    i've got a fleichman bass, headless, with
    problems. 7/16 string height above pickups.
    one of two truss rods broken.
    this is a neck through - is it going to be possible to put it into playing condition?

    i've been waiting for him to call me back -
    three weeks now, two email and two phone messages.
    I'm sort of beginning to think he may not want to
    deal with it...

    I don't know anything about his instruments, but it should be possible to replace the truss rod. The bad news is that it might be necessary to remove the fingerboard to do it. Not a casual job in any case.
