Geddy Lee pickguard

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by rabid_granny, Feb 6, 2002.

  1. Anyways, there is a Geddy Lee jazz bass near my house...yaddah yaddah.

    I see that the truss rod is kinda hidden by the pickguard. A reviewer on Harmony Central said he had to drill a hole in his pickguard to access the truss rod.


    If the Geddy Lee jazz bass is a 1972 replica, could I simply replace the existing pickguard with a new pickguard that has a hole for the truss rod?

    The pickguard is 3-ply. I don't know if this is relevant.

    You could just take off the pickgaurd when you need to adjust the truss rod if that is the case. I dont know why you would need to drill a hole in the pickgaurd.

    I have a Geddy, and I've left it the way it was. It's not like you really have to mess with the truss rod all that much. Not only that, it's not like it's a pain to take off the pg anyhow.
