyone know that, please reply to me. I just want to know whether the MIA fender standard bass' truss rod nut could be removed and changed for another new thing or not.

    Remove neck, unscrew old truss rod nut, screw on new one, reinstall neck, string it up, adjust truss rod in small increments (+/- 1/4 turn) and give it a day or so to settle and readjust if necessary.

    +1, except for the "small increments/quarter turn" thing; get the new nut on there, tighten until the neck is straight again, done.

    A little bit of wax or very little bit of oil in the threads before screwing it on is a good idea.
